C7 Corvette APR Carbon Fiber Race Canard

APR Performance Front Bumper Canards for the C7 Corvette help to aerodynamically fine-tune downforce balance. Formed in the autoclave at high temperatures, the APR Performance Front Bumper Canards are made from pre-preg carbon fiber materials to be strong and light weight. These front bumper canards add not only awesome carbon fiber style to your Corvette they will help your car perform better.

Also known as dive planes or dive plates, they are small triangle wings attached to the front spoiler of a car for the purposes of modifying the aerodynamic characteristics of the car in a modest way. Canards help generate downforce in two different ways. First, the canard redirects the oncoming air's momentum upwards, which causes a downward force on the canard. This is only moderate, since the velocity near the skin of the car is significantly slower than in the free stream because of boundary layer effect. Dive plates are more trimming devices than anything else, they are too small to generate large amounts of downforce; instead, they are used to fine tune the vehicle handling before a race.

Looks freakin awesome! Too bad it won't work with the LG cheek coolers solution.
