    [Quote=RoadandTrack] All the Mid-Engine Corvette Race Car's Hidden Aero Secrets

    Take a closer look at Chevrolet's interesting approach to mid-engine aerodynamics.

    New Chevrolet Corvette C8.R photos supplied to reveal the brand’s next-generation road car and GT Le Mans racer as an interesting approach to mid-engine design.

    With its move from the familiar front-engine solution to a mid-engine chassis layout, the C8.R bids farewell to most of the styling cues that have made its predecessors easily recognizable. Only the retention of the C7/C7.R’s nose and faceted grille profile, along with its rear fender solution, stand out as identifiable carryover items.

    Below picture of C8.R thanks and credit to Brian Williams/SpiedBilde:

    Without the engine dominating the front of the car, the C8.R sports a few obvious differences, most notably in its cooling architecture. Unlike Ford’s GT (below, in yellow), the Pratt & Miller Engineering team that designed the C8.R has avoided using large through-flow openings in the hood to evacuate hot air from the radiators. As best as we can tell, smaller exits at the back of the hood (in red) and possibly up high at the back of the wheel arches (also in red) have been employed to cool an engine that sounds a lot like a twin-turbo V8.

    Dual dive planes were fitted for initial testing, and a notched splitter, similar to what Lamborghini uses on its Huracan GT3 (below) serve as departures from the C7.R.
