In Africa, built a Nissan GT-R with front and rear wingApril 26, 2019
The Franco Scribante Racing racing team from South Africa showed the Nissan GT-R for a high-speed mountain climb, built in collaboration with Dodson Motorsport. The sports car received an aerodynamic body kit with front and rear wing profile, as well as a number of improvements, which allowed to improve its power characteristics.
The Australian Dynamic Aero Solutions helped to design a massive “tail” for the Nissan GT-R. She also conducted his virtual aerodynamic testing of CFD (computational fluid dynamics). As a result, dvuhdverka received carbon splitter and front fender, a huge diffuser, as well as a three-element rear fender. The effectiveness of the body kit will be checked early next month at the Simola Hillclimb event.
Under the hood, the Nissan GT-R has a heavily modified “six” 3.8 with two turbochargers. For the race, the power of the car is 1600 forces, but at the peak the unit can produce all 2,200. In 2018, Volkswagen told how he tuned the aerodynamics of the electric sport prototype ID. R for the Pikes Peak race. The first step was the creation of a scale model of a racing car with a modular body structure in order to quickly change individual elements. Total for ID. R on a 3D printer printed about 2000 parts.
