The air is sucked in and channeled by the stem of the chassis through the center of the grille towards the 2 water coolers. This then expelled via the extractors located on the hood. Thus, any negative pressure created through the process increases downforce at the front of the car. Even that large blade of the lower splitter and the stepped flat bottom also contribute to aerodynamic at the front. There are 2 fins on the side of the bumper that create vortices, they help limiting the turbulence of the rotating wheels.
This extraordinary design reflects Renault’s passion for motor sports. It aims to achieve the next level of performance to deliver the thrill for both driver and public.
