The striking forms of the Corvette ZR1 are not just the whim of the designers. Each line is there for some reason. The air intakes in the fascia and in the chest, for example, have the task of supplying enough cold air to the massive V8 6.2-liter. The wing provides the downforce needed to keep the Corvette with the tires on the asphalt at high speeds.

Series takes a Low Wing: a spoiler “small”, which generates 70% more downforce than a Z06, but for those who want to manipulate the winds to his whim, Chevrolet offers the High Wing: a spoiler, adjustable in two positions that allows to obtain a aerodynamic load of up to 430 kilograms. Both wings are anchored to the chassis to provide greater stability.
