Functional Hood Vent and Quarter Inlets

If you think that all those vents were added just for looks, you're crazy. Every single feature on this car has a purpose. In the front, the car eats up the air through a downward facing radiator, helping to cool the engine. The air escapes through the hood vent, spewing out over the top of the car to add more downforce. In addition, the air is sucked into those rear quarter inlets, cooling the differential and transmission, exiting through the teardrop vents that come off the taillights.
