Title (EN) CONFIGURABLE REAR UNDERBODY AERODYNAMIC DIFFUSER
(FR) DIFFUSEUR AÉRODYNAMIQUE DE SOUBASSEMENT ARRIÈRE DE CARROSSERIE CONFIGURABLE
Abstract:
(EN) Multiple vertical panel strakes (42) extend from a rear underbody (22) of the automobile in a street configuration. Multiple vertical panel extensions (58) include extension coupling elements designed to removably couple the vertical panel extensions (58) to the plurality of vertical strakes (42) in a track configuration. When the rear underbody aerodynamic diffuser is in the street configuration, the plurality of vertical panel extensions (58) are uncoupled from the plurality of vertical panel strakes (42) and the vertical panel strakes (42) have an overall width that extends a vertical street distance. When the rear underbody aerodynamic diffuser is in the track configuration, the plurality of vertical panel extensions (58) are removably coupled to the plurality of vertical panel strakes (42) and the combined vertical panel strakes (42) and vertical panel extensions (58) have an overall width that extends a vertical track distance that is greater than the vertical street distance.
(FR) Selon l'invention, des virures de panneau verticales multiples (42) s'étendent à partir d'un soubassement arrière (22) de carrosserie de l'automobile dans une configuration de rue. Des extensions de panneau verticales (58) multiples comprennent des éléments de couplage d'extension conçus pour coupler amovibles les extensions de panneau verticales (58) à la pluralité de virures verticales (42), dans une configuration de piste. Lorsque le diffuseur aérodynamique de soubassement arrière selon l'invention se trouve dans la configuration de rue, la pluralité d'extensions de panneau verticales (58) sont séparées de la pluralité de virures de panneau verticales (42) et ces dernières (42) présentent une largeur globale qui s'étend sur une distance de rue verticale. Lorsque le diffuseur aérodynamique de soubassement arrière selon l'invention se trouve dans la configuration de piste, la pluralité d'extensions de panneau verticales (58) sont couplées amovibles à la pluralité de virures de panneau verticales (42) et aux extensions de panneau verticales combinées (42), et les extensions de panneau verticales (58) présentent une largeur globale qui s'étend sur une distance de piste verticale supérieure à la distance de rue verticale.
