Each part has actually been enhanced to cut weight, boost downforce and improve aerodynamics. These exterior parts alone have actually led to an overall weight cost savings of 23 pounds (10.5 kgs), in addition to almost 44 pounds (20 kgs) of decreases from other upgrades and new parts.
The front fenders now look like those on the GT3 GT-R. Scalloped vents assist funnel hot air far from the engine bay and offer extraordinary downforce onto the front tires, without extra drag.
