The most influential part comes from the two said wings in the front bumper, rear spoiler and a carbon fiber blade vents behind the wheel.Â No doubt better aerodynamics Exige Sport 380 60% compared to 350, but the number of the coefficient of drag (cd) unchanged.
From the development of the sector generating performance acceleration 0-100 km / h in 3.7 seconds or 0.2 seconds faster than the Exige 350.
