Air flows through ducts within the front headlight casings and others in the sideskirts and around the wheel arches, improving airflow to the rear radiators and providing optimized cooling.
An extendable rear wing is integrated in body when stationary or at low speeds to preserve the minimalist lines of the Centenario.
According to vehicle dynamic conditions and Driving Mode chosen, the wing extends to 150 mm and rotates up to 15 degrees for optimal aerodynamic efficiency in high performance conditions.
