BMW teams up with Italian styling gurus at Pininfarina for slick new coupe
What are the key changes to the body?
With the use of impressive and highly complicated computer and wind tunnel simulations, the F12 has been designed to slip through the air thanks to a 76% increase in downforce and a significant reduction in drag (the drag coefficient is just 0.299 versus 0.336 for the 599).
To help in the aerodynamics department, an 'Aero Bridge' has been created, which uses the bonnet to create downforce by channeling airflow down the sides of the car. Active Brake Cooling is another innovation, opening up vanes - much like the 458's front splitter - to send air into the brake cooling ducts at high speed.
