No Spoilers: Aston Martin’s “Aeroblade” Feature Provides Downforce Without the Tail – Core77

Back in the ’80s, spoilers on performance cars were the thing. But now they look kind of crass and they spoil, for lack of a better word, the visual lines of the car.

Aston Martin’s design team has thus designed their DB11 with an “aeroblade” feature: Air gets sucked into vents aft of the rear passenger windows, then shoots out of a vent in the deck lid, providing downforce without requiring that absurd whale tail.
