In the development of the upcoming 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, the designers scrutinized every component of the car in order to enhance its track performance. And can you believe that even the iconic Chevrolet bowtie faced audit.
During aerodynamics testing, Chevrolet engineers noticed that the bowtie on the Z/28’s grill was displacing air away from the radiator. This in turn can make an impact on the engine’s cooling. They solved the problem by cutting-off the wheel to the gold fill of the bowtie, leaving the silver outline intact; then – installed the prototype on the grill and retested to see the results.
