Haha I wish we were!!! Shaving sponsorship is very lucrative!!

Yes to put the diffuser in we have removed the boot floor, however the tank position can remain in place as it's actually quite high.

Two Subaru fibreglass scoops cut and shut, so my ITB's can feed nearly 7 litres at 7.5K, would rather have not but form over function, you can see my modded diff overloading the slicks nicely here though! smile

Looks like the Red Barron's plane wings !
In all seriousness though if someone wanted a rear diffuser wouldnt you have to cut into the boot space and potentially move the fuel tank?

Saw an interesting light blue 51 plate speed 6 cerbera at Neil Garners yesterday.

Wheels and door mirrors have been hydro dipped with a carbon print, as have the new light pods.
Jaguar type F black/carbon bonnet vents and aero type catches at the rear of the bonnet.

Apparently the airbox is all carbon dipped as well.

I am putting the air boxes on my 4.2 (now a 4.5) Cerbera to get carbon dipped tomorrow, I have seen a few examples of carbon dipping and it looks really good. I will post up a few pictures when it is done.

Interesting - keeping the 4.2 throttle bodies and fuel rail?

Hi, the car was converted at Austec Racing by the previous owner but I think it is fine to run the 4.2 fuel rail and intake on a conversion from 4.2 to 4.5. 10,00 miles since conversion with no issues.

Do report back after fitting on how that addition to the rear aero affects the car's handling under provocation - does it give you more rear end grip, or just bugger things up?

I ask in all sincerity, because one sees some Porsche 911s with no rear aero, and other 911s (think GT3 or race models) with an extended family sized picnic table on the back. What of course I don't know is what other changes Porsche (who I do hold in high esteem) make to their cars when fitting big rear aero as standard? Flat floors, canards (other breeds of water birds are available), ground effects, front splitters? They must surely do something, as the standard wingless 911 is a well balanced car, so logic says that adding rear downforce would upset the balance of the car.

I have only seen a rear wing on one Chimaera, but to be fair that car had a lot of front downforce added as well, as you can see below. There is a rear wing on this car - trust me - they had removed the boot lid when i took this photo, and I was only interested in the front splitter etc anyway. I would like to add downforce to my car, but only if it didn't muck things up.

Aero makes so much difference! As long as you get it working for you and not against you.

It's got a front splitter too so should be equal front to back but this isn't going to be a race car like the yellow racing Cerbera it's more of a race car look but should still function ok??

Hopefully, if you have balanced it up. You will soon find out!
I do like the look, and you see similar shaped rear spoilers on later cars like Tuscan S and Sagaris models, so presumably it should work well

You’d probably just add a tad of rear ride height so when the air pressure presses down the car still stays balanced. I think you have to start with the front and make sure you have an effective splitter that funnels air away rather than under the car.
All guess work but as F1 people point out it has little effect under 60 mph so you still require good mechanical grip but at higher speeds it should plant the car better if your calculations are correct.

I used to think the Sagaris spoiler looked a bit daft - what do I know!
