BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo introduces active rear spoiler

BMW 3 Gran Turismo active rear spoilerThe new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is the first BMW fitted with an active rear spoiler. The rear spoiler extends automatically once the car reaches 110 km/h (68 mph) to ensure it retains the traditional BMW dynamic capability at higher speeds. Once extended, the spoiler reduces lift on the rear axle by more than 35 percent, allowing the Gran Turismo to replicate the aerodynamic qualities of the BMW 3 Series Sedan.

If the car’s speed slows below 70 km/h (43 mph), the spoiler automatically retracts, melting back into the car’s trailing edge almost invisibly. If required, the rear spoiler can be extended and retracted manually.
