Vorsteiner Tuning Program for Mclaren MP-4
Vorsteiner's latest release of the striking McLaren MP4-VX marks our entry into the revered McLaren tuning world wîth their new clay modeling and 3D digital rendering program.
In a religious effort to stay true to the McLaren brand, the designers kept as many of the existing MP4 body lines intact as possible while enhancing the original design to an edgier and more aggressive form. The designers also took into account everyday driveability and functionality wîth each body part and made great effort to maximize ground clearance while improving overall aerodynamics and appearance.
The MP4-VX program also features our latest in one-piece aluminum forged wheel technology. The wheels were engineered to be specifically load rated for the weight of this McLaren so that weight savings could be maximized during the CNC milling process without any compromises in safety. The new wheels are 20x9J and 21x12J in size wîth 245/25/20 and 325/30/21 tire dimensions to keep the car well planted around corners.
The MP4-VX program is composed of:
• Carbon Fiber Front Bumper wîth dual air duct system and side ventilation louvers
• Carbon Fiber Add-On Front Spoiler
• Carbon Fiber Rear Bumper wîth dual ventilation louvers & central vent opening
• Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser wîth integrated Dual Diffuser Tunnels
• 4 Piece Carbon Fiber Side Skirt blade wîth floating front fin element
| ||Vital Stats|
Starting at the front, the McLaren MP4-VX showcases a completely redesigned nose made entirely out of the latest dry carbon fiber pre-preg autoclave technology. This new front end consists of a full replacement bumper cover wîth features such as a completely redesigned air ducting system, side vent elements and a separate front spoiler that aids in increasing front end downforce. The bumpers, like all Vorsteiner original products, utilize existing factory mounting hardware and each piece is 100% reversible if the vehicle ever needs to be returned back to its stock form.
The most visually striking component of the MP4-VX kit is undoubtedly the replacement carbon fiber rear bumper cover and rear diffuser element. The optical carbon fiber rear bumper also features two ventilation louvers on the side and one in the center to assist wîth heat dissipation from the engine and exhaust. The new carbon and kevlar reinforced composite rear diffuser features race inspired tunnels to further improve airflow and keep the rear end planted against the road surface wîth larger mesh perimeter opening to further assist in cooling the engine temperature.
Lastly, the vehicle receives improved airflow dynamics wîth our four-piece carbon fiber side blade elements, giving the vehicle a lower and more aggressive stance while improving downforce at high speeds.Source - Vorsteiner
