Airflow video

Not sure if anyone saw this on Acura's site. Cool airflow video.

Great find! I didn't actually know how the airflow worked until now. Interesting to see where the air goes to cool down the engines. Always thought those extra vents behind the door was for decoration, didn't know it was there for a purpose.

Super cool how they put you in the flow, seeing exactly how it flows not just from the outside seeing the entire vehicle but being with the air flow.

Very cool. Love seeing these aerodynamics and airflow videos. It puts something into view that is hard to understand when just looking at the vehicle or getting a drag coefficient number.

The large amount of vents was designed to maximize cooling of its 10 heat exchangers which includes the 3 engine radiators. That's a lot of heat to disperse and they have to reduce drag while doing so.

How does the air from the front air intake get move upwards under the hood to come out from the hood vent? I only saw it going through the sir filters in the video before exiting through the top but there doesn't seen to be anything specifically redirecting the airflow.
