To ensure adequate ventilation for the power plant, the new front wing has integral air outlet openings which with their three chrome ribs and the indicators are reminiscent of the mouth of a shark.Adequate air exchange is essential not only in the anterior part of the vehicle to develop its full potential. The same principle applies to the rear.

Therefore, in the version of Street voltage air ducts for the rear brakes have been incorporated into the striking side skirts. The side skirts which give the vehicle its elongated appearance of the smooth transition to the rear, as the street version of tension in relation to the concept car is still very sporting but slightly less lavish.The rear skirt houses not only the solid steel exhaust system chrome steel with two outputs Sport trim, but also a carbon diffuser.Another highlight at the rear of the street version of the tension is the trunk lid, which was reserved for stress. However, his style changed to give the back of the BMW 6 series of "finishing touches", so the new boot lid is now a firm part of the conversion of the Street version.
