At the centre two pylons are combined with a deflector which channels air towards the flat underbody. The broad, low tail is also dominated by aerodynamic solutions, including an innovative blown spoiler which generates downforce without increasing drag. This works in conjunction with an aggressive ramp angle for the diffuser which features active flaps. The greater height required for the diffuser was achieved by repositioning the exhaust tailpipes. The circular LED tail lights have also been redesigned.

The front bumper is completely redesigned, with three large air intakes to keep the nose of the car glued to the surface at high speeds and enhance its aggressive look. On the sides, the designers created large air intakes above the rear wheels and triangular area around the door handles, a tribute to the original 308 GTB from 1975.
