Full-Scale Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel

HORIBA MIRA operates the UK’s only full-scale aerodynamic wind tunnel.

The facility is primarily designed for automotive / motorsport product development and provides a repeatable, cost-effective solution for the aerodynamic test and development for a wide range of vehicles.

Aerodynamic benchmark data for some of the world’s most iconic cars and light commercial vehicles can be purchased through our website here

The wind tunnel is also used for testing a variety of non-automotive products that require safety testing under extreme wind speeds such as:

  • Street furniture
  • UAVs / drones
  • Antennas / satellite dishes
  • Wind turbines
  • Civil structures
  • Windows and greenhouses
  • Liferafts

The large facility is also a great location for filming purposes/events and has been used for a wide range of activities including:

  • TV shows
  • Adverts
  • Promotional videos
  • Documentaries
  • Music videos

All tests are carried out in a safe environment and customers receive a fully confidential service. On-site catering facilities are also available. 

If you’re looking to test or film in environmental conditions such as snow, rain, heat or humidity (as well as wind) then check out our climatic wind tunnel facilities.
