Who makes this rear diffuser?

I thought it was Hamann, but the side CF looks different (flush to the car) than the other pics I have seen where the Hamann sides look almost like winglets.

Yeah, I'm an idiot. Worked all night and spotted that diffuser while on Active Auto's site. For some reason when I looked at that I saw 2 center splitters between the tips. Scary what happens when the human body doesn't get enough rest.

Guess it was just wishfull thinking that someone made a diffuser that married the flush look of the VRS w/ the multiple splitters of the Hamann.

Yes, but I what I meant was the design of the Hamann in terms of the # of fins between the pipes (2 in the center)m but without the chunky side pieces of the Hamann. Hell, I'd love if someone made a Type 2 Hamann, but I doubt that very much.

I just like how the Hamann reminds me of the Scuderia rear diffuser.
