English term or phrase: Wind funnel
Is this similar to a Wind tunnel (to test aerodynamics?)
Dito

embudo eólico
Explanation:
This would be "wind funnel" which might be quite different if there is not an error in the original; for instance a pass in mountains through which a strong wind funnels through; often used for installation of wind turbines to use wind energy "energía eólica" for electric generation. Would that fit the context (if there is one)?

Sorry, my mistake. I realised after I sent it that it was one of the wrong options of a multiple choice question!
Many thanks

Tolva aerodinamica (de viento)


Explanation:
Funnel is a tolva, within automotive context it would probably be a spoiler or an aerodynamic wing of some sort.

Hope it helps
