Like all car enthusiasts, we love a big rear wing. Some of these generate real downforce, others are for show, but all are fantastic. Here are some of the best, according to you.
Early 911 Turbos came with a massive flat "whale tail" wing out back that looked like a table-top you could eat off of. In addition to being functional, it's also super cool-looking.
Honda's Type R models have always been a little bit over the top, but the newest Civic Type R might be the craziest of the bunch. That massive rear wing rounds off an aggressive design scheme that translates through the whole body.
The hardcore track-ready Aventador SVJ was just recently unveiled, but thanks to that wild wing out back, we think it deserves to be on this list. It has an interesting shape, mounted near the center of the car and stretching out to either edge for maximum aero efficiency.
Not everyone agrees on the Senna's polarizing looks, but there's no denying the coolness of its wing. It towers over the rear of the car, acting as an aero brake when the driver wants to slow down.
Instead of using a whale tail like a normal turbocharged Porsche would, Ruf decided to make a wing of its own. It's a singular arc that stretches over the rear engine cover, and looks stunning.
One of the Huayra's coolest design features is its four individual active aero pieces. Each rises and falls as the car corners and changes speed, giving the car optimal downforce no matter the situation.
The F40 is one of the most iconic Ferraris out there, thanks in part to its stunning looks. The car is proportioned perfectly with a squared-off rear wing that rises directly from the edges of the car, giving it a seriously purposeful stance.
Leave it to Christian von Koenigsegg and his cohorts to come up with a truly crazy active rear wing for its One:1 hypercar. The is top-mounted to create more downforce–a technology that's borrowed from today's quickest race cars.
A big wing on the back of a Lamborghini Countach was such a popular aftermarket modification, the company began offering it as a factory option in the mid-1980s. All it does is add weight and increase drag, but a Countach doesn't look right without one.
Porsche's hottest 911s have always had great spoilers, a tradition that continues today with the GT3 RS. The 993 GT2 took the classic "whale tail" design to an extreme.
Mopar wanted to dominate NASCAR in 1970, so they devised the be-winged Superbird and Daytona to bring some serious downforce to the oval. To race these cars, Plymouth and Dodge had to build road-going versions as well, which became some of the wildest muscle cars ever.
It's only suitable that one of the wildest cars to come from Toyota sports an equally wild rear wing. Though it looks amazing, the Supra's rear wing isn't just for show: At speed, it actually generates downforce.
The Dodge Viper ACR is a GT race car that Dodge somehow convinced regulators to allow on the street. As such, it comes with an enormous rear wing that generates a similarly enormous amount of downforce.
Oh yes, the mighty "Batmobile." BMW built a handful road-going versions of the 3.0 CSL that profoundly dominated touring car racing in the 1970s, complete with this amazing wing. It looks so wrong and so right on this otherwise understated BMW grand tourer.
