Porsche 911 Turbo

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.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

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.

McLaren Senna

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.

Ruf CTR2 Sport

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.

Pagani Huayra

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.

Porsche Panamera

Cool new looks and a host of updated powertrains aren't the only things special about the latest Panamera. Its wing, which stays flush with the rear hatch when not in use, folds out when deployed, creating more surface area for air to push down on. Also, it looks really cool in action.

Ferrari F40

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.

2017 Ford GT

In addition to looking cool as hell, the Ford GT's active rear wing generates real downforce and is also used as an airbrake. When you call up Track Mode, the GT's ride height drops and the rear wing is raised to its highest position, as seen here.

1985 Lamborghini Countach LP500S

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.

1970 Plymouth Superbird/Dodge Daytona

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.

1992 Ford Escort Cosworth

For those who feel rear visibility is overrated, there's the Ford Escort Cosworth. The homologation road car for Ford's early-1990s rally car had a fantastic podium-mounted rear wing designed by none other than current Jaguar design boss Ian Callum.

1993 Toyota Supra

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.

1998 Subaru Impreza 22B-STi

The big wing that's a mainstay on the Subaru WRX STI first appeared with the legendary 22B. This might be the best-looking car to ever come from STI, with its big fender flares, gold wheels, pink badge and of course, that wing.

1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II

The ultimate iteration of Mercedes-Benz's M3-fighting, Cosworth-powered 190E 2.5-16 had a hell of a wing. This was before Mercedes' days of AMGing everything, so the Evolution II's wing was spectacularly out of character for the luxury carmaker.

1972 BMW 3.0 CSL

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.

<p>The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is an absolute monster. It makes 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque out of its 6.2-liter supercharged LT4, and in the right hands, <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/videos/a27587/watch-a-stock-corvette-z06-run-a-1041-second-quarter-mile/" target="_blank">it can run a sub-10.5-second quarter mile</a>. It also sounds absolutely devilish.</p>
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The spoiler on the newest Corvette Z06 might not look like much to the untrained eye, but this is straight out of the world of motorsports. It generates a serious amount of downforce, especially when you take a drill to your $80,000 Corvette to put the adjustable Gurney flap to full use.
