A large wing tacked to the decklid of a bold-looking car will turn some heads. It’s a polarizing choice—whether you love the look or hate it, some people just want their cars to get noticed, and these 10 cool cars with wings show that an enormous wing will usually accomplish that goal.
That said, wings actually do serve a purpose on high-horsepower cars, and contrary to popular belief, wings and spoilers accomplish slightly different effects. A spoiler manipulates the airflow around the car, reducing wind resistance. On the other hand, a large, flat wing also manipulates airflow, but it’s supposed to increase the wind resistance over a specific part of the car—generally, it’s to improve the back wheels’ traction. Let’s take a look at some powerful production cars that were designed to take advantage of a prominent rear wing.
