    Guys - can anyone enlighten me on this one? I just don't get it. I pulled this pic from the exotic car thread... there's got to be a function for this spoiler on the front of the car, right? bc it really looks... unfortunately... stupid. But with a car like this rarely do you see someone do something that seems so... well u get the idea. So PLEASE enlighten me as to the function of this so that I may better understand... :ugh:

    Countach Flight zero-zero six niner, you are cleared for takeoff...

    It looks ridiculous, and you would have to be half-retarded to not be able to find any other way of increasing downforce on that car without a 747 wing on the front of it.

    yes, now look again yourself....

    could they put a front splitter like that below the lip of the front bar on a road car?

    Note the placement of the wings and the purpose for which each car was made.
