I know it polarises people but the large rear wing on the Countach really destroys it for me.  I remember at the time trying to find a road test where it was tested with, and without, but was never able to come up with anything.  The cars just seem so pure without it.

I don't mind the wing on the F40/F50, but the ones they stick on cars like the 355CH leave me cold.

I love my car. Buy your own

I like the wing, or at least I don't dislike it.

But Countach tend to understeer like most road cars when pushed so the wing is kind if pointless for that.... it makes it worse.

But it improves high speed stability and heavy braking so if it saves a few from having crashes thats fine by me.

I watched a periscopo crash at brands hatch. A wing may have helped. Avoid or reduce the crash.

The car had had speakers set into the footwell at the expense of the chassis braces that were supposed to be there..... sigh......

Those wipers would have been interesting.
