Spoiler Alert: The Zenvo TSR-S Rear Wing Is Bonkers

Spoiler Alert: The Zenvo TSR-S Rear Wing Is Bonkers
These days, you can find spoilers on everything from a McLaren 720S to a Toyota Camry TRD. These rear wings can be simply decorative, or add a significant amount of downforce. Many supercars even feature active spoilers which can raise or lower depending on their speed, but I’ve never seen an active wing that’s quite as amazing as the one on the Zenvo TSR-S.

While I’m not sure that any paint job is ever as good as the factory one, I have to say I’m quite impressed by the work that Mijares did to this Lamborghini.

Watch a McLaren Senna Do Donuts and Burnouts

Watch a McLaren Senna Do Donuts and Burnouts
The McLaren Senna is one of today’s ultimate supercars. Not only does it pack a mid-mounted 789 horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine, but it’s got the kind of aerodynamic elements normally reserved for track-only race cars. It’s also about a million bucks, and the kind of car you expect to see either meandering slowly down the streets of Monaco by some billionaire, or perhaps taking a few hot laps around the Nürburgring.
