When Ferrari teamed up with Pininfarina to design the F40 supercar, they could not have known how the public would respond to the car's iconic basket handle wing, a styling touch that would go on to inspire so many other designers and sports car tuners. This wing really completes the look of this magnificent car; it would be difficult to imagine it having the same impact with a different style of spoiler.

The Ferrari F40 was, in its time, the most remarkable supercar on the planet. Not the best, mind you, but the most remarked upon, dreamt about, desired, etc. In large part due to the silhouette created by that fantastic wing.
