What's most interesting about the active aerodynamic's on Ferrari's ultra hypercar, LaFerrari, is the fact that they are nearly invisible. According to Ferrari engineers, a big wing is not necessary for the LaFerrari to generate serious downforce. Instead, they rely on a very subtle spoiler at the rear, in conjunction with moving surfaces underneath the car. When the spoiler is retracted, it is easily overlooked.

The LaFerrari is not the first Ferrari to come with active aeros, but it is the first production road car to do so. The 599 FXX track-only car was the company's first endeavor with adjustable aerodynamics.
