Aerodynamics play a vital role in modern cars nowadays more than ever before as efficiency is considered of utmost value. Furthermore, in supercars, aerodynamics have been proven to aid in faster lap times and better cornering as well depending on the design and setup in some cases. But this was not always the case. Back in the day, the founder of Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari, said that aerodynamics is only for people who don't know how to build engines, but he couldn't have been more wrong.

One car that blew up on social media was the Zenvo TSR-S with its multi-axis adjustable rear wing that would move and tilt depending on the speed the car was going and the direction in which it was moving to aid as much as possible in aerodynamics.

The engineers put forward the claim that if the car was making a left-handed turn, the rear left wheel would not be able to supply as much grip due to the forces involved and that is most definitely true. And to amend this, they designed the rear wing to tilt in such a way that it would push the car down to add as much downforce on the rear left wheel (in this case).

However, this might not be the best solution according to further reports and tests as ultimately you would then transfer the problem to the front right wheel thus causing a bigger potential of understeer when making the turn.
