Ben Sopra-like wing

Anyone know or installed a frame mounted rear wing similar to the Ben Sopra GTR wing? Would like a functional wing for the rear, and although hatch mounted wings work

Default Ben Sopra-like wing

Anyone know or installed a frame mounted rear wing similar to the Ben Sopra GTR wing? Would like a functional wing for the rear, and although hatch mounted wings work well, I think this type of setup on the Z would look sick . . .

I hope that's mounted on the frame and not the bumper.

Well I'm sure it isn't for everyone.... But I personally love the race inspired look it has.... Anyone seen or have this design for their Z?

i saw someone with something like that on their 370z. i was driving my fit with the wife and i see a 370z (very scarce in my area) i was like 'woo~!' then i see the wing and im like 'boo~'

wife cracked up cause she was about to say something nice about the car since it was a 370Z that i luv.

i suppose on the track it would be ok.

That's kinda like it haha but definitely not pretty.... For a truly functional wing, frame mounted is the best, but with an eye for aesthetics as well, it looks like I'll be going with a hatch mounted solution
