The spoiler is purely for show, I doubt it adds any measurable down force. And even if it did, it wouldn't be for the purpose of putting power down at the speeds it would you would have to operate for it to make a difference, rather, it'd likely be for high-speed stability (like most road cars). If the Civic made enough power in the first place. I believe the Gallardo has a somewhat sculpted underbody to limit lift like most exotics these days. I'm curious, would anybody take a Gallardo over an F430? Or even a 360 Modena for that matter?
