The spoiler did angle down too, I'm sure I've got a picture of it somewhere I'll go have a dig.
That's pretty typical of trailing vortex direction - 99 per cent of cars develop lift. However, it's pretty rare to be able to see it so clearly in the rear vision mirror.

I had a look for some pics of the spoiler but wasn't sure precisely which one it was, so I'd be interested.
