"At 155 mph, the Senna generates a combined 1,764 pounds of downforce (59 percent of the car's static weight) from both its rear wing and the active front elements that balance it."

EDIT: this post not meant as a contradiction of the OP. Just amplification with a pic, article, and the quote about how they adapted to the lift the body produced.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
