After new brakes, a new suspension, removing the roof and windows and replacing them with thin plastic, servicing the engine and putting on new tires (or tyres as they would call them), they were still about eight seconds off the pace of the Evo around the Top Gear track.
Then Jeremy Clarkson said, "Hammond, did you say you bought a spoiler the other day?"
"Well, at a charity auction, yes."
"What type of one?"
"A Formula 1 cars', actually."
Yep. That's the rear wing off a SuperAguri F1 car.
It added a second to the time.
Seems appropriate, that.

Of course, one of the reasons it works for F1 cars is that they are rear-wheel drive. The minivan wasn't.

A wing on a minivan...that just doesn't look right.
