Watch the 2017 Ford GT Deploy its Active Rear Spoiler in Forza 6

-We already knew the 2017 Ford GT would use an active rear spoiler, and while we could guess at how it would function based on Ford’s description and the needs of a supercar like this, we haven’t yet seen it deploy in real life. And then this Forza Motorsport 6 video comes along. Since Forza builds its in-game models by meticulously detailing their real-life counterparts, down to small functional details like the behavior of the rear wing, assume this is an exacting preview of how the real GT’s wing will function.

It’s meant to homologate a competition version that will run at Le Mans next year in the GTE class. Now enjoy the clip:
