I don't know if you're trying to say that the Stig thought of actually making a spoiler of just installing one but a lot of people seem to think that the CCX never had a spoiler before it crashed on Top Gear. The CCX has always had a rear spoiler, it just never came on the standard car, it was optional. The Stig just suggested that they should try a car with the optional spoiler.

No, the stig, along with some people at top gear designed a racing pack for the ccx and then the stig wrote to koenigsegg and told them about it, so they agreed to make a special addition for him to try on their test track, or somthing like that, i read it in the top gear magazine ages ago...

You are a fool. >_>

Lotus helped design the Top Gear circuit way back in 2002. The Koenigsegg CCX went out on the SAME TRACK in late 2006, where The Stig almost got killed thanks to the lack of downforce on the CCX. Like Skyline said, the rear wing is entirely optional, because it affects the claimed 249mph top speed. By request, it was sent back to Koenigsegg to fit the wing on, then returned back to the UK for the re-run.

The CCX, back in 2006, was sold WITHOUT a standard spoiler, but every owner had that special wing in stock for them if they chose to fit it, so they could just go to the dealer and it would have been fit with the wing in a matter of hours.

Yes, that was the supposedly "special" spoiler that TG had requested. There was nothing special about it, it was Koenigsegg's own spoiler. But knowing TG, they love to fluff up the myth a little.

@racing_nut: I literally worship Top Gear, and I know my cars through and through. That wing is available on request, and it's not a TG-exclusive.

@corrupter: it may have been at the time, but after the TG incident Koenigsegg decided to make it an optional extra.
