FYI, that car was purpose built to have no purpose and be the ultimate rice for a T-Mobile commercial. And to answer all your questions, no.

Nope, I got as close as I could. They don't have 5' roof spoilers either, how unrealistic.

lol D-Lew, that looks pretty close to it lol! I agree it's complete crap that EA doesn't offer roof spoilers cause how are suppose to fight those updrafts?! I think it's obvious that a rear spoiler does not provide enough downforce! And seriously no over-sized hoodscoop? EA = fail

Rear spoilers are only functional at 150mph+ and on rear wheel drive cars. The chances of you getting up to 150 here is pretty slim.

So, every car you see on the street with a spoiler is just for show. I do admit, there are a lot of cars that look better with a FACTORY STYLE SPOILER, not one of those 4 foot high aluminum siding wings.

On a front wheel drive car, you would need a diffuser, like fins, slats to guide the air straight off the back of the car and keep the car in a straight line.

How about these?
