The only 935 that ever approached 230mph was Moby Dick with supposedly an honest 225mph. That car was a much more aerodynamic longtail version of the "standard" 935s of their day.
As far as aerodynamics and wings are concerned, I still get a chuckle out of the early LP400S Countach, 181mph sans wing, 165mph with optional $5000 wing.
Bello's car is in a league of its own at the moment and let us not forget that its is no lightweight. I wonder what it could do stripped down. Blackbirds car is a beauty, but top end it would never stand up to Bello's low profile missile given identical horsepower. And since Bello can break 160mph in the quarter, traction above those speeds does not seem to be that much of a problem.
