Jaguar alegedly discovered downforce by accident back in the early '60s.
When the low drag E Type was built, the back end was too low and grounded when they tried to get it onto a transporter, so they made the swept up back underside to give clearance with the result that they created downforce, which they could only measure in a crude way via rolling suspension measurements.
