MP4-27 At Circuit de Catalunya

It’s nice to see a diamond in the rough. Despite the rule changes, McLaren have built a very good looking car.

  1. i’d hardly call any of the modern era f1 cars beautiful. the mclaren just seems unchanged from last year, which is nice. although i still prefer the current era over the cars from the downforce years (2000’s to 2008).

    1. I use the word beautiful more as a contrast between the MP4-27 and the rest of the cars on the grid for 2012. The step-nose is pretty hideous and funny enough, Ferrari have managed to make it look the worst.

      My favorite era is the late 80’s into the early 90’s. The cars were just so much simpler, from a design perspective.
