Simultaneous post FTW.
I win, ESM just dropped this. http://www.esmracing.com/blog/1759-2/
Well...I still think the Mazda is the only genuinely new/neat looking car. I'm sure the racing will be good but I expected more out of Cadillac.
The new WTR livery is fantastic.

I love how the black is glossy and they integrated the Cadillac emblem style fin, that is the best car on the grid already!
Oooh that Caddy is lookin goooooood Great example of how a simple livery, on the right car, can really go a long way. Can't wait to see Gordon behind the wheel of this thing at Daytona!!
Interesting how tire sizes are nearly equal front-to-rear. Wonder if they were having front grip issues in testing.
Thats the standard sizing for all 2017 P2 and DPi chassis.

I support this. Love it.
So Mazda is just a 2-car factory effort this year, with no others?
It seems that way for now.
All 3 Cadillac's looking awesome!
I'm not sure about the gold on the 5, that used to be yellow.
The Mazda looks so good
That side skirt and splitter on the C7.R are a lot bigger than they were last season.
Now I'm torn between the black on the WTR, and the white on the other two....all 3 look really great in my eyes.
Now I just can't wait to see the Mazda in a full livery.
I thought there was something new about it. I thought I was seeing things when I saw that undertray arrangement on the car. They've been busy in Detroit obviously.
More likely improvements since the regs have not changed since last year (when the new LMGTE regs debuted).
THEY LOOK SO GOOD
So I guess that will mean Ford OP this year?
I was thinking about the fact that those are pretty much the first pictures you can actually tell what the shape of the headlights are.
Only if they have figured out anything. Porsche's debuting a new car though, and BMW has the M6 running like it should now I bet, same for Ferrari. Overall another crazy year ahead.
I'm really liking the Cadillac's in race guise. I also like that they didn't try taking too many cues from their road vehicles as I don't think their design language would have transferred as well as Mazda's.
Dagys got a great shot of the beetle
