    I find it funny that this photo is from Forza Horizon 3 and people would've hardly noticed.

    Benetton B201

    One of the worst cars to grace a Formula One circuit, and it was in fact Benetton's last, but the B201 had a lovely shade of blue and eliminated the clunkiness of the 1996-2000 cars which had white and green unevenly slapped onto it.

    The end season car has some changes which spoil it but this early season picture looks great.

    The more I looked into it, it turns out to be the tobacco livery vs non-tobacco livery.

    I like the tobacco livery with the Mild Seven and blue front wing on it like the original picture and this one:

    Much better without the green and white of the previous cars.

    The non-tobacco livery car just isn't quite as nice.

    While searching for livery ideas for Gran Turismo Sport's livery editor, I came across a race team in the Bristish GT series called Barwell Motorsport. And they have some of the best schemes I've ever seen on a GT car.

    I believe those can be found in Project Cars 2 as well.

    I can't disagree more. The Huracan is the only car where the Demon Tweeks livery works, and it works incredibly.

    On the subject of retro Supercars liveries. Might as well throw this one in here too.

    I don't follow IndyCar as much as I would like and this is actually the first time I
    see this Andretti Autosport Relay-liveried Honda. What amazing colors, really like this one.

    Definitely one of my favorite liveries on a racing car along with the Arrows A20 - A23 cars during
    the late 90s and early 00s. The current McLaren MCL33 looks nice, too.
    It's the orange colors that I find to be exquisite.

    This thread could use more JGTC. Here’s the 1999 Supra Esso Ultron “Tiger” livery.

    Not a "Best Livery Ever" but a unique entry and this is a livery thread:

    1997 RAC Tourist Trophy Renault Laguna

    The normal 1997 BTCC Laguna but with a Sega sponsor on the bonnet. This livery only raced once. It also reflected Menu and Plato's positions in the 1997 championship; the only time a yellow Laguna wore #1.

    Compare with the regular Laguna that year:

    I find it kind of ironic that the Laguna would be the cover star and (arguably) main rival of the first TOCA game... which wasn't released on the Sega Saturn, but on it's competitor instead.

    Let's face it, the Saturn wouldn't have been able to handle SIXTEEN CARS and 8 different bodies.

    This is the advanced sports car that famously defeated Phil Hill's Ferrari 412 MI at Riverside.

    This is the right-hand drive Mk II version, racing successfully into the mid-sixties.

    At first I didn't like the Gazoo Racing livery that much, but now that it's on everything, it has really grown on me

    I think the liveries of XANAVI-NISMO and Marlboro F1 look cool, probably because red is my favorite color.

    I Guess it's all subjective as to your age and preference . But my choices would be ...
    Mk1 Lotus Cortina
    MK2 Escort Rothmans
    RS500 Texaco
    And to break the ford vibe
    Jordan F1 Peugeot snake

    Their livery design aren't that flashy, which makes me think they're cool enough IMHO.

    Absolute Racing have had nice looking liveries over the years. Think this one would have to be up there with their best.

    I was looking at some old Sierra pictures and whilst there were some not-so-good-looking Sierras, the simplicity of some of the liveries is just beautiful.

    General Livery Question

    The Jordan 196 is famous for being a rather nice gold B&H creation but it actually raced in a bile-mustard yellow for the first few races.

    Before:

    [​IMG]

    After:

    [​IMG]

    It was changed to gold specifically to make it look better on television. Are there any other such examples of a, uh... vain redesign to liveries?
