    The only thing wrong with it really is that the rear wing doesn't suit the back of the car as much as the other WRC cars from this year. Apart from that, it's :tup:

    I think the SunEnergy1 Mercedes-AMG GT3 from the Weathertech Championship is awful. At Daytona it has orange wheels too which was horrendous.

    @GTracer38 I thought this was that thread. Oops! The Mercedes-AMG GT3 is a stunning thing though. Love that car.

    Time for a thread revival?

    The MkV Toyota Supra debuts in the NASCAR Xfinity series today, and I can't help but think that it looks a little quirky compaired to the road car. Looks weird mainly due to how the driver's compartment of the car is mandated by NASCAR.

    Everythings in the wrong place - it's like what your mates face looks like when he stretches a condom over his head.

    Yikes, I'd heard discussions about that car...but hadn't seen one. It's...rough.

    Meet the Maserati Tipo 151, capable of 196mph on the Mulsanne, desperately unstable, unreliable and unlucky, killing "Lucky" Casner.

    The faster she goes the more the front end lifts.

    I'm not sure if somebody has posted about this here before already since I don't have time to backtrack but I just find the front end of this Panoz to be grotesque-looking.

    I've always had a soft spot for the GTR-1, now if you want to talk about a truly ugly Panoz, look no further than the Abruzzi.

    It's probably worthy of a post in the Failures of Motorsport thread as well considering it only entered 3 races, only started 2 of those and the one it did finish they only managed 17th.

    You gotta credit Don for his will to try the unconventional though. It's a shame none of his outside the box creations achieved the success worthy of the effort he put into them. :cheers:

    Well, I'm not forcing anyone to agree with what I have said anyway since we all have our own opinions regarding a subject matter. And that we all have different tastes as well.

    I think those did decently in some series, I want to say Pirelli World Cup or something like that.

    You're probably thinking of the Avezzano GT4, which has had a fair amount of success (and is my favorite Panoz).
