That actually might be the worst livery ever.
Rare progress shot:
Reminds me of that infamous picture of the Corvette-bumpered pickup that has a picture of itself airbrushed on the tailgate. I'm hoping that's just an "ironic" placeholder until they can secure a proper sponsorship.
Oh no but it's art!/s
It looks like they got someone off the street who had never played Real Racing 3 before and had no concept of racing liveries, then gave them 5 minutes to learn the livery editor and design something.
It's like BMW realised they had promised an art car and only remembered about it yesterday.
Back in the late '90s pretty much everyone thought this was a terrible looking car. The original version had solid blue patches with straight edges (couldn't find a clear picture of it though), which made it look like an old beater with mismatched doors. Plus the split sponsor on the hood and cluttered side panels looked really out of place in a field where even the backmarkers would have one name covering all the major areas and maybe a secondary on the decklid. It stood out to be sure, but for the wrong reasons.
For its time, it was definitely one of the worst liveries out there.
I dunno, I kinda like the colors on that one... reminds me of toy cars I had as a kid, as well.
But my experience with mismatched beater cars is restricted to GTA, so I don't see it as trashy as others would.
Nascar has had a lot of hideous ones over the years. Travis Pastrana's cars seem to attract it though.
The unfortunate side effect of moving from airbrushing and decals to full vinyl wraps. Sure it's quicker and less expensive, but... well, it is possible to have too much creative freedom.
As a Mayfield fan, I take exception to that. Some people may think his Fingerhut car was worse though.
I don't know. Pink seemed to be an unlikely, but less rare theme than one might think back in the 90's. Take the Country Time and Exide cars for example. Personally, I kind of like them for some reason...
Ran by Tony Stewart at Dover in October of this year.
No it's not, Cartman proved it works either way. So do many people on a daily basis, typically journalist.
I give this one a pass....Nature's Bakery Brownies are fantastic!
The silver hurts my eyes!
I never really had a problem with using pink on race cars, since it's usually offset by equal amounts of black like the Fingerhut and Exide cars. And in the case of the 51 car it works because hey, who doesn't like pink lemonade?
I don't know why, but pink lemonade seems to taste better.
I think that looks fantastic.
I'd like it a bit more if the silver were white instead, but that's just me. I wouldn't say that's a bad livery at all, really.
I think the silver works, it's more the green on the front for me.
Okay, a slight diversion here.
1998 Honda Accord BTCC. Brilliant, no question.
But then... I was playing GT2 and came across this. It's a racing car which mercifully did not exist; a US Accord wagon with the BTCC livery which makes it look like the actual BTCC car but with massive head swelling.
Thats a Japanese Market accord (6th gen Accord was split into 3 models for Europe, Japan and the rest of the world which the US used).
You can do the same with the Primera Wagon as well.
So, the Pennzoil livery is pretty iconic, right? Simple yellow with thin black stripes, understated but easily recognized. Shouldn't be possible to screw that up, yeah?
...oh. Never mind.
Good grief, how could they mess up that livery so badly... here's another abomination. This top pic is a diecast, the only one I could find of the real car didn't show how bad it looks.
I don't think that looks too bad myself.
This on the other hand...
An abomination upon thy eyes.
Has there actually ever been a car/livery where the painted on teeth looked good on?
The "Bitten & Hisses" Jordans from the late 1990s. The nose was painted to look like a snake head, with the uprights connecting the nose to the wing painted to resemble snake fangs.
