Lord Paul Drayson will be once again entering his Aston Martin Vantage GT2 car. Johnny Cocker will be his co-driver and apparently he has more support from Aston Martin this season.

Looks cool, but would be nicer with a closed cockpit. But a great car, with the Patron livery it would look pretty epic.

I like the all-black, even though it won't race that way. It makes it look kinda mean.

Indeed... This is really too akward, just like 908 and Epsilon Euskadi - talking about purely visual aspects. Of course it's advanced design and so on but the joke about "single seaters with fenders" is just becoming too apparent. I loved the LMP2 Acura though. Unfortunately "no fundamental changes to chassis" in the future (2011-).

ps. Reminder from past: http://images.forum-auto.com/mesimages/ ... icard3.jpg :yuk:

I know this is the most ridiculous comparsion but the front of the Acura reminds me of this:

As the front looks rather 'spiky' to me. Must be the light going into the wing and the colour scheme as well.
