Caterham CT01 images revealed early

2012 F1 cars

The first pictures of the Caterham CT01 have appeared ahead of its official publication tomorrow.

Images taken from the current issue of F1 Racing have been posted online.

Caterham later issued an official image of the new car. The CT01’s distinctive stepped nose is a consequence of new rules aimed at lowering the noses of the cars.

    I’ll just be happy to see all the cars racing.

    Ugly isn’t even the word to describe this monstrosity. However some seventies cars were even uglier IMO. So let’s stay positive and believe there are better times ahead.

    Why are they showing No 20 on the car (image)?

    Personally, the main thing that struck mother than the nose, was the level of detail on the front wing… Looks like Caterham has a bigger aero budget than last year.

    when i heard “low noses for 2012″ i was hoping for something like the great williams fw14b (contender best looking f1 car of all time). was it 2009 people were last outraged by ugly cars? i’m thinking of you, renault. before that, it was years of hideous wiglets, flip-flaps and doo-dads. very few recent cars in any category have been pleasing to the eye – the peugeot 908 and the new toyota, but definitely not the audis.

    Nice livery, I especially Luke the numbers.

    The nose does look really, really bizarre. Just no fluidity to the CT01.

    Looking forward to seeing if this will be an ongoing trend.

    Shame it doesn’t have mudguards, like a Caterham 7.
    Aren’t they allowed in F1?!
