Here are the first pictures of Lotus’s new contender, the E22, which features a double-pronged nose.

Lotus issued the images via its Twitter account after McLaren revealed its MP4-29.

No further information was issued about the new car, which is expected to make its first track appearance at the second pre-season test at Bahrain on February 19th. It bears the logos of PDVSA, who back new driver Pastor Maldonado, and new sponsor Yotaphone.

    A much better nose!

    This actually looks pretty cool, hopefully it actually works and shows up on the grid

    Thought they might have done something more with the livery, but oh well.

      I think the livery is gorgeous (I love Mclaren’s too) but it’s like there’s a competition to see who can design the most ugly nose. I actually feel bad I ever complained about the noses from last year, they were beautiful compared to this.

    ummmm… ok well I don’t hate it. Actually that looks a LOT better than the others so far…. I think..

    Its a shame they couldn’t have a bar at the end of the two forks, that would have made it look nice.

    A much better nose! still allows airflow, and “Fork nose” is much better than “Penis nose”

    Variety! Not being sarcastic, I love the fact there are different solutions! Looks good to me.

    best looking car so far, will be keen to see it in the flesh and not a rendering

  15. petebaldwin (@petebaldwin) said on 24th January 2014, 12:07

    Hang on a sec – those 2 bits on the nose aren’t the same length. The right hand side is longer!? Surely just down to a CAD mistake?
