Yes, but it’s seriously well hung. ;-p

+1 it seems that the caterham has a full erection while the toro roso has half chub

That is hideous. Not only the nose, but the clunky boxy shape, the fat sides and what happened to the lovely yellow highlights? The front wing mounting at least seems quite original.

Ugliest so far for sure! However, it is now all green and black/white. Good on them for that!

Whats with those side pods. We’ve come to expect tight and tighter packages as the years have gone on, with airflow around the pod and into the back end, whats been described as a coke bottle.
Here though its almost block like, reminding me strongly of a car from the early 90′s.

Nice to finally see the car, the front is not a pretty sight but I guess it’s made that way to fit the new regulations, however the rest of the car is stunning incuding the colour.
Best wishes to Marcus and Kamui and the rest of the Caterham team from Marcus hometown, Kumla/Sweden.

In North Korea, the designer of that Caterham nose would be taken outside and quite rightly shot.

C’mon guys, you gotta give them credit for trying. You’d expect a team with their budget to have the most average looking car. It may be ugly, but it’s radical and that’s what F1 should be about.

Most of the cars so far (except the Ferrari & Merc) have made me laugh.
This one makes me cringe

Well, it’s sort of been done before:

Oh dear – this new Caterham is really horrible to look at. Still – if it’s a winning design, then it’ll probably grow on me. Big IF though. GO KAUMI !!

As a Marussia fan, and as someone who admires aesthetic beauty I feel crazy saying this but I actually kind of like the car.. sort of… I kind of like the upper part of the nose, I just wish the ‘impact structure’ wasn’t round though.. Seeing as it bears a resemblance to something.
