I like the red actually. Because having only red endplates always looked silly to me. Introducing more red to the car makes it seem a little less like an afterthought. It also makes it look less like a cheap rip-off and more like they’re actually trying to do their own thing.
If you go to a website to look at pre-launch leaked pictures, I don’t think you can complain about it, like it’s some kind of spoiler. We didn’t force you to come here and look at these, did we?
I like that the E21 is less Lotus-y. Anyone else notice that aside from the teams web address, I didn’t see the word Lotus featured anywhere on that car. Perhaps, that’s why we’re seeing more red; they’re stepping away from the shenanigans surrounding the name and sponsorship, and getting back to building fast cars. That’s okay in my book.
Bring on the new paint! I want see how fast it goes, then perhaps its true beauty can be perceived.
@russellgould I saw the leaks on Twitter first. I was just checking Twitter after work and saw the images and the comments about the red livery and the stepped nose and wasn’t expecting them.
I was just looking forward to coming home after work and watching the launch with everyone else. It’s so much more fun when you can watch the launch with everyone else and share in the occasion with your fellow fanatics online. These leaks just ruin that a bit for me, but oh well.
