Your Favorite or Interesting Race Car Livery

Recommended Posts

Post one of your favorite or an interesting race car livery.  To kick things off the Crocodile Audi from a few years ago. The jumping fish at the air intakes is classic.

Tom's Vett is probably my most memorable funny car. But the Nitro Fish cars are probably some of the wilder ones out there.

I like the early BMW Art Cars, with this being the first and best known - namely the Alexander Calder CSL.

Someone build that car over on the now debunked eScale site years ago. They made their own decals, the model turned out awesome.

...a little over the top, but the F1 BMW/Benetton B186's as they appeared at Detroit was certainly memorable...

...also of interest might be the Ligier JS39 Art Car livery seen at the Australian Grand Prix to close out the 1993 season.  As was typical in period, the title sponsor was Gitanes, while short of viewing the car from a slight distance to make out the lettering entire, hard it was at first glance to strictly make out what was being telegraphed in a commercial sense.

Agree

Understated, clean and classy

In the outdoor advertising business (which is essentially what we're talking about here), less is more, and that's why I like this. Bold, instantly defined and sponsor pleasing.

The Linkin Park/320 Change Direction AMG GT entered by Gruppe M Racing at the 2017 FIA GT World Cup race in Macau.  320 Change Direction is a mental health/suicide awareness organization run by Chester Bennington's wife.  Irony...or perhaps a bittersweet twist of fate Chester never got to see the car run that race.
