    The least aesthetically pleasing racing car.

    AS a counter point to D-Types post about the best looking cars, what are the worst lookers, the cars that make young children cry just by looking at them

    To start the ball rolling here are a few, I'll post images in the next post (I'll be 15 by then )

    March 711, Eifelland EF1, Ensign N179, Ferrar Spazza Neve (never raced forerunner of the 312T series), Cosworth F1.

    The IMSA series March from the mid-Eighties wasn't eye-candy.

    For me, the Williams FW09 was just wrong. In all honesty, I haven't found many Williams cars to be pleasing to the eye since the FW07C. The FW09 is particularly unattractive, though.

    I'm sure it kept Gitanes happy but this is sheer madness:


    After giving us some pretty cars in the 1970s, NASCAR shafted us with this:



    But for me, the worst looking race car ever was the Chaparral 2J which looked like it had just come out of a box:
    The Old Republic was a stupidly run organisation which deserved to be taken over. All Hail Palpatine!

    I always kind of liked the quirkiness of the Ligier. It's not classically attractive, but neither was Beatrice Dalle.

    The Chapparal? I always thought it would be nice when it was finished. Or was that the Vacuum Cleaner I've got. Easy mistake to make.

    Pictures to match words.

    Those of a nervous disposition should look away now.

    The livery doesn't do it any justice, because the car itself isn't that bad; it would look a lot better in Silk Cut colours, for example....
