    A Chaparral CanAm car, I believe? It does look a bit like one of those weird contraptions Edd China builds (he's the guy behind such oddities as the driveable bed, in case you don't know)

    I often find the mid-70s F1 cars a bit... in a way hideous, but more like curious. I mean it was an early stage of aerodynamics development in F1, but the huge airboxes and some of the boxy wings make you wonder, what DID they really think of aerodynamics back then...

    I'm late to the party so not sure if this has been suggested. But the Peugeot 307cc rally cars of the mid 00s were disgusting. From an aesthetic point of view, using the the hatchback would have been far better. They raced in the BTCC around the same time and weren't offensive to the eye.

    In reality the huge airboxes didn't really have much to do with aero or engine performance, they were simply there to provide sponsors a huge sign board

    The Ligier JS5 is the perfect example
