    I consider current Indycar Dallara spec racers to be among the ugliest ever. Worse, this is from from an Italian designer!

    This example is G Pantano from 2012 Mid-Ohio race.

    Legendary Mini designer Alec Issigonis had the dubious distinction of being involved in the development and design of one the most hideous creations ever seen on a race track, The Fry- Climax with it`s extreme forward driving position, and long prominent D-type tail, was in aesthetic terms, as bad as it gets, with performance to match,

    Possibly the only racing cars that, somehow, manage to be even uglier than the current generation of truly hideous Formula 1 machines.

    I agree. Can someone computer-literate post a picture please?

    And I demand that you apologise to the Jaguar D-Type - the Fry's fin was nothing like a D-Type's!

    Have to admit that thing will take some beating as the king of the uglies. Sort of looks like a 1950's movie space ship from Flash Gordon.
