That is so ugly it actually, genuinely, hurts my eyes to look at it - looks like some massive fat guy sat on the bonnet of an origami racing car... Hit by the ugly stick is one thing, but this poor thing's been bludgeoned to death with it...

Makes the Hovis Hauler look like a supermodel !!!

True. As I've said before I like the looks of the Hovis Hauler - I am weird though.

I think it would be helped tremendously by a better colour scheme! That vomit orange is truly appalling. Gunmetal grey or BRG (and NOT that frankly ridiculous 2-tone design either) would improve it.

Certainly will never compete with a Ford GT40 for looks, will it?

There was a showroom down the road from where I used to work who had a GT40 in there. Was painted in mother of pearl .

But even the Gt will never compete with the real GT40 for looks. And- my Dad drove a real GT40 once. But that Weber is seriously ugly. And an aerodynamic disaster- a flat front, FFS. We left those behind after the 60s. Possibly improve grip, though.

On my quick perusal, couldn't find a pic of an original GT40 - thanks for yours

Agree that the original is better, however this is one of the few times where a 'successor brand' actually warrants the name, at least for looks! No idea about performance or handling on the newer one?

This may be heresy, and I accept there is very little in it. But I much prefer the new GT.
