    Waiting for the Hyper-car class to possibly produce some good looking machinery (if they’ll ever race cause of the virus), which are your favourite looking cars to have ever raced at Le Mans? Let’s see which one gets the most likes.

    #1 1997 McLaren F1 GTR Longtail, specifically in this livery of the #42 (not the #43 either which has white side mirrors).

    #2 2001 Bentley Speed 8. The 2003 version is not pretty imo even though it won LeMans unlike 2001.

    #3 1999 Mercedes CLR. Infamous and didn't really race as it was withdrawn, but timeless design.

    I do like the Rothmans 956 cars though and the Silk Cut Jags...a lot of stuff from the 80s was great.

    What class?? Prototypes or everything? They did race Ferrari GTO's at Lemans and they are considered by many to be the best looking race cars ever. But they are not in the same league for speed as let's say a 917LH. P4's and GT40 Mirages were pretty as was the Aston Martin T70, all 1967.

    Porsche fans even think the Pink Pig was ugly :)

    Anything that raced, purely aesthetically. Put a pic up here, let’s see how many likes it gets.

    It reminds me of what Ken Miles says in "Ford v. Ferrari" while sitting in the Ford pit and watching the Ferrari P3s (which looked similar to the P4) being pushed past: "If this were a beauty pageant, we just lost."

    Very quick Chap 2D. Forgotten in a sea of Ford vs. Ferrari. Loved the Texas road plate on the back.
