    Since the best looking F1 car thread was started, how about the worst looking? Here's my pick. The 1995 McLaren mp 4/10. Just plain ugly. Looks like a half formed siamese twin on it's engine cover.

    I think I might agree with you there. Most during that year were fairly hideous.

    Anything with those infamous X wings. I remember a pretty Ferrari looking like crap.

    The beginning of the end for the BMW Williams F1 venture.
    The Walrus was the worst mistake in the history of Williams. It cost them a free engine deal. :)

    I can't argue with anyone who doesn't like it, but it was original and had a pretty nice paint scheme. Besides, if you compare it to some of the crap-wagons of the late 70s and early 80s, it's not really that bad.

    I actually like it. I heard from my dad about it. It wasnt ugly, it was just very radical, and very shocking to the sport... i mean seriously think about it 6 wheels. Same with the Braham that had the suction fan, or the lotus with "aero package".

    the FW04 is seriously ugly.

    Maybe not the ugliest...

    Ferrari F300 with sprouted side pod wings. Jordan 198 had them also and maybe some other teams too. (at the 98 Imola GP I think?)

    Also at the 2001 Monaco GP (during thursday's practice), both Jordan and Arrows had some kind of wing at the front. Didn't look too good imo.

    Wasn't there an F1 car with a huge fan under the rear wing?

    I think I'll have to agree with you, though in my opinion all of the F1 cars in the last 12 years or so, even the Ferraris, have been less than beautiful; first they had downturned noses like aardvarks, now they have those silly suspended wings.

    Although it won a world championship, the Ferrari 312T4 of 1979 was probably the ugliest F1 Ferrari, though the early 1973 car and some of the turbo cars of the mid '80s weren't so hot, either.

    I think the ugliest were the walrus Williams BMW from last year, the Ferrari from Schumacher's first year with the team, and the williams from the early 80s with 4 rear wheels. Most of the cars from 83/84 were pretty ugly with those god-awful rear wings. One of my favorite cars is the Tyrell P34, except when it had the national bank livery.

    Was that the golden Warstein car with the vertical "fins" to hold the rear wing? Yup, agreed.

    P34 Tyrell and Ferrari T4.

    Some of the prettiest were the Lotus 78 and 79.

    All least all these cars won races.
