We'll have full res. photos up on TOV-M shortly.

Honestly, I don't really like it. It's plain, doesn't do much for the shape of the car, and the fact that they didn't make the geometry of the original red style line on the nose match that of the new upper line makes it look like an afterthought. Top down view looks good but we won't see the car that way very often.

Also, even though the nose has a fairly straight rake the upper swoosh and the highlighting around it gives the illusion of a tiered nose like several cars had last year (it didn't look good then).

Wish they went with white/red, but since we know they won't do that, maybe something like a light shade of solid grey, like the Chicane Grey on the McLaren 675LT? This almost looks black..

It'll look good on track and in night time races, the white background makes it look darker, I like it

It's a livery that says "Until I get a sponsor, I'm going to sit here and sulk". Almost as boring as their hat designs.

Has anyone here actually paid the $50.57 for one of those hats?

I think the real reason for the change is that it looked far too much like the Force India livery on TV, and at the track for that matter. If I kept making the mistake of thinking I'm seeing a McLaren coming up the track, only to realize it ain't as it came closer to the camera, what chance a casual jockey??

No doubt! They were ridiculously similar. I watch regularly as well and could only tell them apart if I could see them close enough to make out the sponsors names on the car.

I posted the following comments in another thread as part of the discussion on Honda's new Global Corporate Look, but it should also be posted here as it relates to the new livery on the McLaren-Honda.

'It may be just a coincidence (rather than intentional) but the look of the new livery on the nose of the McLaren-Honda MP4-30 reminds me somewhat of the look of the nose and cockpit of the HondaJet! Yeah!!! Go Honda Go! Go forward Honda with the potential of having an absolutely exciting and rewarding future, GO, GO, GO...OOOO!'

Up, up, up into a skyward trend of dominance! Go Honda Go! Yahoooooooooooooo!

I have been scratching my head trying to remember where I've seen those livery before... Finally remember: Team Mugen

I think the second swoosh on the nose looks like shit. If they removed that, it'd be just fine.

I'm with you. Either remove it or make both nose swooshes symmetrical.

Actually what I'd do is remove the upper one but make the lower one match its shape (Honda badge would be either white or black because it would be in the red then). That would make it look really good.

I agree with that, and it'd really stand out.
