Force India Sneak Preview!

Down in the MP4-23 rollout comments, reader Buttons wonders how the Spyker car will look once the Farce Force India folks get done with it.  Well, thanks to the sharp eyes of Official First Reader Mallory, who noticed a small link on the Formula1.com webpage, we have our answer!

Pretty okay, I think, but click below for a shot that'll make you forget all about that MP4-23 hussy...

Baby, where you been all my life?  If I said you had a beautiful chassis, would you hold it against me?  Do those tires go all the way up?

Seriously, though, that's one classy livery.  I particularly like the India-style sunburst on the tops of the sidepods, and that maroon-and-white with gold highlights is really, really pretty.

Of course, underneath the makeup, this is still a slattern.  These photos were taken during the December testing at Jerez, so they're not particularly recent.  I'm not even going to bother doing an eval of the car yet, since there's time for the bodywork to change.  Basically it's just a Spyker with a nice paintjob.  If you put lipstick on a pig, you've still got a pig...

That is one gorgeous car.  That shade of red could make one forget all about Ferrari red.   

(Sharp eyes, I'd  missed the sunbursts.)
