Thanks for finding the Thibault Chevron pic- that was they year it actually raced at Le Mans- it was also entered in 88 as well (in a plain red livery, renamed as a TJ-01) but failed scrutineering- one Le Mans report described it as a 'grotty red blob'....

Surf the web for pics of the original UOP Shadow to get a taste or what Ugly or Grotesque really mean when it comes to sportscars....

Look at the Can-Am prototypes though...some were just awful...
How about this one- the MAC'S-IT Special?- and no, you're not seeing things, that IS a car with 4 engines......

I'm still searching out a picture of the ugliest racecar ever (any type of major series) that date back to 1963 0r 1964...

Smokey Ynunnick build a car for the Indy 500 that literally look ed like a motorcycle side car mounted to a flat frame with a big engine sitting right next to the driver...Butt Ugly...

But I cannot find a pic of it anywhere (and it would probably be copyrighted anyway...

Tim
Scroll down and you will see there is a head on picture of the Capsule car from the 500, your right its not a nice.

WOW! You guys are really outdoing each other with this topic! I liked the MAC-IT's plaid upholstery.

But this thing from edu, well, I am really not sure what to say...it must be the forerunner of the Daytona Prototype class, which is now looking better all the time-considering the potential alternatives that may come from Brazil!

Edu's picture reminds me of a channels Islands sand racer.
whatever it is I hope the goodwood FOS gets hold of it someday.

Well, if it was good enough for Mercedes.....

Going back to Can Am though- as Tim said earlier, the rules allowed teams to come up with all kinds of madcap creations- but madcap and ugly doesn't neccessarily mean unsuccessful- remeber the Chparral 2J? You could call it ugly, but it was so fast they banned it....

(It isn't until you see a pic of the actual car with a driver in it that you appreciate just how weird it was....)

Wow, that looks really compact, like open top version of the 80's Ecosse C2.

The car of the photo was constructed in Brazil in 1965, by Bica Votnamis. It known as "Caçador de Estrelas" (Star Hunter). The engine is of Corvette V-8. Never finished a race.

Hey, edu, a Corvette V-8? Mercy! What sort of class did this car race in? Was it meant for the long distance over the road races?
