The fin is still ugly.

Not having one on the LMPC makes the fin pretty obvious on LMP1 and LMP2. I probably shouldn't be giving anyone any ideas though.

me neither! i think its because of that awesome huge engine cover behind the cockpit, in part thats why the current cars look so ridiculous, the engine cover is way too small (r18 for example). Its because of the mandatory rear roll over structures, says Mulsanne Mike, so heres hoping that all the lmp1s will have this feature. About the front fenders - I kinda hoped that the smaller wheels will also make the fenders smaller but apparently they havent :/

Same. I don't see why people are ragging on the looks of the car. It's firmly built to the regs. Just be happy the design has been done!

I agree. And before the fin it was the narrower rear wing we complained about. I will miss the spiders, I enjoy the diversity between coupe and open cockpits. Especially for identifying drivers.

Agree!
A designed LMP1 is infinitely better than no car at all!

I think people (at least in my case) are ragging about the less then aesthetically pleasing aero trends and 2014 regulations.

IMO there are more posibilities to see flying pigs than watch that car in the WEC in 2014.....
But I'd like to be wrong

To me this looks similar to the recent Riley attempt to produce their LMPs, expect Riley had better credentials, and still nobody took a chance.

Personally I think the extended engine cover makes the fin less obtrusive from the design (looks more like the fin is intended to be there). However, I'm withholding judgment on the design until I see a real livery on this thing.

Then it seems that the pigs need fins and fender holes.

Agreed, althoough the engine cover itself kinda makes it look awkward. That area reminds me of Kremer Porsche 962 K8 with its dorsal fin.
