Good to see a car almost ready for next year, If they would stand a small chance against the factory teams, probably not.

LOL... aesthetics...

What is aesthetically-pleasing is different for every individual. Case in point - the Porsche piglet!

I do have one worry about the future of LMP1 though, aesthetically - I want to keep the diversity. Keep a few open-top cars on the racetrack - we're now down to only two... the Muscle Milk HPD and the Strakka HPD.

KlBD should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Looks like there is quite a bit of Pescarolo 03 influence in the shape of the long rear fenders...

True - this is a lot less ready than either of those two...

That said, for something to reach the grid there probably has to be an array of efforts that don't make it - efforts that teach people what not to do, that give engineers experience in figuring what to do, that give suppliers a stream of work that keep them going.

In that light it's great to see the Perrin, even it all it does directly is to feature in the list of sportscars that never raced; and if it does more, gets to the stage of say the Bailey, or even rolls around like the Protran of 2006, or Lavaggi of 2007, or Euzkadi of 2008 then if I'm lucky enough to see it I'll cheer and smile in just the same way I cheered for those cars.

I like coupes. In my eyes the Audi looks nothing like the Toyota, nor the 908, nor the Lola. Its just a closed cockpit but you clearly see the differences. Next year I bet they will be even more different, and hopefully someone uses this perrinn.

Yeah, that's true. Someone could always pick up the design and run with it (which the permission of the designers, of course!). That almost happened with the Peugeot 908 Hybrid 4 if I'm not mistaken?

Thanks a lot, that looks like an awesome museum!


I like having both coupes and roadsters in LMP1, it's cool having the variety.
