Yes, in fact, the Ford DP is ugly as a butt. That "artist" rendering we got last year was pretty accurate unfortunately.

It is the most technically interesting of the bunch though. I think.

No it wasn't - the whole front end is different.

You're right. I was refering to the ugliness though. I thought they were joking when the put out that rendering. Apparently not.

I think the general proportions are just all wrong on these cars. The rules makers obviously never took automotive design classes. The greenhouse height is too tall relative to the waist height of the cars. You can see how unnecessarily tall the greenhouses are by looking at the cars with the drivers in them. There's about a foot of space between the top of the driver's heads and the roof. I can understand wanting safe cars, but that's just silly.

Is this something rulemakers have to do, though.
