Well she isn't going to win any awards in a beauty pageant.

The Nismo LMP1 is a very different beast, almost the reserse of it competitors being not just front engined but having the combustion engine powering the front wheels not the rear :o

My first thought was WTF were they thinking, but then I thought how the electric motors produce so much torque that putting that through the back wheels might be some inspired thinking.

The thing is ugly as bat shit so if it doesn't work out in the race they can paint it black and use it in the next Batman movie.

Its also rather plain compared to the other LMP1 / P2 cars.
A lot less cooling ducts / exits, one would presume Nissan know what they are doing

New Porsche for 2015

Take the stickers off and you would think it is a failed home grown supercar.

I am looking forward to how this car goes at Le Mans. Still think it butt ugly.
