Looks a lot like the VJM08 a-spec.

Surprised at retaining the Manor name, given the personnel changes...

As far as I know, if all the other teams raise no objection to a name change it can go ahead with Bernie's consent, the other teams are less likely to raise an objection because they may have to change their own team name sometime in the future themselves aka Braun to Mercedes etc...(Unless you are Ferrari)

Wasn't the 'official' name last year Manor Marussia, so they've changed anyway? Given that Lotus will presumably change to Renault, I can't imagine there was any teams insisting they'd have to retain Manor in the name. Guess the owners think there's value in keeping it over something new.

Apparently they won't even be known as Manor Racing. Bernie encourages smaller, less reliable teams to be known as acronym versions of their name, i.e HRT was Hispania Racing Team, and even Caterham was under pressure to change to CF1 before they folded.
The re-branded Manor Racing team’s chassis is to be called MRT, as in ‘Manor Racing Team,’ sources have confirmed.

The new car, which recently passed its final crash test, will thus be run as an MRT-Mercedes. :? The Marussia name, which had to be used for the chassis last year, has now been dropped completely.

The team confirmed earlier today that it would henceforth be known as Manor Racing, having been Manor Marussia F1 Team last year, and latterly Manor F1 Team.

Bernie Ecclestone is keen on initials for teams that do not have a strong heritage, and in the past persuaded the Hispania Racing Team to run as HRT, and Midland to run as MF1. At one stage there was a possibility that Caterham would morph into CF1, prior to the team’s closure.

Such generic names also potentially make it easier for new owners to take them over, and add their own names to the mix.

That is what the chassis will be called like Toro Rosso is called STR9 etc...

F1 Racing magazine states that Martin Withmarsh has been helping behind the scenes for the team and has been interviewing driver candidates, also says he would take a senior position if offered to him.
