Where is this and who built it?
I've been trying to work that out myself. In the associated article (in Italian) it says it was created for FOM to show what the cars will look like. But the front wheel arch winglets are wrong/different and it doesn't look like it has the rear deflectors to keep the rear tyre squirt out of the diffuser. Unless those parts were too thin?!
There is a Hype energy drink fridge in the back, and Hype energy sponsored force India since 2015 (according to Wikipedia)

Okay... How does that relate to the car?

I mean FOM either built the car themselves or subcontracted someone to do it. This might be some evidence of who they subcontracted it (the team or facilities formally known as force India)

Given that information, forum insiders, if they exist, could ask around Milton Keynes.

From the front view, the front wing looks like an old fashioned strongman's moustache.

Actually the whole car looks a bit tacky from the front view. The rear wing especially. Not keen.
I really dislike the shear size of the front wing, many more sq cm more than current ones (which are far too big anyway!!!).

In my opinion….

As per link on previous page, it was apparently built by a company called the Memento Group.

They are apparently licensed by Liberty Media to build all sorts of F1 memorabilia, including replica cars.

The whole car looks nice...modern classic let's say!

But...who the hell thought that this loooooong nose would look nice?? It's way too long and it destroys the car's proportions! Hopefully teams will have the option of making it shorter...otherwise I see F1 looking for a redesign in 2 years time... :oops:

Not really. These 2 geometric surfaces have to be hidden when in plan view.

I think I've posted this here before to highlight the difference in the front overhang:

Perhaps the long nose is a result of the aero concept the FIA put together. If so, it's a case of form following function. If the long nose gives good racing then most people will not even notice the nose.

I'd have loved to see much shorter cars with the same width, that said, I like the look of the new car. It looks great to me and I cant wait to see the variations introduced by the teams and in their liveries.

That front wing look terrible. It remind me of snow plough, only competible for tractor or locomotive. The side pods, how on the earth they need that big sidepod radiator hole? Unless they use F1 car to do rally or drifting

I can't imagine too many teams will take that route, iirc they don't work as well at the front of the car due to the geometries involved and the teams also prefer getting any item they can as high as possible so as to not disturb the airflow to the floor and side-pods.
