A real evolution on 2019- that orange matte paint hiding lots of body shape I feel!

So far I’m a tad disappointed. The barge boards look hardly different....

That car is clean. Like it better on the studio photo than in the presentation.

The sidepod outlets looks weird at the end of the coke shape, looks massively undercut in that area

Maybe its just the paint scheme fooling my eyes

Okay, now we're launched, you can see there's bit different sidepod upper philosophy this year versus most, diverting a lot more air around the sides rather than down off the upper surface, which is much flatter than most cars, they tried this before once and ended up changing back, so it's a little risky.
