Those renders looks nothing like the real car.

It has almost no sidepods, and it has real deflectors on top of the sidepods, acting as bargeboards to push the wake outboard

Renders are different. Sidepods are very sculpted in the real thing.

But on a quick look, it looks like a McLaren with tighter sidepods and with an overcut. So it is mostly a mix of what McLaren and Williams has done, with a sharp "wall" on the outer edge of the sidepod similar to what Aston has.

That looks different on all fronts in relative to the real car shown on presentation. Front wing, sidepods ..

How did they get away with those turning vanes underneath the rear view mirrors?

Real car looks quite different from the renders; That floor looks wicked, first car fully designed under James Allison, hope it does push them down from the perch

Its completely different. The real car is showing flat edged side-pod like the AMR22

The render is so different from the real car it's not worth looking at it.

I'd remove the "render" pictures, the car is completely different, it's not even close.

Are those officially released renders?

"Does the competitor in you make you curious to see the other car launches" ... almost sounds like that was recorded some time ago before the other cars were revealed?

The car doesn't appear to have any noteworthy hot air exit but also no louvres

edit: there is one but it's relatively small

edit2: btw what's the point of brightening all those images in all threads when it doesn't reveal any additional details most of the time?
