This is my entry for the contest! Influences were mostly the K1 Attack, Audi R8, Ferrari 458 and Porsche Boxster. Simplicity was definitely a goal to keep costs down.
The front features a notably curvy, yet simple front headlight, big braking intakes that also help downforce and a lower front spoiler. The middle features a stanard, large intake for the side mounted radiator. The rear features another highly stylized rear tail light, and accenting rear bumper, as well as air vents over the engine bay and a wing which was based on the wing provided in the contest.
My motivation comes from the fact that this is an MR car based on the awesome LS-series engine. I would love to see the winning car get produced in this challenge!
