Remember Dutch designer Andries Van Overbeeke? Back in 2015, he penned a series of sketches that showed us what 2017’s Red Bull Formula 1 car could have looked like. Needless to say, his wide-bodied, fat-tired vision was far more exciting than what we got in reality.
Now though, Van Overbeeke is back, and this time he’s taken on the challenge of redesigning the best F1 car on the grid—Lewis Hamilton’s #44 Mercedes.
Just look at that. What a thing. The most obvious change is the use of a glass canopy over the cockpit rather than the current halo safety device, but there’s also big wheels, a sculpted rear wing, and seriously swoopy lines.
What do we think, Internet? Reckon anything like this could make it to a racetrack near you in the future?
