Starting March 26 when the motorsport’s queen competition hits Australia we’re in for another “flying circus” – and the time has come to experience the actors in a different setting.
More precisely, someone has taken the trouble of dressing up the competitor liveries on regular production models – and the results are certainly spectacular and warranting our attention. First off, we have the Red Bull Racing Aston Martin Valkyrie – 850-horsepower (633 kilowatts) and a better power-to-weight ratio than its equally impressive upcoming competitor – the yet unseen Mercedes-AMG Project One. We have it here with the now famous Red Bull Racing livery – this is probably how the two F1 drivers would want their own examples. The Ferrari LaFerrari can’t be had anymore, which is a shame considering how good it looks with an F1 livery.
The McLaren-Honda NSX is actually an oddball job – they could have easily plastered the F1 livery on the newly arrived 720S. We’re not here to complain though, as the Honda / Acura NSX looks spectacular in orange and black. Sauber’s 2017 livery is signaling 25 years of competition in Formula 1 – and we can tell you it looks great on the Ferrari 812 Superfast. There are also more examples – of we specifically enjoyed the Toro Rosso Alpine A110. But feel free to pass judgement on the others as well, embedded in the gallery below.
