Thought it may have been part of an optional track pack, or club sport pack. But thatís probably a wish too far.

The track package seem serious way beyond aesthetics (cup tires), so maybe not an impossible option for Europe?

It was the morning before.

During the final evaluation, it's more about feel rather than data figures. 1 car, multiple drivers, wheel & tire sets exchanged. Notes compared, adjustments made. Repeat.

When the lap time is done, there won't be spy photographers around.

With the big ass grille up front, the black out/night package is gonna be a must to help hide its size :

Though the frozen blue color shows off the line and the contours of the body. Wheels design looks pretty good too

Looks like they might be testing M performance suspension. The car looks slightly dropped from the photos.

That's what I was wondering. I think you're correct. Must be the 2 color options they'll offer

I still struggle with:
  • Huge grills
  • No more Hofmeister kink
  • Side character line below door handle
  • Lower side window sill line curving upwards
  • Generic looking taillights

I am all for evolution, but this is a lot to take in .
