New Ft-1 Being Unloaded.

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]The hype of this car has been amazing and all the generic HD videos have been great. But something about this cellphone footage struck a chord with me. I expected a roar but there is no noise from the hybrid engine. The 'Is that a Ferrari' comment in the background. The close up of the driver opening the door with a hidden door handle inside the door vent. The front end has always be contentious, but to me that's not bad looking in a real world environment.[/font][/color]

EDIT: And apologies for the double front page post and the inability to link a video so it appears there. Irokin to the rescue?

Three time Formula One world champion, Australian National Treasure and all round top bloke.

A great loss for Australian Motorsport and a true legend. The only driver to build and win with his own F1 car.

I suppose we all saw it coming. And it probably doesnt affect us guys with the older cars but its still sad to see it go.
