Force India unveils their 2008 car in Mumbai

Force India LogoI just finished watching the webcast from the Force India car launch. Mr. Mallya had some difficulties pronouncing the names of his F1 drivers right :-) but the event was more about the car.

From what I could see from the small screen web video on the excellent Force India website, the colour scheme is different from the interim livery the team has been using so far this winter. In Vijay Mallya’s words the 2008 car, VJM01, is white and tungsten (gold) with touches of red. The Kingfisher logo can’t be missed. I will post the photos here once they become available.

    I like it. The gold is very typical India. It’s quite a striking car. Gold is heavy though:)

    Definetly a nice looking car, the gold could’ve been more spread out though, but overall very unique features and easy to spot car. Let’s give Fisichella our support and wish him the best of luck for 2008.

    it definitelly looks nice when stationary, I really wonder how will it look on TV screens and on track once it runs on track

    let’s hope the weight of the gold will not have same effect on them as the weight of the Earth had on Honda last year :-)

    Fortunately, Honda abandoned their old plain design, otherwise this car will strike some comparable similarities..but good touch with the gold trimming nevertheless…
