The Mercedes W08 Looks Even More Incredible In These Studio Shots

Mercedes have finally released some studio shots of its 2017 F1 contender and it really shows off what an amazing looking machine it is.

What a machine!
What a machine!

We’ve already seen photos of the new W08 on track but unlike other teams, we’ve had to wait a little while to see some studio shots of it.

Aside from the swanky neon-streaked livery you can really see just how crazy some of the aero is on this car. Check out those sculpted sidepods!

There’s also some really intricate stuff going on with the bargeboards and the array of winglets, but one of the big talking points is the ‘T-wing’ just in front of the rear wing, which appears to be an evolution of the ‘monkey seat’ which was popular on the last generation of F1 cars.

Hooray for not having a thumb nose!

The saying goes that if a racing car looks fast, then it will be fast. If that holds true then the Mercedes W08 is going to take some beating in 2017, because it looks absolutely mega.

It'll be a surprise if the W08 isn't somewhere near the front of the grid
