Posted on: October 27, 2010 | Comments(16) | 2012 Chassis Designs | By: Jarrod

{Admin Note} With all of the excitement——and questions around the Future IndyCar Concept Announcement. We at IndyCar.com thought we’d enlist our users to have fun with the open design concept that the 2012 IndyCar chassis will endorse. For more information please visit the www.indycar.com/2012 page for interviews, car information and of course…the details on how you can design your own concept.

Latest design is in from Levi Hosselrode! Check out the angles he sent us:

    Not big on the new design. Several of the other concepts looked better

    I like it okay. I hope it has enough downforce, as low as the rear wing is, it looks a little droopy in the rear.

    It’s going from bad to worse.

    Don’t much mind what it looks like. I’m wondering if the car likes the air it’s passing through.

    Is there any actual aerodynamic theory behind it? What’s the bulge behind the roll hoop? What is the effect of the extensions going over the front suspension? I guess it’s hard to come up with anything stylistically unique when the car is half-designed for you already.

    well the front view looks like a F1/Learjet , I think that the designer is trying to hard to change the car into something else than an Indycar, MAKE IT SIMPLE and practical so people around the world can tell it’s an INDYCAR and not learjet on wheels .

    A.J. once said after a qually run at INDY that “it ran like a tub of shit”. In this case , substitute “Ran” with Looks!

    There are some interesting ideas there, like the wings going over the suspension. It was cool you provided multiple angles. Keep ‘em coming!

    It looks ok. I really liked the swift designs overall. I still think the old CART Reynard cars where very nice to look at.

    Talk to Adrian Newey. Yes, it’s only a fantasy from a game, but if you are going to go bold, have a look at this and stop trying to adapt the current pig of a car with add on bits.

    Looks like a cross between a F1 car, and a Stealth Fighter. Too angular. Not enough curves. Way NOT sexy…And cars, especially cars capable of going 200 mph, SHOULD be sexy.
