    Not a huge fan of the rear end. Looks pretty ungainly.

    I saw the Team Finlands pics, I agree with Chris, the rear looks MEH.

    BUT THE EXHAUST PIPE, THEY'RE GLORIOUS.

    Not really sure how some people have already written it off as being the slowest car in the WRC for 2017, based on some general specs and videos. Looks plenty fast to me, especially on gravel. Definitely the best sounding car too.

    The issue I see with the Toyota, is how much aero work that have gone in to all fickly bits. It's rallying, I wonder how much of the these parts that will actually be on the car getting into service.

    Ah yes, but! With a bit of cardboard, spray paint and imagination you can make your Yaris look almost identical :)

    I don't know how you guys find that rear ugly. That thing remids me of F1 cars from 2008, looks like a spaceship!

    Maybe I'm just bored of seeing some flat race cars:D

    Congrats to Toyota. Now they just need to get Lappi in that 3rd car ASAP![cough]And maybe replace a certain tree lover with Mikkelsen ;)[/cough]

    I know it's still early in the season, but so far I stand corrected about Tanak. Both him and Latvala so far seem to have reinvented themselves.
