nice skin, and very sneaky bit of reasoning.Last one from me (unless I get very bored tomorrow or something...). A little backstory.
Tom Walkinshaw was the guy running the Volvo BTCC effort in the mid 90's, his TWR Group even having a company together with Volvo known as Auto Nova AB. And there was talks in 1996 that Walkinshaw had convinced Volvo to pay enough the re-badge the Hart engines to Volvo, and thus we would've had Arrows-Volvo in F1. This was said to be for the 1997 season in F1. Now, the 1997 Arrows was white, blue (and bits of red) with Parmalat sponsorship. Seeing how I had just done the BMW 6-series, that wasn't too interesting.
However, I found a loophole. In 1997 Arrows used Yamaha engines. They didn't use the re-badged Hart-engines until 1998. Which meant that in this fantasy-scenario, the Arrows-Volvo wouldn't appear until 1998. So, there it was then. The loophole to make a livery based on a fantasy, based on negotiations that never worked.
The Arrows-Volvo F1 98 240 Turbo!
