According to the Italian publication Omnicorse Force India livery will feature Telmex colours in 2014 and an unique hump on the top of the monocoque.

 

Andy Green has “a few surprises” for the Formula 1 paddock up his sleeve for when the new VJM07 is unveiled, Omnicorse claims that Andy’s new Force India will have a ‘hump’ not on the nose, but directly atop the monocoque, This report speculates that the solution directs more air underneath the car, without compromising the amount of space necessary inside the cockpit.

I've always liked the green, white and orange that they've had since 2009.

what i dont get is if the VJM07 is going to be like entirely a different color like blue (Telmex) or will it keep its colors but feature some Telmex branding?

From that sketch , I take it it will look like the RB6

With the 2 ''bumps'' either side on the monocoque.  :confused:

It'd be strange to see a Force India in Telmex colours, given their backing of Sauber when Perez was there constituted only of a few sponsor decals.

Is it possible the hump could be a duct like the 2012 Red Bull?

The lower nose makes the profile look incredible.

 

Lets hope it doesn't look too bad from the front.  The livery is fantastic given how many colours they had to use.

Hmmm, I guess it is very ugly, so they'll just show the nose along with the rest of the car later in the week.

Very cool, maybe a future-classic livery if they stick some years with it.

Looks to me that the mounting points for the front wing are in the white part of the nose.  The black part of the nose being the overhang due to the new rules.

I wonder how it'll look on television though - colours seem very contrasted. You're not going to get such a bright green in reality, I think.

Too right.

 

There is a direct compare and contrast opportunity on their website:

For those wondering about the Force India nose, last I heard it wasn't miles from this look...

Looking forward to seeing it from different angles / 3D. That'll give us a much better idea of the packaging compromises thenew regs have thrown up. They always look sleek and sporty from the side view. I expect it will have some ungainly bulges when looked at from different angles.

Not into the new livery at all. Colour scheme ok but the various sponsors aren't blended well imo. Bit of a bodge overall. 

As for the design. Why only a side on shot? What are they hiding?

The red Claro logo looks a bit weird on the black paint, a white stroke should be added imho. Otherwise it looks good, I like it.

wow.. that livery. 

And in general, car looks superior to the previous year car with that retarded noses. It looks quick

 

Front wing mounted quite before the tip of the nose

Looks very 1990's to me and for some reason it reminds of me the 1997 Minardi.

 

I know they are nothing alike but I just get that vibe.

 @tgruener: #F1 The nose you see in the Force India pic is only a launch spec. Later version will look very different.

The dildo up front is painted black. I hope more teams do that so it's the least noticeable.

This is the thing that always screws up the liveries of the smaller teams. The sponsor logos are presented in their various corporate colours rather than presented with a single color used on the team livery.

 

Why only a side on shot? What are they hiding?

The ugly truth?

First I thought that looks cool but then I opened the picture with Photoshop and it seems that the black part of the nose has a different angle (ant bear?). And then of course it also is a stepped nose as we already know it.

 

So overall I guess it will be pretty ugly.
