Very nice concept. The only thing I dislike are those "spikes" on the front of the car. What for?

they look like mounts for the front splitter.

nice design,
My only crit is the design of the front,
its a bit bullish and the shape it would effect drag coefficient,
maybe drop some of this ( as its free of the engine block been a R-R configuration I guess)
it help with e the air flow dramatically, you could also extend the front window down in a curve to this area.
but that what i do, ;)
just seems the drivers view of the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock would have restrictions dew to the design
that would be very limiting for a sports car when your aiming for the apex,
I love the back end.

great job
4 stars.

Thanks everybody for your kind words.

I've made 2 attempts to model car like 2 years ago but I've never made it this far. All I got was unfinished fenders and hood. I've never even gotten to model the wheels yet.

I'm very new to car modeling but i'm not so new to 3D. I've been doing architecture rendering for quite a while now.

My understanding about car aerodynamic is still very blurry. I will need to do a lot more research it. This is just my fun project I did for self education, so ... that's not much of a deal.

And I very appreciate all of your comments.

Nice model I think but stuido is very bad or the material of the car, reflection should be more blured and light should me more contrasted, regards!
