We're back with a new format. From on, we'll bring the past week's most exciting livery and design news from the world of motor racing every Friday. Here's the very first edition.
BMW Motorsport unveiled their Formula E car…
Biggest news first: BMW Motorsport unveiled their challenger for the 2019/20 FIA Formula E season and we love it! They mixed in quite a bit of purple into the livery, changed the shade of blue and kept their asymmetric scheme from last season.
Even one day after its launch, we still celebrate our new car for the @FIAFormulaE. Because the design is simply awesome!🎉#RacingBeyond #icelebrate #BMW #BMWiMotorsport #BMWi #ABBFormula @BMWi pic.twitter.com/iu3wm0eCNi— BMW Motorsport (@BMWMotorsport) October 15, 2019
If you haven't already, you should definitely also watch the launch video. It contains a short section about how the livery came together.
…as did NIO 333 Racing
With the Formula E having completed official pre-season testing this week, NIO also revealed their Season 6 car. It's quite a contrast to last season's car with clear edges instead of a gradient. We quite like the evolution and also the re-introduction of dark blue. It's no BMW though.
Take a look at our new livery - on the basis of NIO blue adding the indigo blue representing 333 Racing and the Chinese red. What do you think? #NIO333FE #ABBFormulaE pic.twitter.com/aQlOxfhh8L— NIO 333 Formula E Team (@NIO333FormulaE) October 15, 2019
James Calado's Formula E helmet

Macau Liveries for Maro Engel and Raffaele Marciello
Eastern liveries can be quite something for non-Asian motorsport fans. The Gruppe M liveries for this year's Macau Grand Prix certainly don't disappoint.
Check out GruppeM’s ⚡ and 🔥 liveries for Macau's FIA GT World Cup!#IntGTC race winners Raffaele Marciello and Maro Engel are both confirmed amongst Mercedes-AMG’s six entries.

Cheeky self-promotion: if you want to know more about why Asian liveries are often so eye-catching – we wrote a little piece on that: betweenracinglines.com/blog/livery-design-in-asia

A cool McLaren Mercedes concept
Andy Werner already published a McLaren Mercedes some days ago and now did another version with inverted colours. Which one do you prefer – black/orange or orange/black?

A cool V8 Supercar concept
We can only say it again and again: you can stick pretty much anything onto a V8 Supercar and it will look amazing. So does this concept by Nick Moss.
