1976: Copersucar Fittipaldi

Or “Coper-f**king-sucar” as they’re referred to by Stephen Mangan in the film Rush. The earlier version of this livery, which held over from 1975 and raced a few times in 1976, didn’t quite work as well – but this one adjusted the layout of the bird logo, and lost the massive Brazilian flag from the (now non-existent) airbox, and was all the better for it. The logo worked much better on a silver car than the later yellow, too.
