    Le Mans Nissan Deltawing

    Last year I already saw a picture of this thing. It was predicted to revolutionize Le Mans.
    Only now it has come out it will be powered by Nissan. A 1.6 DIG-T turbo engine, tuned to produce 300hp.
    The car enters this year as a showcase of future technology.
    So it will play no part in the endresults, just drive around.
    It weighs half of a regular racecar, which should make the weight around 450 to 500 kgs.
    It also has half of the drag a normal racecar has. Performance is predicted inbetween the LMP2 and LMP1 class, which is seriously fast.

    Two of the three drivers will be Marino Franchitti and Michael Krumm.
    It will start from garage box 56 and will have startnumber 0
    You gotta love Nissan for producing some very radical cars in these last years.

    Nissan didn't exactly build this car. They are just providing the engine and putting their name on the side of the car.

    The Deltawing was a joint effort from Ben Bowlby of Lola and Chip Ganassi Racing.
