Press Release : Nissan Backs Ground-Breaking DeltaWing Project for Le Mans

Nissan unveiled today its experimental race car project, that is a joint project with DeltaWing in which Nisan contributes 1.6-liter DIG-T engine technology.

Nissan leads charge as founding partner of this race car project and the Nissan DeltaWing will act as test bed for new road car technologies.

Set to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race this June. The Nissan DeltaWing’s engine, badged DIG-T (Direct Injection Gasoline – Turbocharged), is expected to produce around 300hp, sufficient to give Nissan DeltaWing lap times between LMP1 and LMP2 machines at Le Mans, despite having only half the power of those conventional prototypes. It features the same technology found in Nissan road cars, such as the range-topping Nissan Juke DIG-T.

Nissan DeltaWing is unlike any other racing car currently on track. The driver sits well back in the car, almost over the rear axle and looks ahead down a long, narrow fuselage to narrow twin front tyres, specially created for the car by tyre partner Michelin. With a rear-mounted engine, the car has a strong rearward weight bias, which makes it highly manoeuvrable, while its light weight and slippery shape make it far more efficient.
