Panoz Auto Development is just tired of seeing images on the web of cars people are claiming as the "Panoz Abruzzi", so they have released a teaser image as a little taste of what’s to come when the Abruzzi "Spirit of Le Mans" supercar debuts at the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans auto race. While waiting for the official details, the first teaser image of the future supercar looks quite promising.
"The styling is inspired from a classic era when racers would literally drive their own cars to Le Mans to compete and then drive back home. However, the technology of the Panoz Abruzzi ’Spirit of Le Mans’ is absolutely leading-edge. We will provide many more details about the concept and some very special elements surrounding this exciting new car next month at Le Mans," says Panoz
The supercar will feature a new body made from a Recyclable Energy Absorbing Matrix System (REAMS) which provides many environmental, performance and structural advantages. Panoz Auto Devel opment will also utilize a new three-stage "TRIFECTA COOLING" technology. This "Trifecta" is an innovative development that improves both engine performance and efficiency. In addition to a typical high-efficiency radiator, there are stage two and stage three cooling systems that lower coolant temperature on both the inflow to and the outflow from the radiator.
