Nissan Working on Experimental Racer for Le Mans
Fret not, as the company has announced its intention to return to 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2014. According to Nissan President and Chief Executive Officer, Carlos Ghosn, the company is preparing an "innovative project that promises to continue the pioneering spirit of last year’s award-winning Nissan DeltaWing experimental entry." Nissan will return as the "Garage 56" entry for innovative concepts.
First details revealed on this experimental project show that it will offer an "innovative new powertrain technology." Data delivered by this experimental project will be provided to the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) who will then decide if this "breakthrough technology" can be used in the "endurance racing in the future."
Ghosn also revealed that the technology used in this experimental project can be used in both road car and race cars in the upcoming future.
