Nissan DeltaWing is the name of the new project created and supported by Nissan. As you can see it radically differs from all existing racing cars. Yes, we speak about racing cars, because Deltawing is not just a decorative project, as soon as it's possible it will compete in Le Mans from "Garage 56" - a special place in the pit-lane reserved for experimental automobiles.
The idea of the project belongs to Ben Bowlby, Dan Gurney's All-American Racers and Don Panoz. Later Nissan provided the project with 1.6-liter, four-cylinder, direct-injected, turbocharged engine with 300 hp. Despite the fact that the power of the DIG-T (Direct Injection Gasoline — Turbocharged) is 200 lesser for usual cars of the Le Mans race in the combination with well-thought design that provide minimal aerodynamic drag and new chassis it allows to overcome the turns in Le Mans track as fast as LMP1 and LMP2 classes do.
Because the Deltawing will compete as an experimental car and it doesn't follow any technical guidelines it will wear Number 0 and won't be classified in the results. However it's a grate project and I hope it will show the best results in the oncoming race.
