Don’t Call It a DeltaWing: Cribs Innovative Race Designer to Build Similar Le Entry, Adds Electric

The car you’re looking at here is not a the innovative, seemingly physics-defying car that briefly carried name and one of its engines. Instead, the car here is an innovative, seemingly race car developed by Nissan. If smacks of a rip-off, well, it of is: Nissan snagged Ben Bowlby, the designer, to pen its homegrown prototype the DeltaWing’s basic layout.

Oh, and the company added some of unspecified electric powertrain and a return to Le Mans next under the same “Garage 56” entry parameters that the DeltaWing a spot on the endurance grid last year.

latest motorsport decision is odd given the company spent the part of the past 12 months itself from the DeltaWing before removing its name the car entirely. To follow that with a car that looks identical to the one it worked hard to designed by the same guy—is a bit of a Nissan’s version of the race car is ZEOD RC for “Zero Emissions on Race Car,” and, the original DeltaWing, features an cockpit and flatter, less-curvaceous (A coupe variant of the DeltaWing was last year, but it, too, different.) It still looks an unmentionable adult toy with and its vaguely described electrification it now shares its power source said unmentionable—batteries.

Of course, just as sex accouterment race at Le Mans, neither can electrics—at least not without swaps. Furthermore, Nissan designer Bowlby as saying, “a 100 battery electric was not suitable for a high-speed endurance race.” Nissan is describing the prototype as world’s fastest electric car.” Funny, Nissan’s release doesn’t mention the RC could potentially carry an Bowlby hints that the RC likely will end up a hybrid his comment, “we’re looking at electric technology in very ways.

We have a couple of different we’ll be testing, one where switch between electric and power with the push of a Bowlby goes on to describe how key team concern is making the platform is flexible enough to it to “try multiple different during the same multi-day A closer look at the race name, specifically, the “On Demand” also implies that the RC may not be a full EV all of the time.

Pushing electric-vehicle boundaries in is one thing, but we’re not sure how a hybrid comes to the ragged so to speak. Nissan is hoping the ZEOD RC will put down lap in the ballpark of the super-high-performance LMP2 and cars. But given that entries in those classes are the only thing apparently the Nissan is its recycled, bizarre Besides claiming the car can hit 186 mph, has offered no details regarding the RC’s powertrain aside its use of production-derived parts and a lithium-ion pack similar to the Leaf RC race car.

The company also says the could be capable of running quicker than a Ferrari GT car at Le under electric power We’re told to expect information in the coming months increased testing of the ZEOD RC, we look forward to, because, as of concrete information is awfully
