The competition was organized by the tire company Michelin, and it was called “Le Mans 2030”. The jury decided that this is how the car-participant of the 24-hour marathon, which starts in 14 years, should look like.
The author of the project, Chinese designer believes that the racing car of the future should not only be faster than modern, but also much safer. The idea is that the pilots did not participate in the race at night.
With the onset of dusk, this Infiniti continues the race himself. There is an autonomous racing system, almost the same as in the cars of the new racing series Roborace. She now precedes the stages of Formula E.
Not surprisingly, all body solutions of the project are called to maximally improve aerodynamics. According to the author, fully closed wheels are a trifle. The main thing is special air tunnels, laid under the shell of the body. They are designed to increase the downforce of Infiniti at times.
Interestingly, the brand Infiniti is not connected today with the world motor sport. Perhaps this project will force the company to build a machine category LMP1.
