Nissan DeltaWing racer test at Sebring (video!)


Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Design, Transportation, Videos


The world of racing may be getting a facelift, if Nissan gets its way. Nissan has developed the DeltaWing and set its sights on Le Mans. It'll will be entering the DeltaWing into the 24-hour race, not as a traditional racer, but as a demonstrator. Nissan will be showing off what racing could look like in the future.

The beauty in this futuristic design is that its half the weight of a traditional Le Mans racer and has half the aerodynamic drag as traditional racers as well. Though it’s a funky design, we like seeing companies thinking outside the box and innovating on traditional schematics.

Alongside the Le Mans debut, Nissan will be releasing a barrage of YouTube videos showing off different aspects of the racer. Here is the first of many tests the DeltaWing will be put through. Enjoy the “Wind Tunnel” clip after the jump.
