Nissan's DeltaWing is Tested at Sebring

Motorsport

Nissan is in full pursuit of developing the next-generation of race cars.

Earlier this month, Nissan revealed their ongoing development and testing of a potential race car design for the future. Called the DeltaWing, Nissan also announced plans to bring it to this year's Le Mans in the experimental car category. More importantly, its technology is meant to show what exactly can be done with modern technologies and building methods for the future of motorsport. It's powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder featuring direct injection and a turbocharger, producing a total of 300hp.

Just how serious are the guys at Nissan engineering about this technology? They brought on board the project, amongst others, American motorsport entrepreneur Don Panoz and former F1 driver Dan Gurney, as well as the two-time championship-winning Highcroft Racing Team.

They have just now released a new video showing the experimental racecar making its track debut last week at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Could this be a clear preview of what's coming up in the future? Anything is possible.
