The Nissan engine for the same series but used only in the GT500 cars

I was surprised to see that the engine is allowed only 100kg/hr fuel as in F1
Estimates are for 590hp

Sort of a preview of F1's front wings next year. Slightly taller, no cascades, full width, still swept.

Are sidepod chimney's for tire interaction? Or RW interaction? Something else? I suppose you get passive ventilation at a standstill at least.

Love the oldschool wing end plates right down to the road. Looks like the beam wing is acting as an extension to the diffuser with the end plates sealing the whole thing. Very 1980s if that is what's going on haha.

Has a Merc-like moustache ahead of the sidepod inlet.
