So far the Toyota is the most LMP-like, the Glickenhaus is what I expected a Hypercar to be, and this Peugeot is currently blowing my mind.

I like it. No rear wing on the aero seems like something Ben Bowlby would do :) (Deltawing and Nissan front engined LMP). That must have something very special going on in the floor.

He tried with the GT-R LM but they had to stick a wing on in the end :lol:

It's hideous and i hope they never make a production version of this and if they do that i will never have to see one in the wild.

I kinda expect some of the details, like those acrylic (?) tail light / aero fins to disappear once it's in the actual race spec, where it will more likely be carbon parts with LED strips - same goes for the exhausts etc.

BTW: which regs is this thing supposed to adhere to? LMH? LMDh?

LMH, LMdH is the LMP2 tub with some styling differences.

So are the Senna and Valkyrie honestly, if you pursue extreme aero you are gonna end up with something like that.

So they will have to build some road going version of this atrocity, right?

Not necessarily, there's still stipulation for prototypes in the hyper car rules. I think because not enough OEMs signed up to the stupid expensive class.

It may just be me...but I am getting a Devel 16 styling vibe on this unholy batmobile X current gen FE car offspring. However, like the GT-r fiasco...I think I will have to have the die-cast model.
