It's an exciting time to be a fan of sports car racing. In the next two years, we'll see an influx of car manufacturers like Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, and BMW racing in the top class of the World Endurance Championship (WEC).
In the latter's case, their latest teaser image shows that without a doubt, their very own Le Mans racer will be instantly recognized on the track. Wanna know why? Well, with a bit of image tinkering, we discovered this:
Just take a look at that trademark BMW nose. The frontal shot has revealed a few more design details of the BMW M LMDh race car apart from the kidney grille, such as the narrow closed cockpit, the vertical light strips, and the huge rear wing.
So far, there are no technical details yet for the new BMW race car. But what we do know now is that since it's under the LMDh class, it will have a chassis made by Dallara. Also, the car will also have the mandatory hybrid system by Bosch, Williams Advanced Engineering, and Xtrac.
Meanwhile, the total power output of its internal combustion engine and the hybrid system will be limited to 670 PS, and the car will weigh at least 1,030 kg.
BMW M will be launching the car on June 6, but we won't see the LMDh race car on the tracks just yet. Apparently, it will have its racing debut on the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 2023 before entering the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans.
