Now there is a first impression of the new super sports car for the classic in France: At its Night of Champions, Porsche published computer graphics of the racing car that are reminiscent of three historical models.
No further details about the Porsche-LMDh are known so far. One thing is clear: Porsche, like its sister company Audi, is working with the LMP2 manufacturer Multimatic. Both Volkswagen subsidiaries will build a four-liter V8 biturbo. The standard hybrid system comes from Bosch and enables a system output of 680 hp.
The US top team Penske – the most successful team at the legendary Indianapolis 500 miles – will be the task force. Customer teams can also buy the Porsche.
Porsche has already won the classic on the Sarthe 19 times. The last win at Le Mans was in 2017 with Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley and Earl Bamber at the wheel. The debut of the new racing car is planned for 2023. The test program will start at the beginning of 2022.
