Nissan Deltawing experimental racecar in motion [videos]

The Nissan DeltaWing experimental racecar got out on the track at Sebring for some demonstration laps last week. In doing so, Nissan relased the first in-car footage as well as some track side shots.

With the potential to revolutionize endurance car racing as we know it, the Nissan DeltaWing aims to achieve lap times between conventional LMP1 and LMP2 machines at Le Mans while maintaining half the power, weight, aerodynamic drag and fuel consumption.

Equipped with Nissan's race-prepared 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine producing around 300hp (224 kW / 304 PS), the Deltawing will make its race debut at the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race this June wearing the number "0" for outside race classifications.

Ii will change the game for GT racing nonetheless, quite fascinated with this car. But due to a narrow front wheel configuration, handling would be quite a handful. For Nissan, the car acted as a perfect advertising vehicle. Smart move indeed!

Yes it drives but I don`t think that this car will be any copetition to GT cars. First vid shows that driver struggling lack of grip on front wheels.

It's not really a Nissan Vehicle, they've just signed up to supply the engine/drivetrain. It's a shame the DeltaWing wasnt chosen to be the Indy2012 car. Imagine 45 of these flying round a circuit! It'll be great seeing it fly down Mulsanne regardless.
