Guys whole point of delta wing is aerodynamics ok say during lemans cause it's more arrow like its spends less energy cutting thru the air that's why it doesn't have to fuel as often as other teams so shut up and admire this car it could be the next winner at lemans...

It's not a Nissan. It just has a Nissan engine. They had nothing to do with the design or manufacture of the car at all.
Jackson Rojas Mar 20, 2012
That's not innovation that's just wrong and also how does it turn good
Alan Clark Mar 20, 2012
Thoughts: 1. Batmobile, 2. Looks "wrong". 3. Looks slow. Nissan planning on winning (when/if they actually compete) based on fuel economy (slow but less pit stops)?
Description: The Nissan DeltaWing will run in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, though it won't be a competitive model. Check out the cockpit cam below.

Marino Franchitti and Michael Krumm are the current drivers for the DeltaWing. They will also be driving if for LeMans. Marino is Dario's younger brother.
Carlton Salmon Mar 20, 2012
Is that really Dario Franchitti driving?
Dale Schroeder Mar 20, 2012
I do hope this makes it through the entire race, I'm really curious how it will hold up in actual racing conditions.
Phillip Fitchew Mar 20, 2012
Did they get Dario Franchitti to drive?
Description: The incredible albeit funky race car could revolutionize the world of racing, as it weighs roughly half as much as normal competition cars now and has half the aerodynamic drag. That means higher effi...

Does anyone know the amount of HP and top speed?
Pablo Herasme Mar 21, 2012
Looks like something Michael Keaton Might drive
Jim Jimm Mar 20, 2012
Looks like what I made in wood shop in jr high
David Pires-Ihsaan Mar 20, 2012
except it has 4 wheels...
Sam Oglesby Mar 20, 2012
It's a racing reliant robin
Mark Newfangled Mar 21, 2012
Lemans rules. All lemans racers need to fit a "passenger".
rahp Mar 20, 2012
I wonder why they have two pods instead of centering the driver?
Nick Benz Mar 20, 2012
Technically 8. Thats gotta look mean in the dark
Max Garcia Mar 21, 2012
David I agree with you this delta wing better win or I will be angry and I will crash a Audi lmp1 prototype in nurburing (forza)
Paul Lissona Mar 20, 2012
To completely agree with Carroll, I'm completely into traditional cars, not radical designs.
David Pires-Ihsaan Mar 20, 2012
honestly I think that this car will kill at the 24 hueres of le mans. it is streamlined, has a more fuel-efficient engine and can still keep up the pace of other lmp cars, which means that while other cars are refueling this car will be knocking out lap after lap.. I see two choices: this getting banned from racing, or becoming the new body style for future lmp cars..
Lyomp Mar 20, 2012
i think your right. or if anything they could make their own class or series but i hope this isnt the future of racing. it just doesnt seem right
Christian Carroll Mar 20, 2012
Indycar was very close in selecting the deltawing design as their car design for 2012- very glad they did not. I understand the performance benefits provided by the delta- its just hard to wrap your head around that this is still a "car" and not a rocket ship. I would rather forgo the tech advances to keep a more conventional car look.
Tomas Franquelli Mar 23, 2012
Looks like a badass pinewood derby car...awesome. Haha
Shawn Morris Mar 23, 2012
Looks like the 1989 bat mobile from the side.
David Pires-Ihsaan Mar 20, 2012
looks like a stealth car for gt5... that was a suggestion.
Ceyda Deniz Gurler Mar 20, 2012
it looks like a race version of the batmobil.!!
Max Garcia Mar 21, 2012
Hey the rear looks simple and nice....
David Pires-Ihsaan Mar 20, 2012
