I'm surprised at their cost estimates...
1.2mm roller
.450 hybrid spline
Engine?
Bespoke body?
I think our LMH will be less costly with much lower running costs...

That was my first thought. Say conservative 2 million for the car but what's the design and bodywork budget?

For 6 million they get yours and a couple little races as well.

Including spares, rebuilds, and full post racing rebuild. We're including
all costs including drivers..

Yet IMSA has said, well no thanks. But they did to Panoz as well with the GT4. Still ridiculous they had it in the paddock for Petit a few years back but not in the track at all.

Interesting comments from Doonan about being interested now in Hypercar possibly running. Wonder what they would do though

It looks good but it is not as cute as the 1998 911 Gt1, the most beautiful of all the winners !!!


EDIT - Hondafan37 - I've removed your image link as it didn't work and was taking up a huge amount of horizontal space. You may wish to edit it and upload it as an attachment instead. Aysedasi

For me the 1998 911 GT1 is the most beautiful Le Mans winner in history.
I expected or hope that the new Hypercars (LMH or LMDH) look like this.

There were loads of great looking cars from that era. As long as the new hypercars look an evolution of the current cars, I can see no problem with their looks

I would say that LMDh is a good regulations that's comparable to Hypercar, but I'm hoping that both regulations would be equally-matched in terms of performance and costs. Now if only LMDh is adopted by the likes of Super GT and/or DTM...

BTW, since Alpine is using Rebellion cars for next year, I feel that they're suitable for LMDh, not Hypercar.

One last thing, I wonder if there will be engine restrictions (piston or rotary-based) unless it was already answered?

As far I know, at the moment dp can use bespoke engines or road/gt3 derivated ones since it's bop that balances torque curve, power and stint lenght.
The only restrictions are about displacement and layout, at example turbo engines can be V6 or L4 but not V8 while NA engines can't be over 5.5L. These rules are not carved on stone of course and can be changed in a few seconds.

About hypercar, well be prepared to a bop hell during next years since will be a nightmare to keep hybrid toyota and peugeot, not hybrid glickenhaus and mild hybrid dpi in the same performance range
