Deltawing Coupe

DeltaWing Racing Cars is pressing ahead on development not just with its well known revolutionary open-top version, but also is revealing a Coupe version that will premiere this week at Sebring International Raceway. The coupe version of the DeltaWing features a new tub and wider driver greenhouse, among other new elements, to comply with the new 2014 LMP1 regulations. The car will debut in the American Le Mans Series later this year, possibly as early as at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in May. Besides the new hard-top configuration, the car is set to be fitted with a new engine designed and built by Elan Motorsports Technologies. On the current open-top DeltaWing, the team has updated its engine to a 2.0L turbocharged aluminum block for racing in LMP1.

“As the season goes forward, and we incorporate the new tub and new chassis with the new 2014 rules, and new engine, we think as with any new program that it will continue to improve in performance,” said Dr. Don Panoz, managing partner, DeltaWing Racing Cars.
