More Details Come In On The Le Mans 2020 'Hypercar Class'

Very road car-like, right? This is the Nissan R390 in wind tunnel testing.

What got reaffirmed is that the FIA is framing this new class as prototype race cars with road car looks, but it’s serious about those looks. “Aerodynamics cannot take precedence over aesthetics,” the FIA’s press release today states, in its own dedicated line.
Oddly enough, I think the agenda will result in more aerodynamic cars, be it will less down-force possibly. I have not read the rules, only the article.

The manufacturers involved in these talks so far have been Toyota, McLaren, Aston Martin, Ferrari and Ford.
Is this future racing class responsible for giving us the McLaren Speedtail?
