Peugeot reveals first images of radical 9X8 Le Mans Hypercar

.

I thought this was interesting with all the talk about downforce lately.



Peugeot reveals first images of radical 9X8 Le Mans Hypercar

https://www.autosport.com/wec/news/p...ercar/6626576/

Quote:
The absence of a rear wing on the French manufacturer's new Le Mans Hypercar, christened the 9X8, was described as "a major innovative step" by Jean-Marc Finot, motorsport boss of Peugeot parent company Stellantis.

"We have achieved a degree of aerodynamic efficiency that allows us to do away with this feature," he explained on the launch of the car on Tuesday.

"Don't ask me how, though! We have every intention of keeping that a secret for as long as we possibly can."

Olivier Jansonnie, technical director of the WEC programme at Peugeot Sport near Paris, said: "The new LMH regulations were drawn up to level out the importance of conventional performance-boosting systems.

"The greater flexibility allowed by the sport’s new technical rules regarding aerodynamics permits radical new thinking that favours the emergence of innovative cars, with scope for the design [styling] teams to make an even bigger contribution.

"Peugeot's engineers and designers effectively took advantage of this opportunity to invent new creative processes and break away from established codes to produce a [Le Mans] Hypercar of a completely new genre."

The LMH regulations are less prescriptive than their LMP1 predecessors and instead lay down performance windows, including targets for maximum downforce and minimum drag, into which the cars must fit.

That's a lot of tail light for a race car.

For a 24-hour race, it's not bad to have all those lights. On a sidenote, who knows if a street-legal version could be released as a halo-car for Peugeot...

IMHO it's obvious on it's face. The feature that supplants the wing is a spoon-shaped concavity. Reminds me of the Aston Martin Valkyrie's rear diffuser.
