DeltaWing IndyCar Concept

As the officials in IRL are busy finding a replacement for the current Indycar race cars for the next season, an ex-designer of Lola has come up with a new idea!

Presented at the 2010 Chicago Autoshow, it’s the DeltaWing IndyCar which is designed for a cheaper, safer more eco-minded kind of Indy racing series.

Therefore it’s powered by a 300 hp 2.0-literĀ  four-cylinder turbo engine! But at 1,030 lbs, it is really really light, and its shape which look like one of those speed record machines is also very cool.

So down on power it might be, but thanks to the lightweight and bang-on aerodynamic, the designer hopes that his car would go as fast 235 mph! It’s all good, but eco-mentality and motorsport will never create a good couple!
