The Ferrari Le Mans Hypercar Race Car Teased, begins testing this summer

The Ferrari LMH (Le Mans Hypercar) gave the new race car its first teasing look, meaning it would be eligible for both the FIA ​​World Endurance Championship Hypercar class and the GTP (Grand Turing prototype) class. IMSA SportsCar Championship.

Ferrari has so far only announced a commitment to the WEC, the highlight of which is 24 Hours of Le Mans, although its LMH may still appear in the Sportscars Championship rounds, such as the Daytona 24 Hours.

Ferrari is developing its LMH in time for the 2023 Motorsport season, the first season where LMH cars will compete with cars designed to meet different LMDh (Le Mans Daytona Hybrid) rules.

Acura, Alpine, Audi (probably), BMW, Cadillac and Porsche are all committed to LMDh, while Glickenhaus, Peugeot, and Toyota are all committed to Ferrari with LMH. Lamborghini also announced in May that it would join the LMDh fold in 2024.

When Ferrari’s LMH 2023 hits the track at 24 Hours of Le Mans, it will be the first time in 50 years that a Ferrari has competed at the top of the French Endurance Classic.

However, Ferrari is not going alone this time. It will partner with AF Corse to promote LMH, the new team will be known as Ferrari – AF Corse. AF Corse currently competes in WEC’s GT class using Ferrari’s GT race car.

Looking at the teaser of Ferrari’s LMH race car, we can see the thin light strips that are probably part of the headlights. Similar design features were unveiled in 2021 in Ferrari’s Daytona SP3 Icona series limited-edition Supercar.

It is possible that the design motif will also appear in a road car inspired by Ferrari’s LMH race car, a model that is expected to act as LaFerrari’s successor. Remember, Ferrari tends to launch a so-called special series model like LaFerrari and the previous Enzo once every decade, and next year LaFerrari will be a decade old. Stay tuned.
