The Japanese based automaker Nissan and its Motorsport division have recently launched a new video with the Deltawing, explaining the manufacturing process and not only.
After the company has announced in March that the Nissan Deltawing will race this year at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and being caught right after that while it was being tested at the Sebring track, the race car is once again highlighted, this time by Nissan, which has released a new official video with it, explaining its manufacturing process and not only. The Nissan Deltawing is an opened cockpit and the vehicle is actually a lesson for low fuel consumption which doesn’t necessarily has to come from hybrid or diesel powertrains, and a simple downsizing is sometimes enough to do the trick.
The Nissan Deltawing is powered by a 1.6 ltier turbocharged engine with direct injection which is generating a total output of 300 horsepower. The Detlawing weighs 590 kg with a full tank and it will be driven by Mario Franchitti, known from IndyCar, by his brother, Dario Franchitti and Michael Krumm, a FIA GT1 world champion. The Nissan Deltawing will take its final test during the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
