Cadillac is throwing its hat into the brand new 2023 IMSA GTP class with a brand new prototype dubbed Challenge GTP. This race automobile will mark the model’s return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans after a two-decade absence.
The Dallara-based prototype will probably be powered by a brand new Cadillac engine paired to the frequent hybrid system mandated by the GTP class, which can welcome earlier entries from Le Mans Hypercar (LMH) and Le Mans Daytona h (LMDh, beforehand DPi) to a single, tier-one prototype racing class.
“Whereas the brand new race automobile will consider IMSA and ACO laws, Cadillac’s model traits will probably be immediately recognizable, a lot of that are seen on our V-Sequence autos in the present day,” mentioned Chris Mikalauskas, lead exterior inventive designer, Cadillac. “It’s going to artistically mix kind and performance to affect the event of the forthcoming race automobile. Components of Cadillac’s model DNA, akin to vertical lighting and floating blades, will probably be current all through.”
The ultimate Cadillac GTP automobile will probably be proven this summer time, however it will not hit the monitor till the 2023 Rolex 24 at Daytona.
