ByKolles Racing has reaffirmed plans to build a Le Mans Hypercar, having taken the wraps off the PMC Project LMH, which is slated to debut in the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship season.

The Austrian-flagged LMP1 team will build three versions of the car, including a 700-horsepower V8-powered racer (pictured) that will compete in the LMH class as a non-hybrid.

While full technical details have yet to be released, the constructor states that it will weigh in at 1040 kg.

“The innovative PMC Project LMH has been designed entirely in-house at its headquarters in Greding, Germany in about 36 months by a dedicated young team of engineers and designers,” a statement from ByKolles read.

“The sleek aerodynamic lines are the result of 1000s of runs of CFD.”

ByKolles will join Toyota Gazoo Racing and Glickenhaus on the grid with LMH cars next year, followed by Peugeot in 2022.

The privateer outfit plans to make the PMC Project LMH available in track day and road car configurations as well, with the road car to include a hybrid system to meet the design target of 1:1 kg to hp.

ByKolles has not confirmed details of the race car engine beyond its power output, although company owner Dr. Colin Kolles told Sportscar365 earlier this year that it plans to retain the Gibson V8 unit currently found in its ENSO LMP1 challenger.
