Cadillac has provided further teasers to the design of its LMDh-V.R prototype ahead of its debut in the FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship next year.
The luxury automaker released Wednesday updated renders as well as a video of the car.
As announced last year, the car is being developed in conjunction with chassis supplier Dallara and is slated to begin on-track testing this summer ahead of the car’s race debut in the GTP class of the WeatherTech Championship and the Hypercar class in the WEC in 2023.
A previous rendering of the car featured no rear wing, which is prohibited in LMDh regulations. The latest renders show a rear wing attached.
“While the new race car will take into account IMSA and ACO regulations, Cadillac’s brand characteristics will be instantly recognizable, many of which are seen on our V-Series vehicles today,” said Chris Mikalauskas, lead exterior creative designer, Cadillac.
“It will artistically combine form and function to influence the development of the forthcoming race car. Elements of Cadillac’s brand DNA, such as vertical lighting and floating blades, will be present throughout.”
Cadillac Vice President Rory Harvey added: “Cadillac has a long history of performance success on and off the track which drives excitement for our fans and customers.
“That excitement was never more evident than last year when we saw extraordinary demand for the V-Series Blackwings right after they were revealed.”
Cadillac has a number of production cars in its V-Series portfolio, having recently expanded the lineup to include the CT4-V and CT5-V sport sedans, the Escalade-V and the track-capable CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing.
