Lamborghini gives a light preview of its LMDh

The development of the Lamborghini LMDh is in full swing. Expected in IMSA and WEC from 2024, the prototype was slightly shown in a short video on social networks.

“Our LMDh project is growing, even if this is only a model. These images are from the wind tunnel where we tested the car at speed. Stay tuned « , indicates the Italian manufacturer on its Instagram account in the caption of a video to be found below.

In line with ACO and IMSA regulations, the Lamborghini will feature an internal combustion power unit – an in-house twin-turbo V8 – mated to an energy recovery system generic to all LMDhs. The combined power will be 500 kW (approx. 680 hp). This is the first time that a thermal powertrain will be fully developed by the motorsport department of the Taurus brand, Squadra Corse.  » It is a pure racing engine, but we develop it with a clear architecture in order to be able to reuse it in the near future. We always see motorsport as a laboratory of ideas for the future “Explained Giorgio Sanna, director of Lamborghini Squadra Corse.

The Iron Lynx team which will be in charge of the technical exploitation of the Sant’Agata Bolognese prototype. “The timing is very tight, recently told us Andrea Piccini, the team principal of the transalpine team. We started the project 7-8 months ago. The car is still in development. We are at the end of the “engineering” part, so we expect to see the car on track fairly soon. But it will never be soon enough for that. The necessary development is so important. We saw it and we still see it with the other manufacturers who had problems for their debut. I think that we should also expect to encounter this kind of misadventure during our debut. »
