Wild Nissan DeltaWing Could Be the Race Car of the Future

Nissan, Michelin, Dan Gurney, Don Panoz, Ben Bowlby, and Chip Ganassi Racing are all working together our project that could be the future of automotive racing called the DeltaWing . This car has a 300 hp Nissan turbocharged 1.6 L four-cylinder engine producing 300 hp and puts more focus on aerodynamics and fuel economy than power.

The car promises much greater fuel economy than similar racecars and is aiming to race at the 24 hours of Le Mans this year. The car will not be eligible for a win, and will be racing as a demonstration vehicle. The driver sits far back in the chassis and the engine sits behind him. With the driver and the heavy engine sitting far back in the chassis, the car is able to use a very narrow front end that looks more like a salt flats racer than a road racing car.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
