With a rear-mounted engine, the DeltaWing has a strong rearward weight bias, which makes it highly maneuverable, while its light weight and slippery shape make it far more efficient, says Nissan.

Nissan’s goal with the DeltaWing experimental racecar is to explore new technologies for road cars. But it is a racecar, after all, and the Nissan DeltaWing will strut its motorsports stuff for the first time this June at the Le Mans 24 Hours. The automaker’s main contribution to the uniquely designed racecar is a 1.6-L four-cylinder engine employing direct injection and turbocharging. Race-prepared for the 24 Hours, the DIG-T engine produces 300 hp (224 kW) and features the same technology found in Nisan road cars such as the Juke DIG-T. See DeltaWing video here.
