Toyota last week released there latest LeMans car, the TS040 Hybrid, the car which will take the team into the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship and a new era of hybrid powered motorsport.

The new car represents the most advanced hybrid technology in modern racing. Its competition debut will be at the season-opening Six Hours of Silverstone race on 20 April.

Toyota will be taking on rival manufacturers Audi and Porsche with a car that benefits from 480PS (473bhp/353kW) of all-wheel drive hybrid boost in addition to the 520PS (513bhp/383kW) produced by its 3.7-litre V8 petrol engine, taking maximum power to 1,000PS (986bhp/736kW).

As a result of this launch Toyota has taken a look back and released images of their classic and legendary Le Mans challengers inside the Toyota Motorsport GmbH museum.

Nissan reveals their 2014 Le Mans Garage 56 Entry – ZEOD RC – World’s Fastest Electric Racing Car


Nissan ZEOD RC 2014 Le Mans Racer

Nissan has today unveiled its new Garage 56 entry for the 2014 Le Mans race, as we mentioned a few days ago.

The new car called the ZEOD RC, which stands for Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car, is the world’s fastest electric racing car.

The new ZEOD RC does resemble Nissan’s last Garage 56 entry the DeltaWing and there is a reason for this, Nissan has appointed the original designer of the DeltaWing Ben Bowlby as director of Nissan’s Motorsport Innovation.

The Garage 56 entry is an additional spot on the Le Mans 24hr grid created by the organisers, Automobile Club de l’Ouest,  for vehicles that showcase new and innovative technology.

While no exact performance or technical figures have been released as yet, we do know that the electric technology will come from Nissan’s Leaf road car.

So the next 12 months of development and testing will be very interesting to watch in the lead up to the 2014 Le Mans race.
