LMP3 CARS

The LMP3 is a modern, simple, safe car whose looks resemble those of the prestigious LMP2s and LMP1s Its dimensions are slightly smaller, it is 15 cm shorter but has the same width, and its performance is guaranteed to appeal. The target was for cars to be two seconds faster than the LM GTEs on a normal circuit.

 

The ACO specification prescribes a closed vehicle with a carbon chassis and a metal rollbar, FIA safety standards, an obligatory crash test, a shark’s fin and openings on top of the wheel arches. The ACO have limited the number of LMP3 manufacturers to six and they are; Ginetta, Onroak Automotive, Adess, Riley Tech, Dome  and Norma.

 

Nissan are the sole engine suppliers to the formula, and cars will have identical normally aspirated 420 bhp V8 engines. The engine management system comes from Magneti Marelli, with X-Trac providing the gearboxes. The whole powertrain is sold by Oreca. A single engine will be allowed per car and each one must last 10 000 km without maintenance. A certain number of other common parts will be imposed. The cost for the cars will be €206,000.
