BMW unveils first teaser of its LMDh race car


BMW has unveiled the LMDh prototype that the brand is preparing for the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

BMW is back in motorsport. A few months ago, the German manufacturer announced its intention to join the “Le Mans Daytona Hybrid” class from 2023. Development work on the race car is underway and in a new video released by BMW Motorsport, we are offered a preview of the future racing car.

Unsurprisingly, the front of the LMDh prototype takes up the imposing grille with the double bean. BMW designers also provided the prototype with a huge front spoiler and lots of aero elements that will help stick the car on the track. This image also shows the prototype with prominent LED headlights.

The teaser finally shows that the prototype will have very pronounced wheel arches and a narrow cockpit. Other items visible in this teaser are a roof scoop, aerodynamic mirrors and a large rear spoiler. In short, no doubt, it’s a racing car.

Coming soon?

BMW will enter two prototypes in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship which will use a chassis developed by Dallara. The first test car will be built at the Dallara plant in Italy by engineers from BMW M Motorsport and engineers from Dallara. She is expected to make her track debut at the Varano circuit in 2022.

Dallara is one of the four companies authorized to manufacture chassis for this competition series, along with ORECA, Multimatic and Ligier. BMW has yet to reveal details of the powertrain its car will use, but it will undoubtedly be hybrid.
