The Hypercar class has been a bit of a disappointment for us die-hard fans. With only three stables involved, no giant drama has been offered. But with more manufacturers on their way into the royal class, brighter times are ahead. One of those who joins is the American brand Cadillac.
Now the new prototype has been revealed. The Cadillac Project GTP Hypercar, as the car is called, will participate both in the American sports car series IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, but above all in the larger international series World Endurance Championship (WEC).
The WEC consists of six races, including the legendary 24-hour race at Le Mans in France.
Cadillac’s Deputy Chief is enthusiastic to return to European soil after a long hiatus:
“Cadillac will once again compete on the world stage, and we are all happy to return to Le Mans after 20 years,” said Rory Harvey in a statement.
Cadillacs nya racerbil will be powered by a brand new 5.5-liter V8 that will be mated to the Le Mans Daytona hybrid (LMDh) class standard hybrid system. This means that we can expect a system effect of 670 horsepower.
Since 2017, Cadillac has been at the forefront of the motorsport scene on American soil. In the long-distance series IMSA where they have picked great success. At the top of the merit list is, of course, the series victory. Cadillac has taken it home as a designer three times – 2017, 2018 and 2021.
In addition, they have taken home an impressive four straight victories at Daytona 24-hour, the also legendary race that many see as the start of the racing season.

Now a lot of tests are waiting this summer before the Cadillac Project GTP is finally shown in action. It will take place only at the beginning of next year in the aforementioned Daytona 24-hour.
