The World’s Strangest Racecar Actually Works

This is the first footage we've seen of the famed DeltaWing racecar on the track and yes, it actually turns. Given the car's microscopic front end, that's something of a surprise.


The DeltaWing has been a media darling for the past few years. We wrote about it two years ago, when it was aiming to be the next IndyCar chassis. Last year we discussed its failure with IndyCar. Here we are, finally, watching the car move under its own power in preparation for this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans.

There's more information on and on

"...and if you don't believe us that this is the future of racing, we called up Polyphony digital and asked if we could simulate our car on their new GT5 engine, they said no...but they did have GT2 hanging around and they said we could have it. Long story short, here is the concrete proof that it will be amazing, im mean just listen to it rev!"
