DeltaWing Back on Track With Mazda Power

Sep 16, 2013

Nissan’s DeltaWing racer, a combination of a Bonneville land speed rocket car and a Batman Returns–era Batmobile, had a harsh 2012, testing its crash worthiness more than its appetite for speed. One of the skirmishes was with the Toyota TS030 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Don Panoz, a principal in the car, has started an engine project based on the tried-and-proven Mazda MRZ. The program uses twin turbos to pump out a reported 345 hp. Look for the freshened Nissan at select American Le Mans Series Races in 2013.

Marcel Lech used to think 450 hp was all he needed to enjoy his Supra. Instead, he ended up with nearly 1,000 hp that, at best, gets used, weather permitting, only a few of days and just 2 seasons out of the year.

A hot front-wheel-drive, turbocharged hatch that comes with the right kind of balance: not as "grown up" as a VW GTI, but not as aesthetically loud as a Civic Type R.
