Here are some of the very first pictures of the new SMP Racing, Paulo Cantone designed, BR01 Nissan LMP2 Coupe, just unveiled here at Paul Ricard.
The car will not run today as it is still waiting for some essential parts, including bodywork and electronics, designer Paolo Cantone making it clear that his immediate order of priority was getting the car completed, then completing the homologation process then ensuring that there was enough time for some shakedown testing before committing to racing the car at Silverstone.
Cantone confirmed that three cars are in build, two for the race programme (full season ELMS and Le Mans) with the third likely to undertake testing duties whilst remaining available for sale.
