Austrian-based LMP1 team ByKolles has broken its silence regarding its forthcoming Hypercar plans in the fallout of today’s ACO Press Conference.
It has confirmed that it will enter the new Le Mans Hypercar category with its ‘PMC Project LMH’ which will see the team produce multiple hypercars for different purposes (a race car (above, top and bottom), track day car and road car (pictured below)).
The Hypercar which will race is set to use a normally aspirated 700hp V8 engine weighing in at 1040kg including ballast.
In achieving these targets, ByKOLLES Racing says it is confident that the car will have: ‘class-leading performance’.
The PMC Project LMH has been designed entirely in-house at its headquarters in Greding, Germany in about 36 months by a dedicated young team of engineers and designers after 1000s of CFD runs to create an aero concept.
The limited-edition PMC LMH Hypercar production launch is scheduled for the first quarter of 2021. Orders are being accepted from now.
The LMH race version, which like the Glickenhaus Hypercar features a centrally seated driving position, is on schedule to make its debut in 2021.
The confirmation of the ByKolles project should see the car join Glickenhaus and Toyota Gazoo Racing (x 2) plus a grandfathered Oreca-bassed, Alpine-branded LMP1 car form the core of the 2021 top class in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
