The new project race car will be led by Nismo and will follow up on the DeltaWing experimental race car that competed in last year’s Le Mans race. Nissan President and Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn hinted that a new approach to innovation and excitement will be the project’s core, and confirmed that the automaker will return as the “Garage 56” entry for innovative concepts with an all-new race car featuring electric technology.
