Glickenhaus 007 LMH (Le Mans Hypercar): 3.5L Twin-Turbo V8 Sound in Action at Monza!
Mar 7, 2021
I’m not sure if in these last weeks I’ve received more requests for a new binaural video or to try and record the new Glickenhaus race car testing here in Monza a couple of days ago. Anyway at the moment I want to satisfy your second request. This two-days session was just the second test the 007 did after a first shakedown at Vallelunga last week and, for what I saw, everything went very very well.
This car will be Glickenhaus Racing’s weapon for the whole 2021 World Endurance Championship season, which includes the 24h Le Mans race too, and it has been built to fit in the new ‘Le Mans Hypercar’ class. FIA and ACO expect these cars to lap ‘La Sarthe’ in around 3’30”, which is 15 seconds slower than the old LMP1s and 5 seconds slower than LMP2s (but these prototypes will already have 40 hp less in 2021 compared to previous seasons, so lap times are expected to increase for them too).
The Glickenhaus 007 LMH is powered by a bespoke engine built and developed by French company Pipo Motours, famous for their history of engine manufacturers for WRC, rallycross and hillclimb cars. It’s a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with flat-plane cranckshaft with a max power output not over 500 kW/670hp, as per rules. The car must also have a minimum weight of 1,030 kg. In this project there are other important companies involved such as the Italian Podium Advanced Technologies, which assembles and designed the car, Sauber which takes care of the aerodynamic part and Joest Racing which helps in the development of the 007.
The confirmed drivers of the two 007 LMHs for the 2021 season are Romain Dumas, Ryan Briscoe, Gustavo Menezes, Olivier Pla, Pipo Derani, Richard Westbrook and Franck Mailleux. Watch it in action around Monza Circuit driven by Pipo Derani, Romain Dumas and Ryan Briscoe!
