Cadillac confirms it will build a Hypercar to compete in Le Mans 2023

Cadillac Le Mans Racing

Big news in the world of endurance racing, Cadillac has announced that it’ll build a Hypercar to compete at Le Mans and in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2023. Hurrah!

Cadillac joins Toyota, Glickenhaus, Alpine, Peugeot, Ferrari, Porsche and Audi as confirmed entries so far. This is all getting jolly exciting, isn’t it? The LMH and LMDh convergence is paying off.

As with plenty of other future entries, we’ve only got one sketch of Cadillac’s proposed LMDh-V.R prototype. Pretty wild looking, we think you’ll agree. Things we do know so far though – it’ll be based on a Dallara chassis, with the standardised Hypercar hybrid system connected to a unique Cadillac combustion engine.

Cadillac will run the cars in the top tier of endurance racing with the help of Chip Ganassi Racing and Action Express Racing, and it’ll aim to build on its four recent Daytona 24hrs victories on the bounce.

Should help sell a few CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwings too. We’re all for it…
