Default DeltaWing unveils IndyCar concept

This thing is Butt Ugly.....

DeltaWing has unveiled its radical proposal for the future IndyCar Series chassis, which will be introduced in 2012. The new company is one of four contenders for the new design, along with existing supplier Dallara and former Champ Car constructors Lola and Swift.
The DeltaWing programme has generated huge anticipation as it was long-rumoured to be the most radical of the concepts vying for the IndyCar deal, and because it is backed by a number of leading teams, having been designed by Chip Ganassi Racing's Ben Bowlby, formerly Lola's chief designer.
The proposal was officially unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show today, having been in development since January 2009. Its striking shape features an extremely narrow front end and wide rear, and tyres largely enclosed by bodywork. Its unusual body style has been designed specifically to encourage close racing and to minimise aerodynamic disturbance in the car's wake.
DeltaWing chief executive officer Dan Partel believes the car could revitalise American single seater racing if it is accepted by the Indy Racing League.
"Today marks a fundamental shift in how race fans and the general public will view all racing cars in the future; this is a game changer," he said. "This radical prototype takes open wheel racing to a new level from both an engineering standpoint and the overall spectator experience."
The DeltaWing is designed to achieve speeds of 235mph with engines with only half the power and fuel consumption of the current IndyCar Hondas, thanks to a large reduction in weight and aerodynamic drag.
"The first prototype car will be powered by a 2.0 litre four cylinder turbocharged engine," said a DeltaWing statement.
