It's car with airbrakes, who cares about the rest of the details
Hot on the heels of its recent leccy racing car announcement, Swiss car maker Green GT has unveiled designs for its next-generation Le Mans Prototype (LMP) racer that could also, potentially, become a road car. green_gt_LMPE2011_04 Green GT's LMPE2011: sexy and leccy Designed by a team of students from the International …
the guys that designed this beast have clearly not read the ACO rule book that defines what a LMP 1 or LMP 2 car is. If they get an entry, and present that thing for scrutineering in June 2011, an early bath will follow........ approximately as soon as the scrutes clap eyes on it. Where shall I start ? Moving aerodynamic devices (air brakes), bodywork not covering the cars mechanical components and I suspect their wee mockup probably only has a single central seat under that bublle.
More likely that it is merely an attempt to grab some publicity before serving up something rather more conventional.
It would make for an Interesting Company Car, for the Driver may be a Prime Technology Mover/BetaTest Pilot.

Does Bugatti Sponsor a Veyron and Enigmatic Customer Driver because of a Mutually Beneficial Semantic Singularity of Greater Purpose? Let the Car Deliver ITs Real Potential with a Virtualising Presence/AI BetaTest Pilot/Alien Program.

For those of you who are red necks or live in deer country... There's this little device that you attach to the front of your car. As you drive, the air flow causes a small shrill whistle to blow. I guess you could change it up a bit and end up with something you could call a screaming banshee.
OK, it looks hot, but there is NO WAY any driver would want to compete in this - it was crafted by a school of design, not a school of engineering. SURE it looks good (did I say that already?!?), but it probably not had a whole lot of thought about crash resistance, rules, or even basic aerodynamic performance at 150+ mph.
But intersting marketing ploy - try to link it to Le Mans to generate some heat, then sell flacidly driving production cars (or even "prototypes") to people with too much money and too little sense...
LMP, how is that pronounced, limp? So this would be the Limp e-2011 then. Sorry, e-cars will be more than toys when they are actually useful for something more than a gee-whiz demo. Yeah, LeMans, that's a useful comparison for those of us who drive for a day straight as fast as possible. How about 20 minutes at 80 mph, 40 minutes of stop-n-go followed by 8-12 hours of sitting, repeat twice each day for a week, recharge. I'll make it easy, recharge every two cycles. What, nobody would watch? Too boring? Welcome to reality, that would be First Life for you residents of Sadville.
Oh, don't get me started on the silly, and soon to be broken, h-air-brained brake flapperons. What, regenerative braking not allowed?
Now about that "Simply Pants" icon.
