Nissan unveils 1.5L 400hp for Le Mans 24 Hours

The ZEOD RC will become the first entry in the Le Mans 24 Hours to complete a lap of the Circuit de la Sarthe under nothing but electric power in June. A single lap of each stint (a fuel stint lasts approximately one hour) will be electric powered, then the new Nissan DIG-T R 1.5 liter three-cylinder turbo engine will take over.

The small engine weighs 40 kilograms (88lbs) and produces 400 horsepower. The base engine is only 500mm tall x 400mm long x 200mm wide. While the engine is technically too heavy to take as carry-on luggage on a plane, it would easily fit inside the luggage guides seen at major airports around the world.

Revving to 7,500rpm, the DIG-T R produces 380Nm of torque. At a ratio of 10 horsepower per kilogram, the new engine actually has a better power-to-weight ratio than the new engines to be used in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship this year.
