Cadillac revealed the Project GTP Hypercar that previews the third-generation prototype race car from the American luxury brand. In 2023, Cadillac will contest the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Codeveloped by Cadillac Design, Cadillac Racing and Dallara, the Project GTP Hypercar incorporates key brand design characteristics. Elements of the brand’s heritage such as vertical lighting and floating blades are present throughout and connect the Project GTP Hypercar to the future of Cadillac.
“The Project GTP Hypercar is a unique convergence of form and function and showcases Cadillac’s future performance aesthetic. We have plenty more to come, from the upcoming race car to amazing production vehicles,” said Chris Mikalauskas, lead exterior creative designer, Cadillac.
“Cadillac will be competing again on the world racing stage, and we are all thrilled to return to Le Mans after 20 years. By competing in both the 2023 IMSA and WEC championships, Cadillac Racing has the opportunity to demonstrate its capability, craftsmanship and technology,” said Global Cadillac Vice President Rory Harvey.
Since 2017, Cadillac has been competing at the forefront of American sports car racing in the IMSA manufacturers championship achieving numerous wins, podiums and championships in the Cadillac DPi-V.R. The new race car will be powered by an all-new 5.5L DOHC V-8 that will be paired to the LMDh common hybrid system. Cadillac’s commitment to performance is embodied in the V-Series portfolio. Its recent expansion includes the CT4-V and CT5-V sport sedans, Escalade-V as well as the track-capable CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing. The race car will begin on-track testing in summer 2022 and first race at the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 2023.
