Hailed as this generation’s most revolutionary and exciting motorsport project, the Nissan DeltaWing - an experimental racecar powered by Nissan 1.6-litre DIG-T engine technology - is due to be raced at Le Mans 24 Hours (16-17 June).

Nissan say they want to change the face of motor racing for ever. The Nissan DeltaWing will be powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, featuring direct petrol injection and a turbocharger. It also has half the aerodynamic drag of a conventional racer, and is surprisingly lightweight.

Not only is its technology pioneering, but its design is pretty swish-looking, too. The driver sits almost over the rear axle of the car, which has a strong rearward weight bias, making it incredibly manoeuvrable.

We've compiled a small image gallery of the Nissan DeltaWing below - what do you think? Will it change the sport forever? Do you think it has an ejector seat like the Batmobile? Let us know in the comments section below.
