These are used race cars In the first category of the World Endurance Championship starting in the 2021 season. The old LMP1 concept cars were replaced by these new, essentially hybrid cars.
The new rules stipulate that supercars can be either racing versions of existing road cars or prototypes specifically designed to race in the top category of the World Endurance Championship (WEC). Many have seized the opportunity to carve out an important space for themselves in this category which also has serious implications for the ultra-luxury segment. The performance of some cars is the most interesting aspect. These are monsters that have been worked on over hours and hours In the wind tunnel to achieve performance for the strong hearts.
Unlike Formula 1, there is almost complete freedom of expression in the World Endurance Championship. Engineers can unleash their imagination, and it is in this building that the 777 Hyperca project was created and developed.r, a race car intended for track use developed by the Italian manufacturer 777 Motors. It is a house founded by Andrea Levy, a well-known face among those who frequent the Milan Monza Motor Show. There will also be space for the new Lamborghini race car.
Features of the 777 hypercar
This is an extreme car in every detail. The monocoque is made of carbon fiber and has already been approved by the FIA. In fact, it is manufactured by Dallara, which is already the official chassis supplier for the LMDh class of the World Endurance Championship, which has also been certified by the BMW M Hybrid V8 and Cadillac V-Series R. The assembly of the car is also the work of Dallara. Specialists. Under the hood is a 4.5-liter naturally aspirated V8, courtesy of Gibson Technology, capable of firing up to 800 hp at 9000 rpm in “push to pass” mode.
The car weighs very little, reaching 900 kg. The most romantic aspect of the 777 Hypercar is that it does not have any electrified parts in the engine. We opted for a naturally aspirated V8 which, however, Which allows it to reach a maximum speed of 370 km/h. The 8-cylinder engine is powered by synthetic fuel, allowing for a 65% reduction in emissions compared to conventional fuel. We will see something similar in the future also in the top category of motorsport.

The car’s technology is impressive. Everything is designed to reach the peaks on the track with the help of artificial intelligence. The system, promoted in collaboration with the Polytechnic of Milan, is called AI Racing Virtual Coaching and ensures the driver has access to all telemetry data and driving objectives in real time during the flight cycle. Moreover, there are also biometric sensors to monitor the pilot’s parameters Such as heart rate, saturation, and body temperature. It will not arrive before 2026.
