Question Nissan 1.5ltr 3 Cyl=400 HP, 280 TQ

Block weighs 88 pounds. It's going in the Zeod Delta Wing like the one you saw at Rolex @ Daytona.

Nissan says it will rev to 7,500 rpm. “Nissan will become the first major manufacturer to use a three-cylinder engine in major international motorsport,” says Darren ***, Nissan’s global motorsport director.

The car is designed so it can run a full lap under electric power before the gas-powered DIG-T R engine takes over.

Nissan wants to enter the LM P1 class at Le Mans in 2015, and the lessons learned from this experimental vehicle — which will occupy “Garage 56″ at the race — will be used in the development of that entry. The ZEOD, which stands for Zero Emissions on Demand, hit the track for the first time in mid-January, following extensive dyno testing for both the gas and electric motors. Both powerplants run through the same 5-speed transmission. The car doesn’t perform like a conventional hybrid vehicle with the electric motor taking over as needed. Instead, energy recaptured energy runs the electric motor for a full lap over the 8.47-mile Circuit de la Sarthe once during each fuel stint, which last about one hour. Top speed during the lap is expected to be over 180 mph.
