Tao Ni's ‘Le Mans 2030’ project won the jury of the Michelin Challenge Design competition and it cannot be said that his ‘Infiniti Le Mans 2030’ is in the current LMDh or Le Mans Hypercar movement.
“The 24 Hours of Le Mans takes place all day and in all weathers”said Tao Ni when he returned his copy. "I think this is a great opportunity to introduce autopilot to the world of racing. I would like to give the possibility of driving the car manually during the day, then transforming the vehicle by activating the autopilot mode during the night. This will make the Le Mans race more uncertain, much more exhilarating and safer. ”
No matter how much you like innovation, we still hope that in 10 years the drivers will still ride at night.
In order to reduce the size of the batteries, Tao Ni used graphene technology with the added bonus of a rapid battery change system. The design of the wheels is inspired by atomic structures. These have an auxiliary wire connected to the inside of the smallest tire, giving the car support when cornering and better speed in a straight line.
