Faced with rumors that the Le Mans Hypercar prototype powered by Alfa Romeo, James Glickenhaus has cut speculation short: “The basis of our engine will not be Alfa Romeo original. This engine could not reach the required power of 840 hp for 30 hours. A well-known engine manufacturer will develop an engine for us that will meet our performance and durability needs, and which will be of the Glickenhaus brand. ”
The American manufacturer is still working on the construction of its Le Mans Hypercar prototype which will participate in the WEC 2020/2021 season. The timing will not be easy with a first run scheduled for September when the WEC season is due to start on September 5 at Silverstone.
