A Mag-Racer for Le Mans 2030
The GAMMA concept explores the jump to magnetic levitation racing in the form of a wicked fast hybrid that relies on gasoline to supplement a magnetic engine. On the straightaways, the vehicle hovers on the maglev track at breakneck speeds. Speeds so fast even the wheels need their own individual aerodynamic casings! On the curves, the vehicle makes contact with the ground again. To handle turns at these velocities, each wheels is powered and can turn independently. This gives the vehicle enhanced agility and handling as the angle and rotation of each wheel can be specified by the driver to maximize efficiency and minimize time.
