    I think they are trying to mimic the Nissan ideaology with having all the aero be inside the bodywork, hence no rear wing.

    I like that it looks like a concept/movie car, regardless of if it's aesthetically pleasing.

    I like it. I do have some questions, though:

    How do you pronounce her name? I don't think it was christened with an anglophone audience in mind.
    I've watched the intro video, so why wasn't the 206 WRC invited? That's one of the most iconic Peugeots racecars of all time.
    How do they fit The DRS into that little wing? How are they going pass other cars?

    ‘Nine-ecks-eight’ I suppose.

    The Hypercar class is allowed underbody aero, so there might be some ground effectsy-type thing going on underneath.

    And while this race car looks complete, I suspect the race version we eventually see on the grid will include things that revert back to more conventional aerodynamics.

    Peugeot's tongue more firmly planted.

    Is it possible this is the "road car" version, and they're being cheeky and when the car actually hits Le Mans, we see a wing?

    Here's a video with a bit of educated speculation on various elements seen in the car.



    One thing it does fail to mention is the purpose of that wide concave section between the diffuser and the trailing edge of the rear spoiler (not a wing). The car looks like it pumps air from the inside edge of the rear wheels to 'fill' that cavity, possibly supplied by the big scoops next to the cockpit, thus reducing drag and providing airflow to create downforce. A similar concept is seen on the Lotus Evija.

    And I have firmed on my hypothesis that the car will not see a race track in this exact guise. Some of those fiddly finny-bits in the nose have to go, plus those sharp edges will create heaps of drag (unless they're there on purpose, in order to meet the aero efficiency targets).

    The car certainly has tongues wagging. If they get it to a track without added spoilers in the vicinity of the rear bodywork then they will have achieved something remarkable.

    The ACO dropped the requirement for a road car. I don't believe Peugeot has shown any indication of making a road version.

    Agreed. Actually it’s not really that ‘unpleasing’ to me.
