BMW has announced the LMDh prototype that it is preparing for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2023. A few months ago, the German automaker announced plans to join endurance racing from 2023. Work on the racing car continues. A new video released by BMW Motorsport gives fans of the brand a glimpse of the car.

The front of the LMDh prototype is dominated by a pair of massive radiator grilles with purple accents. BMW designers have also provided the prototype with a massive front splitter to help anchor it to the race track. This image also features a prototype with sharp LED headlights.

The teaser also shows that the prototype will have pronounced irregularities in the front and rear wheels and a narrow cabin. Other elements include a roof scoop, aerodynamic mirrors and a large rear wing.

BMW will present two prototypes at the championship, which will use a chassis manufactured by Dallara. The first test car will be built at the Dallara plant in Italy by BMW M Motorsport engineers and Dallara specialists before it makes its track debut at the Varano circuit in 2022.

Dallara is one of four companies allowed to produce chassis for this series, along with ORECA, Multimatic and Ligier. BMW has yet to reveal details of the powertrain its race car will use.
