The various manufacturers are taking advantage of the week of 24 hours of Le Mans to present or talk about their future prototypes. This is the case of Ferrari which on the eve of the 90th edition has unveiled a first shot of its future prototype which will take place in the Hypercar category from next season.
50 years later… We’re coming back!

This announcement is no coincidence, because it comes 49 years to the day and hour to hour, after the last arrival of a Ferrari in the premier class at Le Mans :
“June 10, 1973, 4 p.m. The checkered flag was waved during the last 24 Hours of Le Mans in which Ferrari was entered in the premier class. 49 years after that date, Ferrari unveils the first details of the Le Mans Hypercar which will compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship from 2023. The car, which will begin its first development tests in the coming weeks, shows strong references to the stylistic characteristics that distinguish the models in the Prancing Horse range.
Just over a year from the centenary edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2023, the countdown to the appointment with history, fifty years after this last participation, has officially begun. »
The Italian clan has chosen to present only one simple preview of the front panel of his prototype. The development of the car competing with the Toyota GR010 and the Peugeot 9X8 is asleep and already entrusted to theAF Corse team. It will be necessary to be all the more patient to know the name, the engine or even other details which frame the machine which will answer the LMH regulations.
