As you probably already know, Cadillac has a fairly serious racing pedigree, which it has cemented over the past few decades. Whether it’s endurance r or Cadillac has been kicking ass in the upper echelons of motorsport, and now, according to an announcement made by the company on Wednesday, it’s back at it with a new prototype.
The Project GTP racer will compete in the IMSA GTP class and make its racing debutfor the 2023 running of the Daytona 24. As is required for the class the car will be a hybrid, with its internal combustion bits developed by Caddy and its chassis and hybrid components developed by engineering firm Dallara.
We don’t know a great deal about it and likely won’t until it gets an official debut this summer, but thanks to a teaser video posted by Cadillac, we do know that Project GTP looks and sounds just about as angry as anyone could hope for.
Now, if we were in the wild-ass speculation business, we’d hazard a guess that Project GTP will — in classic GM racecar fashion — be powered by some particularly potent pushrod-actuated V8, and the sound clip seems to bear that out. Beyond that, it’s anyone’s guess.
