ByKOLLES Is Really Building A 1,000HP Hybrid Le Mans Car That’s Street-Legal

Jan 22, 2021

As we approach the start of the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship season, we’re seeing more and more automakers pull the wraps off of their top-tier race-ready vehicles. And while most of the field is made up of familiar faces — such as the likes of Toyota Gazoo and Glickenhaus — there’s also a new kid on the block this year: ByKOLLES and its PMC Project LMH.

In keeping with FIA requirements, the German-based race team will be building a road-going variant of its WEC entry. Under the hood, it’ll be powered by a V8 much like the one used on the competition car. However, where the LMH Race will be capped at 700hp, the LMH Road will put out a further 300hp — for a total of 1,000hp all in — thanks to the addition of an innovative hybrid electric system. And that’s not all — ByKOLLES also plans on remapping the engine to run on biofuel. But the best part is that without any pesky performance regulations standing in its way, the street-legal LMH will come in some 40kg (88lbs) lighter than the WEC car, with each one weighing 1,000kg (2,205lbs) and 1,040kg (2,293lbs) respectively. Contact ByKOLLES for pricing.
