Nissan is beginning a series of videos that will chronicle the step-by-step development of the Deltawing, an experimental racecar project.

The video below, is the first in the series and features the car’s preparations before, during and after its 3000 mile trip to the Windshear wind tunnel facility in Charlotte, North Carolina in the U.S.

The Deltawing is scheduled for its European test to begin next week in preparation for its debut at the Le Mans 24 hour race in June. The vehicle will be competing outside race classifications.

It uses a Nissan sourced 1.6-litre DIG-T (Direct Injection Gasoline – Turbocharged) engine that generates 300hp (224 kW / 304 PS) and will feature technology that will eventually find its way into the brand’s street legal cars.
