Everything about leaked BMW M LMDH

A taste of the future.

In the run-up to the 2021 Petit Le Mans, where the BMW M LMDh will compete for overall wins beginning in 2023, BMW M Motorsport unveiled design concepts that teased what’s to come. BMW M Motorsport and BMW Group Designworks collaborated closely to design these.

With the BMW M LMDh, BMW M Motorsport is returning to international prototype racing in the top class and on the big stage. The new vehicle will compete in the new GTP class of the IMSA series beginning in the 2023 season, in such important classics as the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and the historic Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The BMW V12 LMR won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1999, which was the final major win for a BMW prototype. In the same season, the vehicle had also won the 12 Hours of Sebring. LMDh racing vehicles must feature both a combustion engine and an electric motor, according to the rules. The electric motor, battery, and gearbox are all standard pieces, even though each manufacturer may use their own combustion engine. An external partner also constructs the chassis. BMW M Motorsport is collaborating with Dallara, a famed Italian racing car manufacturer, on this project.

A single aim binds them together.

The two prototype vehicles’ chassis are being manufactured in partnership with Dallara, a world-renowned and successful manufacturer. The Italian designers are among the world’s most successful racing car makers. The deal with Dallara was struck in September 2021, few months after BMW M Motorsport declared that it would be joining the class. The first test vehicle is being developed in Italy, with BMW M Motorsport engineers and a team of Dallara engineers established specifically for the BMW M LMDh project working closely together.
