LaFerrari LMP1 Racer Rendering Is Gorgeous, Like Ferrari’s Potential Le Mans Return

We’ve declared ourselves non-fans of the styling contemporary Ferrari have adopted and yet a rendering showing a LaFerrari Le Mans racer such as the one above can bring us to our knees. This is simply stunning. You know what else would be stunning? The Prancing Horse returning to the king LMP1 class.

The aero works would require quite a bit of work here and there to make the design competitive on the Circuit de la Sarthe, but we get the picture rendering. This is the creation of Daniel Pelligra, a young man studying architecture in Siracusa. Twelve hours of driving away, we find Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello, a place where somebody is reportedly thinking about bringing the brand back to Le Mans.

Sure, Ferrari has factory teams playing the endurance game, but, like we said, we’re talking LMP1 here. Earlier this year, rumors of a Ferrari return were reignited, but this is one of the few topics that sees Italian people being completely silent.

Should the Horse be Prancing back to Le Mans, don’t expect the move to take place next year. Ferrari has previously stated that the new regulations are appealing to them and that they could return, but the rules are set to expire in 2016 and the investment wouldn’t be worth it.

As we reported, Ferrari is keen to cut its CO2 emissions and since their street car turbo return has already happened, the endurance play would help them with achieving this goal.

As for what this would mean for Ferrari’s F1 program, only the racing gods must know. Some helmet users said the Italian’s return to Le Mans would be synonym to a pause in their F1 quest. Nonetheless, Ferrari currently has an uninterrupted F1 history, something you really don't want to break.

We think we may have heard a giggle over in Zuffenhausen.
