Panoz (the company that will assemble the vehicle) has not released the powerplant details, only telling us that it will deliver 600 hp and a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft (800 Nm). Judging by the figures, we expect the engine to be a forced-induction unit.
The vehicle will also use a structure that features a proprietary layout and innovative materials. Dubbed REAMS (Recyclable Energy Absorbing Matric System), this uses a multi-layer composite system which promises to be lighter than carbon fiber yet equally strong, while also being dent-resistant, shatter-proof and recyclable.
In addition to that, the supercar will feature TRIFECTACOOLING technology, which means that the vehicle will not only use a standard radiator, but also stage 2 and stage 3 systems that lower coolant temperature on both the inflow to and the outflow from the radiator.
But Panoz will offer more than just a car with the Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans, it will offer a complete experience, as the company will only (hand-)build 81 examples of the vehicle, with every unit linked to a specific edition of the Le Mans 24 Hour Race.
The delivery ceremony for each example of the car will take place at Le Mans, where customers will receive a driving training on the Bugatti Circuit at Le Mans. Subsequently, owners will be invited to the famous race as guests, being given the opportunity to drive a parade lap on the full circuit before the race.
We are waiting for Panoz to release additional details of the car (including pricing).
