Speedy Showcase: Cadillac Announces GTP Hypercar

Detroit, Michigan – The recently announced Cadillac Project GTP Hypercar is set to compete in next endurance driving competitions in Daytona and Le Mans, much to the excitement of Cadillac fans the world over.

Beyond a marketing term, Hypercars are a category in the FIA World Endurance Championship, a yearly racing competition. According to the International Automobile Federation (FIA), they are prototype sports cars with an estimated lap time of 3:30.00 and a rear-axle hybrid system. Because of their experimental nature, only FIA-certified silver, gold and platinum drivers may compete in these vehicles.

Its black aesthetic is more than visuals too, with many of the vehicle’s components like its engine cover and rear diffuser being assembled from carbon fiber. Even by hypercar standards, the GTP Hypercar totes a sharp, aggressive design. Visually, the only real difference between the Batmobile and the GTP is the lack of weapons poking out from every panel.

“The Project GTP Hypercar is a unique convergence of form and function and showcases Cadillac’s future performance aesthetic,” said Chris Mikalauskas, Cadillac’s lead exterior creative designer. “We have plenty more to come, from the upcoming race car to amazing production vehicles.”
