Tesla T1 Concept For 24 Hours of Le Mans

Developed for the Michelin Design Challenge 2017, the goal consisted in create a ready to race, winning machine for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Tesla T1 is the creation of a team of designers, that imagined a 2030 Tesla racing car good enough for the Le Mans 24 Hour race. The concept proposal was build up around the idea of using an unlimited power resource as the wind. From this point, everything took up shape starting from the four wheels: they had to serve as energy recovery systems taking advantage of Le Mans average speeds per lap and without depending only in braking regeneration as nowadays. The T1 has four air turbines integrated in the wheels, which are able to redirect the air through specific points crucial in the design: a fifth wind turbine in the body and the rear diffuser.
