"BMW M Motorsport is returning to international prototype racing. A LMDh car is being developed for use in the North American IMSA series. From the 2023 season, this car will allow BMW M Motorsport to compete for overall race wins at such prestigious classics as Daytona, Sebring and Road Atlanta"
Michael Scully, BMW Group Designworks Global Automotive Director, said:
“Uniting the iconic elements of BMW M Motorsport design DNA with the performant architecture of an ultra-modern prototype is what this project is all about. The shape of the BMW M LMDh exemplifies the visceral efficiency which is so synonymous with BMW M Motorsport, yet the design process has been highly collaborative between BMW M Motorsport, Dallara, and BMW Group Designworks. Iterating the exterior surfaces with this team is particularly rewarding because each project partner has distinguished expertise in their discipline, yet there’s mutual respect and drive to find a transcendent, cohesive result together. I’m confident this car will be something we can all be proud of, and that the on-track results will reflect the development team’s great dynamic. For me personally, this project represents the synthesis of my professional design experience and life-long immersion in prototype racing at lower echelons as a driver. It’s indeed a dream realized.”
“We need to have a rear wing per the regulations,” (program manager Laura Wontrop Klauser) said. “What we wanted to share with everybody was the vision. That was one of the very early renderings that sold the program in the company and got us excited about it."
