Hi everyone, I am a new member of this forum but have been lurking around for several years, and I recently thought, "What if I had millions of dollars to build the ultimate circuit-based racing car?" I refer to this mad car as Project IU (Imagination Unleashed).

Vehicle Automotive design Aircraft Airplane Art


Jaw Triangle Automotive design Art Font


Essentially, it is a 9G+ cornering, 550+ kph, 0-100 kph in less than 1 second, 2680 hp, 4800 Nm, electric-hydrogen (8 Koenigsegg Quark motors, 2 per wheel + 2 Viritech Apricale graphene hydrogen pressure vessels), ground effect based racing car, but it is all designed via existing state of the art hypercar/motorsport technologies, and I am working on the CAD, CFD and simulations of the car, along with a professor of aerodynamics, spacecraft and rocket propulsion, so that if I ever had millions of dollars lying around, I could really build it. I even thought of 3D printing and building a scale prototype, placing the 3d model and associated physics onto a racing simulator (seeing that I am an avid sim racer), and drive my mad creation around. The closest thing I can imagine to my car is the RedBull X2010 prototype, in terms of performance.

Here's the link to the technical paper (Still a lot of work to be done): Project IU

Please let me know what you think, and how you would design and build the ultimate racing car, with no financial limits.

Thank you!

Apart from the downforce fan, it's in preproduction now:

No not the Nevera, although I am a huge Rimac fan, nevertheless i went for 8 Koenigsegg Quark motors (2 per wheel), coupled with 2 Viritech Apricale hydrogen pressure vessels, which seems to be a more extreme and lighter option than the Nevera's 1914 hp motors and 120 kWh battery pack.
