It will be built to the same Le Mans Daytona hybrid, or LMDh, specs that will allow it to participate in both the FIA World Endurance Championship's Hypercar class, as well as the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship's GTP Class, thanks to a blending of rulesets that will allow cars to compete in both starting in 2023.

The Project GTP Hypercar's chassis comes from Dallara, one of four manufacturers who can build a chassis for this racing class, but the body is all Cadillac.

But in terms of prime-time viewing, keep your eyes to the Rolex 24 at Daytona in early 2023, which will mark the Project GTP Hypercar's official debut.
