Nissan Delta Wing Commission

Once again Andy has blown peoples minds with a project built in a ridiculously short time frame. Andy was commissioned by Top Gear magazine in conjunction with Nissan UK to build a drivable copy of the real Nissan Delta Wing race car unveiled at the prestigious Le Mans 24 hour race in France June 2012. The concept of the Delta Wing stretching every boundary in the race car rule book. Nissan saw Le Mans as an ideal opportunity for extra publicity by having another Delta Wing driving around the whole Le Mans site throughout the weekend.

The person they called on, because of his expert knowledge and speed of build, was Andy. From when the commission was signed to the day the car would have to be on the ferry gave Andy just 39 days ! A task most would have thought impossible but Andy and his faithful engineer Jim Chalmers set off with two magic wands and a welder and created what you see here.
Nissan did not give any information, details or blueprints to Andy, this car was built with just 5 low res pictures taken off the internet as any kind of reference.
