Bruce Nunnally How road cars inspire race car design at Daytona 24 Hours

Recommended Posts

“There are a lot of Cadillac design cues in the body lines of the DPi,” says Blanski. “The surface tension and line quality in the early sketches were inspired by the production vehicles in our studio.”

Blanski’s involvement extended beyond the Cadillac DPi’s body shape to details like the large, vertical daytime running lights, the valve covers for the Earnhardt Childress Racing Engines-built, 6.2-litre V8 motor and even the deep-dish wheels, which mimic the style of those found on a CTS-V road car.
