BRASELTON, Ga. – DeltaWing Racing Cars has announced that the coupe version of the radically innovative DeltaWing is available now for advance customer purchase.
A total of three coupes will be built by Élan Motorsports Technologies for sale to teams planning to compete with United SportsCar Racing in 2014. The DeltaWing coupe is designed to meet the FIA mandate that all prototypes will have closed cockpits beginning next season.
The coupe is the closed-top version of the car that has captured the imagination of the motorsports world since its first race at Le Mans last year. The DeltaWing continues to make history, leading 16 laps in the recent ALMS race at Road America. Both versions of the DeltaWing embody a new era of eco-friendly technological advancement, with nearly half the weight, aerodynamic drag, horsepower and fuel consumption of the competition.

The 2013 DeltaWing coupe is scheduled to make its debut Sept. 19-21 in the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón event at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, part of the International Sports Car Weekend.
