Jaguar SS-107 LME1 by Serdar Soyal

On-going since 1923 and signified as the most important sports event, 24 Hours Le Mans races has broken with tradition depending on technological improvements and it is dominated by unmanned racing vehicles which remote controlled within the years 2023–2029. Although the first five years were exciting with great audience, cars without pilot caused emotional lack in event while technologically advantageous companies having different know-how, won with same prevented suprise and spontaneous events in the race since 2028. So the audience has lost their interest and by the year of 2030 all drone races were cancelled permanently according to FIA. Instead of this drone races, 24h Le Mans Races came back to its traditional roots as combination of technology and human factors while supporting only the green energy in its 107th anniversary. Those news has fueled the classic rivalry between the companies and encourage their engineers and designers to construct hi-tech cars which represents lines from the past, offers high comfort and control ability to pilots with the technological improvements of past seven years and runs with green energies.

Jaguar SS-107, aims to win 2030 Le Mans Race while celebrating the 107th anniversary and showing where the company has become in its 85th year. SS-107 which has been developed in such a pace, has reached 465 km/h according to test results. By the wings placed in rear of the vehicle, road holding and tire deflection are optimized autonomously. By use of latest technology calculator, maneuvers and road conditions are put into operation and turned into instant actions.

Exterior Features

Automotive exterior lighting applications and warnings are low energy consuming and considerably light components made by using latest technology. Besides that, the exterior coating and paintings are developed by using nanotech paints in order to provide minimum effect for the air flow and vehicle weight. By this way, during the race, vehicle’s exterior surface will be protected from external factors and after any deformation; the texture regenerates itself in macro levels.

Interior Features

In the interior of vehicle, high standards of comfort and usability are aimed. For this, mono block control cabin roof opens frontward and allows quick get in and get off. Nanotech hydrophilic glass windshield keeps the vision all time clean. In addition to that, special racing seat which is made of smart nano-gel material that can be fit to different body sizes, keeps the body temperature of the pilot in optimum degrees and improves durability of the pilot. Transmitters in the pilot helmet, shares the personal information with the vehicle as soon as the pilot gets in the car in order to obtain completely personalized driving.

Energy Generation

With different engine and battery layout, all the works that have to be done in pit-stops could be done quickly and easily and saves time to pilots. Thanks to Michelin tire and battery combination which can be considered as one of the most important feature, the vehicle has a range of 1065 km without pit-stops. Batteries are integrated to wheels which can be 80% charged in 1.7 seconds can be replaced with wheels in 3.4 seconds. Specialized Michelin tires and battery combination support electric power generation by creating reverse magnetic field during brake. During the race, there are always constant changes between extremely high speeds and rapid decelerations. This condition provides an opportunity to use the air circulation during braking as a mean of alternative energy resource by turning wind power to electricity. In order to do that, during deceleration, air flows through the nose of the car to the turbine blades. Additionally, by directing the air outlet to the exits placed in cabin rear, provides downward push enhancing the deceleration.

At the same time, specialized Michelin tires and battery combination support electric power generation by creating reverse magnetic field during brake. When the length of the race and the driving speeds considered, using air flow during the deceleration for power generation
will be a good example for productive use and production of energy.
