BMW teases LMDh Le Mans race car ahead of June 6 premiere, track debut nearing
BMW has teased its LMDh Le Mans race car again ahead of the global debut on June 6. This time BMW has teased its LMDh competition hypercar in the production form, not through any sketch or prototype like before. However, only the signature silhouette of the LMDh is visible in the latest teaser image.
The majority of the car's finer details are still in dark. However, the teaser image hints at what we may look at once the automaker take off its cover. If the previously rendered image published by the automaker is to be considered, expect the upcoming BMW LMDh model to come with the automaker's signature sleek kidney grille flanked by slim vertically positioned headlights. Also, there would be sharp mirrors and at the top, there would be a huge front splitter. The headlamps come with integrated bifurcated LED strips.

The German luxury car brand has indicated that it will be campaigning two LMDh cars in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The first car has been produced at BMW's factory in Italy.
