The Gen3 supercars are an improvement over the Gen2 models. However, they will resemble their road-going counterparts more.
Gen3 cars will have the appropriate styling on their doors, roof, windows, and bonnet.
The redesigned vehicles will also have new safety measures, lower rear wings, and wheel designs.
Notably, the Gen3 cars will have far less downforce, improving the racing spectacle.
The downforce reduction will be in the order of between 60 to 70 per cent.
There will be less emphasis on engineering and statistics and more on driving competence.
In prototype testing, the new cars have already shown they can be challenging for drivers, demonstrating they will make for an exciting racing spectacle.
For Gen3, the well-liked stick shift gear scheme has been kept, adding to the driving spectacle exclusive to Supercars.
After nearly 30 years of 5.0-litre V8 engines, the release of Gen3 also marks a change in engine size.
The GM Gen3 engine has two valves per cylinder and a single camshaft. The build has been assigned to KRE Race Engines.
The Gen3 engine from Ford will have four camshafts and four cylinders per camshaft. The Ford programme is now under the direction of Herrod Performance.
In general, Gen3 will give the Supercars grid a completely new appearance.
The target cost reduction of the current model is between 30 and 40%, making it more adaptable to a broader range of cars. The new Gen3 supercar designs have a lower, safer, and “hybrid-ready” chassis and will be significantly lighter and cheaper.
The crucial power-to-weight ratio will still be present in the Gen3 vehicle, and improvements to the engine regulations are anticipated to lower the cost of ownership and to operating expenses while also extending engine life and lowering fuel usage.
With the release of images of the new generation of Supercars, the motorsports world has gained its first glimpse into the category’s future.
The following Gen3 automobiles, expected to debut in 2022 and beyond, will include new technical design, a contemporary aesthetic, and a closer visual resemblance to conventional road cars.
A Supercars-branded engine is another alternative under consideration, which would make it simpler for other companies to enter the race.
The Gen3 race vehicles seem different from the current Gen2 equipment in design.
The updated versions of the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro are eerily similar to their road-going counterparts.
Undoubtedly, there are some variances between the autos. With adjustments for the splitter installation, the Camaro’s fascia is nearly identical to the road car’s.
Brake ducts that were cleverly incorporated into the grille make the fascia identifiable as Camaro.
With a front splitter that resembles the Gen2 cars more and has squarer intakes, the Mustang compromises some of the design cues from the road car.
Overall, Gen3 cars seem better than Gen2, thanks to their strong style and attitude.
Unquestionably, the new automobile’s roar is distinctively V8.
The fact that the noise made by the various engines varies is a welcome change.
