OVERVIEW

The Ligier JS P320 is the latest car from Ligier Automotive and the second generation LMP3 car from the French manufacturer. It is one of the four new chassis selected by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), which will be homologated for the 2020-2024 period.

With its modern hypercar look and its Ligier trademark nose, the Ligier JS P320 is instantly recognisable. With 95% new bodywork, Ohlins dampers, a new, more powerful Nissan V8 VK56 engine, an adapted cooling system and aerodynamics optimised for all circuits, the Ligier JS P320 is determined to surpass its elder sister.

The Ligier JS P320 will be eligible to race in the European Le Mans Series, the Michelin Le Mans Cup and the Ultimate Cup Series from April 2020, with the car being eligible for the 2020/2021 Asian Le Mans Series later in the year. The IMSA Prototype Challenge in the USA will accept the new generation Ligier from 2021, with the Australian LMP3 Cup accepting the car from 2022.
