Designed by David Voltner, the Le Mans 2030 racer car concept features an enhanced tire design that looks to make it easier for pit crews and drivers to spot problems before they cause issues. Featuring a layered tire design, the wheels on the Le Mans 2030 change color to indicate wear; while black means they're brand new, green means there's light wear, yellow means medium wear and red means heavy wear. This allows crews to instantly see when a tire should be replaced rather than relying on guesswork.

The Le Mans 2030 racer car concept features a low, aerodynamic design aesthetic that would enable it to cut through the air and effectively put a focus on speed, safety and stylish design.
