Ligier JS 53 EVO 2

The Ligier JS 53 EVO has benefited from all the experience gathered from the JS 49s, JS 51s and JS 53s.

After adding the first set of improvements during the 2013-2014 winter, the Design Office developed a aero kit available from the start of 2015 season. It has a brand-new front splitter, flaps and an optimisation of the rear wing making the Ligier JS 53 EVO 2 more efficient from an aerodynamic point of view leading to an improvement in cornering speeds and a reduction in tyre degradation. A new electronic management system has also improved the driveability and overall running of the Ligier JS 53 EVO 2.

Onroak Automotive has developed different modifications for a special Ligier JS 53 EVO to enable Frédéric Sausset, who had to have all four limbs amputated, to fulfill his dream of driving a sports prototype. After a successful first stage, a Morgan LM P2 has been modified, to enter, and complete, the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours.

Cockpit adapted to all sizes
Easy to drive for professionals, gentlemen drivers or drivers who want to put their foot on the first rung of the sports prototype ladder
Easy to run for teams
Long-lasting bodywork thanks to pre-impregnated glass fibre technology
