Ligier JS P4

The new Ligier JS P4 prototype by Onroak Automotive, as seen at the 2018 Autosport International Show, uses a Quaife transverse 6-speed semi-automatic paddle shift transmission. The French based racing firm is currently in the process of testing before an expected launch later this year.

The Ligier JS P4 took pride of place on the Onroak Automotive stand at the recent 2018 Autosport International Show. Presented in an eye catching blue, crowds flocked to take in the latest development from the famous French racing specialists.

Quaife Engineering have been working closely with the company in developing and manufacturing the JS P4’s bespoke transverse 6-speed, paddle shift transmission. It was therefore especially exciting to see the prototype up close at Autosport.

This latest prototype uses a 3.7 litre supercharged Ford V6 developing 420 bhp. In terms of dimensions, the JS P4 measures 4680 mm in length, 1900 mm in width and 2860 mm in wheelbase. Weighing in at just 920 kg and featuring a 100 litre fuel tank, performance is expected to be scintillating.

The new JS P4 follows in the tracks of the JS P2 and JS P3, keeping to the same philosophy in terms of performance, design and reliability. It will offer the best value in terms of performance, quality and safety for a racing car with a closed cockpit, whilst the carbon monocoque will be accessible for all kinds of drivers.

The JS P4 is a real racing car that will slot in between the CN and LM P3 categories. The aim is to help drivers and teams discover what it’s like to drive and run a sports prototype. It will take part in endurance races including the V de V Endurance Series, the Creventic 24H Proto Series, as well as track days and in different national series.
