Perrinn has released new images of its electric prototype, designed as part of its Project 424 initiative.

The car, which will be powered by Formula E motors, is based on LMP1 regulations and features and “autonomous mode with machine learning.”

Perrinn’s Project 424 program centers around publicly-accessible open-access designs, allowing people to “copy, modify and re-use” the design, according to its website.

It recently launched a new website, www.project424.com, to showcase the program and explain additional details.

It states that Project 424 is “designed to provide a global marketing platform for engineering, automotive, EV, cloud software, battery manufacturers and autonomous companies worldwide.”

The program was originally announced a year ago, with the intention of competing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2019 as the Garage 56 entrant.

    Nicolas Perrinn needs to realise that he needs manufacturer support to get any of his projects off the ground. You can’t run any motorsport programs on Crowdfunding and Crowdsourcing alone, the business model doesn’t work. One need only see Caterham’s feeble efforts back in 2014 to crowdsource their continued participation in F1. Despite the best efforts of F1 fans across the world, the team managed a single car entry for Kamui Kobayashi at the season finale in Abu Dhabi.
