The Intercontinental Le Mans Cup (shortened ILMC) was an endurance sports car racing tournament organised by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) started in 2010.[1] The plans were first announced in June 2009[2][3] and confirmed in December of the same year.[1]

Both sports prototypes and grand tourers are eligible to compete for the ILMC: the LMP1 and GTE classes each have a manufacturers cup, whereas all ACO classes have teams cups as long as there are at least four entries.[4] In 2010 also the GT1 class was eglible for the final time.

For 2012, the ACO and the FIA have announced the creation of a new FIA World Endurance Championship. This championship will use similar rules to and will replace the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup. [5]
