The last LMP cars that I know of that were 750KG or less unballasted where the 2012/2013 and later Audi R18s, and the LMP1 wolf in LMP2 sheep's clothing that was the Porsche RS Spyder (750kg was LMP2 minimum at the time, and was the only car to meet that with ballast). Also most LMP675s that were purpose built for those regs were down to below 700kg with ballast, which of course is part of the reason they were so fragile.

I know that the Toyota LMP1s and the Porsche 919s are obviously ballasted to meet 875kg, but I doubt that they're 750kg unladen. Also, LMPs are weighed without drivers or fuel onboard.
