Looks extremely like the P2 car everywhere except inside the front fenders where the front crush box has been lengthened and sculpted and the brake ducts have been moved to the fenders to clean up the middle area.

It's not a surprise, I expected more differences, but it's something normal, as we saw with the Rebellion R-one, the more noticeable changes are around the engine.

They said this car will use a totally new tub.

That's not necessarily so much a shape thing as it is material. Because LMP2 cars are cost capped and have a much higher weight limit it doesn't make much sense to invest in certain weight reducing measures.

“The BR01 is the first real new LMP2 car,” Catone said. “From the beginning, the project was focused on LMP2. Today we’re at 900 kg. We can’t go to LMP1-L with the same car as that should be 800 kg.

“We could redo the monocoque with zylon to save 20 or 30 kg but this is an investment in itself. I asked the customer at the beginning of the project. If we had to do both, it would be very expensive and not necessarily optimized for the other.

Do anyone know if the BR1 will use the AER engine? I remember I had read that some time ago, but I can't confirm.

This picture of the lmp1 looks pretty close to the p2 Dallara/Cadillac, but some differences in the front nose and the engine cover

Aren't new lmp1 allowed to use DRS on rear wing and something like that also on front wing?

about weight, it doesn't matter so much actually....

kolles lmp1 was always discreetly over weight and very likely R-one was close to 850kg only during his first season with the TMG engine.

Not a clue but apparently the car will be available to other customers with multiple (as in more than one) engine options offered as well:

BR Engineering will offer customer versions of its new BR1 in 2018, with an option of engine choice by the customer.
