But then what's the difference to the Lites (RX2)?

The Lites are supposed to somewhat resemble supercars and IMO they aren't similar to buggies or crosskarts. OMSE and Avitas began building them on their own initiative as well and it is a private effort without the involvement of any organization. These things will probably differ a lot from the Lites.

Except LMP1 and 2 there isn't a class I like silhouettes, it's either boring or too far from any normal sporty road car

'Proper' Bodywork won't do a thing to make it more safe, or they have to build a far larger and heavier tubular framework around it, which will bend on impact though. That would make them 2, 3 or more times more expensive and the weight would double at least too. To fit even an old style and size austin mini or fiat 500/800 silhouette body would require so much tube work it's rediculous. These things are a motorcycle engine, a seat, 4 wheels, 2 shocks, steering wheel, steering rack and a gastank. That's it. The bodywork now hasn't enough room to stick proper sized start numbers on them.
And I very much doubt that the FIA will chance a lot of the nowdays crosskarts technical specifications, they want the champs of some of the countries to be able to run.
