ligier, oreca and very likely dallara lmp2 are lighter than 900kg and reach reg. min. 930kg because of mandatory ballast.
Cadillac dpi and Nissan dpi use heavier engines than gibson motor.

In an article post daytona, I've read that max angelelli speculated that cadillac dpi was about 50kg overweight (about 980kg) that more or less is basically the same extra weight Sharp was talking about (100pounds = 45kg).
Anyway is a sort of "compensation handicap": cadillac and nissan have same power of aco lmp2, but much more torque. It's quite fair that these cars must to be heavier after all.

About riley-multimatic, the very ACO lmp2 spec is/was over weighted, for sure it was mazda dpi too.

For records, in the whole 2007-2010 lifespan 908 Hdi was always heavier than min. 930kg. Over weighted cars are quite common in motorsport, 2017 mercedes f1 was too in first races.

JPM-Castroneves-Pagenaud as drivers. Big guns a-blazing.

Neither is the ESM Nissan imo. But the goofy rules allow you to put something there.

And the livery does a decent job of accenting parts around it to make it look much more like the street Nissan treatment. Not a great look but I can see their idea.
