Open topped is not the correct answer for the current regulations.

It doesn't say whether the car is open or closed.

They tested the open S101, using a V8TT and hybrid system, in 2008.

Then they commissioned and monitered the coupe S102, now they are testing a 2011 hybrid, possibly using a 2.0T. The new car has already been inspected by the ACO and expected to race within two years.

They're also testing a GTE mule based on the LFA, aimed at customers, developed in Cologne.

Engine testing in a S101.5 or S102?

S101.5, but that was 2008.

If I'm reading it right, they're now testing an all new car, after monitering the performance of the S102. I don't have the magazine in front of me but I think it said TMG are running the car.

The project go-ahead was delayed because of the earthquake.

Looks like it, I assume Dome and TMG are working together, with TMG also working on a GTE.

I'd like to see these projects, any photos or just print? The LFA in GTE is just as exciting. I'm hoping the LMP project is a coupe, I can't imagine why it wouldn't be.
TF110 is online now

I think most of the poster's concerns are over the competitiveness of open-top cars. I wouldn't mind a variety, but apparently they're not competitive for a reason other than none of them have factory diesels in the back.
