As an SCCA Runoffs car it does not need to pass the same FIA tests as the DW. As raced there's no way it would anyway. It was essentially a tube frame car.

The DW coupe tested today and they have tweeted a few pictures. This is the most revealing so far:

My eyes aren't keen enough to discern all the differences with this and the open top car, but it looks like the fin treatment is different and is that an airbox on the top? I like the "gill" treatment on the engine cover too. That should take care of the cooling issues!

They did that sort of thing on the DP01

I can't find a lower angle shot, but the lower angle looked quite similar.

That doesn't look wide enough to be a two seater.

It is a single seater and the seat is in the middle. The may not have been designed to LM spex either.

The rear looks identical (beside the engine cover, fin and all the stuff that makes it a coupe), just the holes are in different positions.

It would be great to get a picture of the under body to see how are things shaped there and find out if they managed to find more downforce, but I guess that would be asking too much

The cockpit is designed to 2014 LM specs.

How did you know I was referring to the cockpit, looking at the fact that I completely missed the word? .... But yes, I was not sure about the cockpit because I think I saw a very bad quality picture somewhere and maybe it was the angle or the poor quality, but it looked like the rood was not up to spex. But it could be you are absolutely right. We should wait for better photos.

You think someone is going to be able to get a picture from underneath? I have never been able to find an under body shot of the DW on the internet. If know of one, please send me a link or just IM me. Thanks!

He was making a joke, that it will flip over again like last year. Hence the smiley.

I have taken pictures of the bottom sides of cars at tech inspections at Sebring and Road America. I've never done it at Road atlanta, but thinking about the usual location of the IMSA trailer, this should be possible.

It would be very nice if you could!.... Looking at the full picture above, it seems noting else was changed on the car (beside the cockpit, engine cover, etc), so it will be essential to see some underneath pictures to find out how are they going to get extra downforce...
