The more I look at this the more I think this is a very good looking car indeed.

One thing I would like to see is it being given a series number conforming with traditional Ligier JS xx standards, with an even number (odd ones historically being used for single seaters - which seems to have fallen a little by the wayside with their CN cars).

Oh look, they've bought the original headlights of the TS030 from TMG.

Can I say it's a bit hideous? The cockpit is like a cancer growing from the open-top body. Not as natural as P1 coupes or even the T128. It looks like a Pescarolo LMP3 coupe.Ah...my eyes!

It's great to see another prototype!

I find this slightly prettier than the Porsche 919.

I think it's really cute.

Exactly how a second-tier prototype should look.

So which regs book is this car referring to exactly?

I still struggle to understand how P2 rules changed/will change during the next years...

I read somewhere that now all new P2s should be closed, but do they share anything with P1 regulation? And shouldn't P2 rules finally change after 2016?

P2 regulations stay the same until 2016 or 2017, the decision to move to closed cars seems to be on the part of the P2 manufacturers. Open cars are still allowed, look at the HPD and the Zytek.

I like it, interesting to see that the fin-type things on front wheel arches of the early models have become the shaping of the light cluster.

New lmp2 regulations will debut in 2017, but considering that in 2015 will debut the new oreca lmp2 coupè and the former lmp1 HPD-wirth lmp2 coupè while more oak-ligier coupè will be produced, I don't think that oreca, oak and HPD were going to build these new cars for only 2 seasons! I think that very probably the 2014-2015 lmp2 close monocoques (and surely most of the bodywork too) will be regoular in 2017 regulations.
