    I see a lot more R-ONE similarities but that's not a bad thing :drool:

    They should name them the 919-14 and 919-15 since they are radically different.

    Probably do in house.

    Anyone else get LMP2000 vibes off of the front design of that thing?

    For us gran turismo fans, can we call it the '15 919 stealth model? ;) Also Toyota tweeted theyve completed their first test.

    I like how it looks 50% pretty and 50% purpose built racing machine. Also like what looks like an identifying light above the windshield.

    Hopefully it has a livery to match its looks

    Also, if it wins, it be the first 4 cylinder car to win Le Mans in how many years if ever?

    My prediction for the record is the car will not only win Le Mans but it will dominate

    Wow! I don't think a four cylinder has ever won Le Mans now that you mention it.

    Some cars in the 1920's had 4-cylinder engines and won. I think 3 or 4 years in a row?

    I apologise, it is a ByKolles, which to me sounds like a nasty stomach infection.

    Sounds to me more like "lets change the bits of the car that are not really ours" in the article more.

    Edit: render from Japanese magazine based on the leaked pics.

    It is legit, it has a watermark (that's barely visible) on the top right corner. It comes from Japanese magazine Autosport, and they might just be right with the design. At least that's what I can tell from the leaked pictures.

    Well, it's the intention that counts, right? :lol: Maybe they should give the entry to someone who can field a car on any category, I dunno...

    Maybe it was an invite for the catering?

    Can't say I'm surprised either. They literally have nothing else but TUSC and that team hardly is big enough to have a LMP2 team as well to travel over with. With that in mind, perhaps they'll begin to consider that LMP2 car? It'll be a lot less for them to spend AND they'll be able to go to Le Mans Like Shank now can.
