    Rebellion in for the TPNAEC. That makes 13 DPi more/less on the grid already. Could be north of 15 come race time

    Source.

    It's not overly surprising considering they've been expressing interest for awhile now. It also looks like they aren't messing around either with that line-up. :eek:

    I do like it but I was hoping for a bit more Cadillac styling design and cues. The Mazda DPi really nailed the manufacturer "custom" bodywork design. This looks pretty much like a Dallara with different headlights. The only real Caddy cues I can see are the vertical side headlights. Kinda wish some more body work, nose/frontal area and headlights would have reflected more Cadillac styling. I still like it but there's more to be desired. I guess function over form.

    I'm happy to see it's got the 6.2l V8 instead of the turbo V6, I would have missed that roar in Prototype with the Corvette DP's gone now.
    Edit - posted before I saw the 2017 thread.

    I have to agree...the Cadillac DPi is awfully boring compared to the Mazda one. Boo, hiss.
