For a team having as small a budget as WR does, they do tend to continually develop the car.  In 2003 WR debuted the WR LM2003.  Again the chassis was based upon the same angular carbon monocoque as in previous years, but the LM2003 had been designed to accept the 3.0 liter Peugeot V6.   While the LM2003 didn't set the world on fire (engine failure at LM '03 in the 18th hour), it is unique in some aspects of its design and certainly can be appreciated on these pages.
