Nigel Stroud has gone with a low wing architecture for the LMP02.
All LMPs built after January 1, 2002,  must mount the rear wing directly to the chassis.  In this effort, the Cadillac mounts its wing directly to a very large rear structure that also doubles as a crash structure. 
The rear mechanical unit.  Note all the quick release hoses. 
The rear wing's proximity to the diffuser is apparent in this photo.
