This rendering of the Nissan GT-R LM endurance racer to race in the top LMP1 class in the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans was supposedly based on reports from people who actually have seen the car. The engine supposedly fits underneath that long nose at the front, though behind the axle, for a novel mid-engine design. The brand promises to have a very different looking racer, and this would certainly fit those criteria.
2015 Nissan GT-R LM Nismo Announcement

The Nissan Zeod RC hybrid racecar is certainly cool with its pointy looks, we're excited to see it run, but it isn't built to win races so much as push boundaries. But we might not have too to wait long for one of the Japanese brand's vehicles to claim an overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well. The company is announcing the GT-R LM Nismo racecar with a two-car, full factory effort in the top LMP1 class of the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship, including Le Mans.
