Although it may not be what you hope / think. Seems the ACO and race car builder / team ORECA have cooked up something called Formula Le Mans for 2009 and beyond. A training ground series for aspiring drivers and teams with races in Europe alongside the Le Mans Series events.
....and they had a news release. ....that mentioned the spec cars [LMP2-derived] would run a V8, American power. ....with the website adding further engine details that it would be a 6.2L, 430BHP powerplant.
That looks more like the Porsche Prototype, honestly as long that LS3 sings and performs like a 'vette engine supposed to they can slap a Ford body on! Wait, scratch that idea, damn I need to wash my mouth out with soap now. . .
