The ARX-05 also comes fitted with a Xtrac P1159F six-speed sequential transaxle, a 20.7-gallon fuel tank, AP Racing carbon rotors, Oreca steering wheel with inset MoTeC data logger and much more. The fire bottle currently fitted to the car, however, expired on December 1, 2022.

If any of you buy it I just want to sit in it.  So cool that when these sell we get to see all the little details.  I'm wondering if the rear sway bar also functions as a 3rd member.  Otherwise it doesn't seem to have one.  

Also I realize they are nothing alike but it is amazing how much further back the diff is on this compared to my LMP360

For your purposes, I'd even suggest saving as many pictures from the listing as you can. Doesn't seem very often that we can (virtually) get so up close and personal with a prototype racer.

Many a Ligier sale on Racecarsdirect was consulted during development of the LMP360

This thing is massively longer than the LMP360, it has a track-to-wheelbase ratio like a crew-cab pickup truck, vs. the LMP360 which is probably more like a 2-door coupe. We can joke about entering this thing in an autocross, but its length alone could make that a major challenge - not to mention that it probably has very little lock angle and front fenders that could blot out a whole gaggle of cones from your view.

The advantage of all that length is better aero (especially more area to generate underbody downforce with). Edit: See also, Jimmy Broadbent's term "downforce limousine" laugh

Looks like it can run a 3rd member between the two coilovers, but it's not installed in the BaT pics:

Possibly because it includes an inerter, which race teams are very secretive about.
