The Ligier Nissan DPi is a derivative of the Ligier JS P217 complying with the Daytona Prototype International category (DPi) regulations set up by the IMSA. It is dedicated exclusively to the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

In partnership with Nissan and Nismo, Ligier Automotive conceived for the Tequila Patron ESM team the Ligier Nissan DPi powered by the 3.8-litre twin turbo engine from the GT-R Nismo GT3. In parallel to the modifications required for the installation of the engine, special bodywork was also created.
