Acura ARX-06 Race Car
Acura today released the first official images and details for their all-new, electrified ARX-06 prototype sports car which will compete in next year's Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The all-new Acura ARX-06 was unveiled this week at the New York Auto show. The prototype features a custom body kit and aerodynamic design that is specifically tailored for endurance racing, as well as an engine manufactured by HPD--the company behind Honda's successful Formula 1 team.
Local sports car racing fans are in for a treat this coming Friday, as the latest addition to The Quail MotorSports Gathering's already stellar line up is set be revealed.
The new Acura ARX-06 is a performance car built to win championships, and it's already proven itself on tracks across North America. With its powerful electric engine as well as highly advanced technology features like torque vectoring all through the front wheels – plus an impressive list of other equipment that sets this vehicle apart from others by putting you in control--the latest addition to our sports car family will be ready when racing resumes after a three year hiatus.
The IMSA in North America and FIA World Endurance Championship rules require manufacturers to use one of four approved prototype chassis, fitted with manufacturer designed bodywork. The engines used must also meet additional regulations set by each series' engine builder requirements for both races as well commemorate branding on their respective cars. The input states "both" however there is no connection made between these two topics so I added some extra information about why this could be important
The exterior styling of the Acura ARX-06 was led by a team at HPD and ORECA, one if its chassis suppliers approved for prototype competition in both IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship races as well World Endurance Championships events.
The HPD team's dedication to providing the most competitive and efficient aero packages for their cars is clear in this example. Working closely with ORECA, they developed an elegant design that maximized performance while staying within all regulations set by IMSA as well as FIA championships.
