    Acura offers first look at ARX-05

    Acura offers first look at ARX-05

    By Marshall Pruett


    Acura's brand-new ARX-05 Daytona Prototype international has broken cover in a teaser video released by the manufacturer.
    Built on the ORECA 07 LMP2 chassis, the customized ARX-05 version that will run in IMSA's WeatherTech SportsCar Championship makes a significant visual departure from the base model. Similar to the Ligier JS P217-based Nissan Onroak DPi, the ARX-05 uses a wide, chevron-like beam that spans the front fenders. It sits above a reprofiled center nose section that includes a duct at its base that is not found on the 07.
    The sharp, angular beam and nose profiling will make it easy to tell the Team Penske-run Acuras from the other DPi models produced by Cadillac, Mazda and Nissan.
    In the video, which features a driver wearing a helmet that bears a strong resemblance to LMP2 driver Bruno Senna, a fresh sidepod treatment is shown with added radiator venting on the topside and what appears to be tighter sculpting at the base.
    Exhaust outlets from the 07 carry over at least on the test mule and from an overhead shot, a shadow can be seen at the back of the car, which suggests some sort of aero-profiled beam spanning the rear fenders was tested during the ARX-05's shakedown at the Paul Ricard circuit in France.
    The ARX-05 will be formally unveiled on August 18 in Monterey.
