Acura RLX Debuts at Monterey

Acura’s ARX-05 prototype racer to tear up Daytona

The competition debut of the Team Penske Acura ARX-05 prototypes will take place at the season-opening Rolex 24 in January, 2018.

The Acura ARX-05 (Acura Racing eXperimental, generation 5) is the latest in a line of endurance prototypes to be fielded by the brand dating to 1991, just five years after the 1986 launch of the Acura marque.

HPD, Acura and Honda have a history of success in endurance sports auto racing, with more than 100 prototype victories since 1991, including either class or overall victories at the Rolex 24, 12 Hours of Sebring, 24 Hours of Le Mans and Petit Le Mans.

Team Penske Unveils 2018 Acura ARX-05 DPI Race Car for IMSA WeatherTech Championship

The engine's also been seen in the Pirelli World Challenge GT division, where it's been fitted to the Acura NSX GT3 race auto (a vehicle you can have now, for a cool half-million bucks).

The ARX-05 is built around an ORECA 07 chassis, the same one underpinning the Jackie Chan DC Racing LMP2 auto that led a significant portion of the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year.

So even though the chassis is based on the Oreca 07, Acura has supplied the engine and body kit to comply with IMSA regulations. Compared to the other DPi entries, the ARX-05 is notable for its aggressive look with an F1-style wing. Power comes from the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that's under the hood of the Acura TLX, MDX, RDX, and RLX, only this time it's been configured to produce around 600 hp. One of the team's two ARX-05 entries will be piloted by the legendary Juan Pablo Montoya along with sports vehicle champion Dane Cameron.

Why Anquan Boldin is leaving the NFL
The timing of his decision is somewhat shocking, as Boldin signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills less than two weeks ago. He had 370 catches for 3,030 yards and 16 touchdowns with San Francisco, leading the team in receiving each season.

Acura and Team Penske have a stunner on their hands. The new Acura ARX-05 will compete against the likes of Oreca, Dallara, Nissan, Cadillac, Multimatic Riley, and Mazda.

We only have a few static images and the reveal video, above, at the moment- but we'll all get to see the Acura ARX-05 in action soon enough, at the 24 Hours of Daytona this winter. Check out the video below to learn more about the new race vehicle.

The 377-horsepower Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is the most-sophisticated and best-performing Acura sedan ever, according to the automaker. It has the brand's signature grille along with new wheel designs, newly designed LED taillights, gloss-black rear diffuser, and dual exhaust finishers.

The 2018 Acura RLX makes its public debut this week during the prestigious Monterey Automotive Week, August 15-19 on the Monterey peninsula.

The JLWS features kids aged 13, 14, and 15, and rather than Williamsport, it takes place in Taylor, Michigan, a Detroit suburb. It wasn't without controversy, though, as the opposing manager attempted to argue the catch should have been a home run.
