Acura Motorsports has revealed its all-new, electrified Acura ARX-06 prototype sports car, which will make its competition debut next January at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

The ARX-06 features aerodynamics based around an all-new ORECA LMDh chassis, which utilizes an electrified hybrid power unit featuring an equally new, bespoke twin-turbocharged 2.4 liter V6 internal combustion engine designed, developed and manufactured by Honda Performance Development (HPD), the racing arm for Acura Motorsports in North America.

“If you’re a performance brand, you have to go racing. It’s that simple. Both the existing ARX-05 prototype and our production-based NSX GT3 have proven to be race- and championship-winning designs on tracks all across North America. Now, with the introduction of the new, electrified Acura ARX-06, we look forward to facing off against other premium automotive brands from around the world—and continuing our winning ways,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and Acura brand officer.
