Acura has just given us a glimpse at their new race car, the highly anticipated ARX-05 prototype, AKA the Acura Racing eXperimental generation 5; which is set to be raced by the famed Team Penske for the 2018 season. The ARX-05 is significant, as it marks the Japanese automaker’s return to prototype racing. The ARX-05 is set to be revealed at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering on August 18th, one of the most prestigious events during the annual Monterey Car Week.
This new prototype from Acura is just the latest in an over 25 year history of the brand’s proven success in producing endurance prototypes starting in 1991. The ARX-05 is expected to celebrate many victories with the highly successful Team Penske which has accomplished over 450 major wins in their fifty plus year history. The Acura ARX-05 will be hitting the track in January of 2018 to make its competition debut for the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach Florida.
