If you're a performance brand, you have to go racing. It's that simple," says Acura's CEO.

Acura's entrant in the LMDh hypercar class will go racing in 2023
All-new 2.4-liter turbo V6 with hybrid assistance produces 670 horsepower
Chassis development by ORECA and design by Acura Design Studio
Acura has lifted the lid on the all-new ARX-06 prototype, an electrified race car itching to do battle in a series of motorsport events, such as the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar GTP Championship. The dramatically-styled racer is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.4-liter V6 which gains extra motivation from a hybrid power unit.

Developed by Honda Performance Development, the AR24e motor is the smallest combustion engine ever created by the department for endurance racing but still boasts strong performance figures. Combined outputs meet the required targets of 500 kW (670 hp) while revving out to 10,000 rpm. The compact design and 90-degree V-angle allow for a lower center of gravity, improving handling and dynamics. https://us.motorsport.com/imsa/news/acura-reveals-arx-06-lmdh-car-for-2023-imsa-season/10353993/
