Documentary Traces Development of Acura ARX-06 GTP Car

The Design and Development of the Newest Acura Prototype Is Chronicled

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Honda Performance Development (HPD) has released a 48-minute documentary providing an inside view into development of the Acura ARX-06 prototype debuting this weekend in the Rolex 24 At Daytona.  Meyer Shank Racing with Curb-Agajanian and Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Autosport are campaigning the new car in the Grand Touring Prototype (GTP) class of the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

The film highlights the initial concepts and goals for the ARX-06, as well as design, development and testing.  The origin story places the ARX-06 in the line of Acura sports cars dating to the original Acura ARX-01 of 2007.  Styling, aerodynamics, power unit, integration and simulation techniques, challenges and triumphs are highlighted in the film through the eyes of the hard-working men and women responsible for the creation of the Acura ARX-06.


Acura’s newest prototype racing car follows in the footsteps of the ARX-05, which won the past two Rolex 24s overall and three of the past four WeatherTech Championship manufacturer, team and driver titles.
