Acura Motorsports at Daytona
Following back-to-back wins at the Rolex 24 including a dominate 1-2 finish in 2022, Acura Motorsports returns to Daytona looking to defend its Rolex crowns. For the 61st running of the twice around the clock enduro, Acura will campaign four entries – including the debut of the all-new electrified Acura ARX-06 Prototypes competing in the newly formed GTP category. Convincingly demonstrating the new car’s performance in its maiden outing during Rolex 24 qualifying last weekend, Meyer Shank Racing team driver Tom Blomqvist set fastest time to take pole position for the race.
The two Prototypes will be joined by two Acura NSX GT3 Evo22s racing in the GTD category.

With the rear doors being flared out , I would expect the wheel flares to be molded into the sheet metal. If it’s tacked on it would not be a good look.For those of you that have seen the car in person, are the flared fenders all one piece? As in, the fender flares that look like they are added on are actually molded in the sheet metal to look that way or are they separate pieces added on? There is a definitive seam there, but with the wrap I can’t tell
The front fenders look like they are one piece molded that way, but it’s hard to tell with the rear quarters and the rear doors?
Looks tacked on unlike the CTR which has the flares integrated and therefore doors unique to it.With the rear doors being flared out , I would expect the wheel flares to be molded into the sheet metal. If it’s tacked on it would not be a good look.
Or maybe it's a prototype and the production model won't be a 100% clone. And also cost more than the CTR.Looks tacked on unlike the CTR which has the flares integrated and therefore doors unique to it.
Maybe this means ITS will be cheaper than CTR
I agree with the latter. On the other hand - in my area at least - my dealers are “saying” 10k markup on the CTR & that they haven’t marked up their Acura Type S models in the past yet. That would be estimated around the same price, heck, maybe even a few K less than the CTR due to the rarity/availability they say. I guess we’ll see soon enough when Acura releases pricing.Or maybe it's a prototype and the production model won't be a 100% clone. And also cost more than the CTR.
No way an Acura would cost less than a Honda.
