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 back 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 24 Hours at Daytona races overall and three of the past four IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship manufacturers’ titles. 

The ARX-06 debuts with the inception of the new GTP class in IMSA, which is the preeminent North American sports car racing championship.
