Two more days until the official unveiling. You can see most of the car already in the video.

Pretty sharp looking. And no Acura grill anywhere.

You just said the same thing twice lmao. An Acura grille and sharp are mutually exclusive things.

Looks good, but I like the Mazda entry a bit better, aesthetically.

^^^^^

The sharp front fairings and winglets will sure shred pedestrians into pieces in the event of accidents.

Looks like Juan Pablo Montoya and possibly Helio Castroneves will be driving it next season.

If Acura isn't going to go to Europe, this is the next best thing they can do.

The Penske Acura line-up is set:

Car 1:
Juan Pablo Montoya [1999 IndyCar Champion, GP winner]
Dane Cameron [2016 IMSA Champion]

Car 2:
Helio Castro-Neves [Dancing with the Stars Champion]
Ricky Taylor [2017 IMSA Champion]

Additional drivers for the endurance races:
Graham Rahal
Simon Pagenaud [2016 IndyCar Champion]

That's a strong lineup. The Captain isn't playing around.

Finally, the first thing from Acura (other than the NSX) that I can get excited about in the last 10 years.

Acura ARX-05 IMSA DPI

Want a crazier racecar than that? Meet the Acura ARX-05 IMSA DPI. As you can see, it has much aero.

So much aero, in fact, that it’s gone straight into the number one spot of ‘Cars We Don’t Want To Be Ran Over By’.

The final livery for the Penske Acura ARX05's.
Pretty underwhelming livery. Looks too messy with all the strips and triangles. So disappointed.

Man the original was so much better. Why did they change it to that.

New livery for 2019. Pays tribute to the old Comptech Acura Spice cars.

CompTech baby.

Love how everyone is bringing old liveries back. Loved the Rothmans and the Pink Pig at LeMans and now everyone this year!

Even the Subaru WRX is going back to blue with the gold wheels...

.....and the same year we lose the Martini livery!
Although, I bet if Williams was kickin' ass they'd stick around.

The Martini Williams was one of the best looking liveries this era. Will be hopeful that their '19 car looks decent & the drivers get better results...

Some pics from this past weekend.

I'd say it looks way more sinister in carbon black.....
