2019 Acura ARX-05 Prototype Racers Get Heritage Liveries

Believe it or not, the brand has been racing for nearly 30 years

Acura has new colors for its Team Penske prototype race cars that will compete in the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Throughout the new season, the prototypes will wear the white, orange, and black on the cars that won three consecutive IMSA championships from 1991 to 1993. It's sort of strange to realize that Acura as a brand has been around and racing long enough to have a heritage livery, but here we are.

The new retro look is an updated take on the Camel Lights champion Comptech Racing Spice Acura NSXs of the early '90s. The new cars debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway later this month, where Dane Cameron, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Simon Pagenaud will drive the No. 6 Acura Team Penske ARX-05 and Helio Castroneves, Ricky Taylor, and Alexander Rossi the No. 7 car.
