Acura has teased the full reveal of its new ARX-05 prototype, set to race in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with Team Penske next season, in a video out today.

Footage includes interviews with a couple key Acura principles and the car’s rollout from its initial shakedown at Circuit Paul Ricard in France. The Oreca 07-based chassis will then feature the Acura branding and bodywork for its Daytona Prototype international (DPi) formula.

The car’s full reveal will take place at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, part of the prestigious Monterey Automotive Week, August 18.

No drivers have yet been named to the program although Juan Pablo Montoya is all-but-officially confirmed while Helio Castroneves remains strongly linked to a full-time seat.
