Acura is taking the ILX racing.
The new ILX Endurance Race Car was designed specifically to win at the 25 Hours of Thunder Hill, where it will run against cars from Porsche, BMW and more. The car will compete in the NASA Endurance Series.
While the exterior bodywork was kept looking stock, the innards of this car are anything but. The engine gets unique mounts, a lightened flywheel and racing clutch, forged pistons and connecting rods, racing cams, low restriction intake and exhaust and blueprinted fuel injectors. Everything else a race car needs, like a full roll cage, race seats, upgraded suspension and tires, a fuel cell and more are all present on this ILX racer.
Acura also announced that the new NSX will be the official pace car for the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
The ILX Endurance Race Car will debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show.
