Yeah, the NSX look is nice. My first thought seeing the images this week was the NSX hood line matches that front wing.

hondafan37 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

The image looks dark but reminds me of the first livery of the ARX 01 of Highcroft Racing.

The rear fenders have a weird shape in that picture. They look like openings for cooling and not closed off like the distinct Oreca design.

Draft homolgation is supposed to be finalized for existing DPIs by the end of the season, per IMSA's Geoff Carter:

http://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/im...-coming-weeks/

HPD will be allowed to run under draft homologation like everyone else this year. Article also shows how much BOP goes into DPI. You can make whatever changes you want it seems, but you have to re-homologate those bits in the wind tunnel or the dyno at NASCAR's R&D center.

Also, any big changes would have to be addressed with the ACO and the WEC Endurance Committee before IMSA signs off on them.

Also anyone know yet what mechanical package from the Oreca 07 will carry over? Such as the gearbox and other elements?

"There’s a specific process within IMSA to address any reliability issues, based on a demonstrated need and applied for to the IMSA Technical Committee on the DPis. Otherwise, it’s straight through the FIA and ACO."

I don't really get that part, unless "otherwise" here means standard global LMP2.

DPIs and LMP2s still share tubs. Any changes involving that or certain other elements (like the off limits areas, such as front/rear diffusers, floor, nose box, tub) would have to be re-homologated by the ACO prior to IMSA rubber stamping it.

Look at the inside of the rear fenders. Not the big dark part at the front of them. Maybe just a reflection, or part of the livery but they look like little openings.

Yeah, I think they would look better following the 'Acura' eye line.

From that angle, the LED running lights look really strange. We need to see a front-on shot of the car, perhaps it may look better. But I assume we wont see any additional pictures until the 18th.

*BUMP* Speaking of which..... -> https://www.facebook.com/Acura/video...5567083622410/

The livery could be better, as could the lighting arrangement. But otherwise, I wouldn't mind more prototypes looking like this.
