The Acura would be look better without that kind of wing at the front, with just the new nose they made. However, it is great to see a new car.

About the Mazda, I hope Multimatic make an entire new chassis

I was just thinking about this...

I bet the Nissan's "wing" was designed to impact the original design as little as possible. In the case of Oreca and Penske, I bet that really is a wing and is very efficient while being part of the "design language" at the same time.

Looking forward to seeing what the lights and bodywork looks like when it's in proper livery. I do find the dazzel camo funny, given that from the front wheels backwards, it's an Oreca (with some added slots on the top of the sidepod). So we're trying to hide an Oreca, and they'll show off the front end soon enough anyway. I guess this camo is more for coolness rather than anything else nowadays.

It's nowhere near similar to the standard Oreca.

Can I suggest you new glasses?

Actually, the protruding center nose section with what appears to be a vent is reminiscent of the Porsche Spyder ...

Looks like the bridge wing is going to feature on this like the ESM Nissan Ligier. Not the prettiest solution, but let's see how it looks when it's done.

I can't even follow that styling. That hideous thing actually looks like another Nissan, not an Acura.



LMP2 cars with high downforce fenders and maybe a vanity panel across the top of the nose to make an iffy fake grille is a pretty weak outcome for all of this.

No different than the relatively minor changes that Cadillac did to the Dallara.

You have to remember that the Riley was designed for DPI first, not the other way around as with Oreca and Onroak (it's debatable if Dallara started the Caddy first or their customer car).

Also, the following elements can't be changed from the base car to the DPI (or vice versa):

Tub/chassis, nose box, front diffuser, rear diffuser, floor between diffusers. That basically leaves unstressed body panels. So front and rear fenders, side pods, engine cover and tail section sans crash structure.

I think that we got a bit spoiled by what Mazda did. But as pointed out, Multimatic/Riley designed it as a DPI first, then the base car.

And you're surprised after the fit they threw about the bodywork?

Also, this nose.

They would be stupid to change the design more than needed, the 07 is the best base P2 package available. Also not convinced that nose "wing" isn't aero neutral, it looks like the upper surface is longer than the underside (lift) + angle of attack, interesting.

Yeah that nose that isn't being used on any of their cars anymore.

I am going to wait until we see what it looks like painted up. The Caddy DPi out of the box didn't have a whole lot going on either.
