Specifically, it's a throwback to the Comptech Racing Acura-Spice GTP Lights race cars.

The old cars ran modified versions of the V6 engine found in the first NSX.

Of course, modern prototypes are vastly more complex than the old-school ones, but adapting the orange-and-white livery to a modern car results in something rather pretty.
