Mazda unveiled its new Mazda RT24-P endurance race car at the 2016 LA Auto Show.
The RT24-P will make its racing debut at the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona in late January where it will compete in the prototype class.
The prototype racer will be powered by the turbocharged, four-cylinder Mazda MZ-2.0T engine which makes approximately 600 horsepower. I wonder if that'll fit in my Miata.
The new racer was designed with Mazda's Kodo Soul of Motion design language.
I'm seeing hints of the RX-8 in the fascia and fender arches, but only the slightest hints.
The name RT24-P indicates the 2.0-liter engine, the four cylinders and the prototype racing class.
Mazda worked with the aerodynamicists and engineers at Multimatic to massage the RT24-P's new bodywork.
You may recognize Multimatic as the group behind the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2's unorthodox suspension.
Underpinning the new bodywork is the new Riley Mk. 30 chassis, developed by Riley Technologies in relationship with Multimatic.
Mazda will be the first team to make use of this new chassis.
