When creating a virtual endurance racing Acura (Honda Americaâ€™s luxury brand) for the year 2025, JoÃ£o Melo sought inspiration from the current crop of LMP1-class prototype race cars like Audiâ€™s R15. Still, his was no blind charge into the future. Thereâ€™s a healthy reference to the past as well in the form of the Chaparral 2A from the early â€™60s. For motivation, JoÃ£o envisages a highly advanced, ultra-efficient Honda rotary engine running on biofuel. The result is a fast, frugal single-seater, closed cockpit racer with a predatory front end and retro-themed, integrated wing rear â€“ an evocative collusion of a bygone era and one still to come.
