Classic cars may be the main focus at Monterey Car week, but it’s also where marques show some of their newest, sexiest concept vehicles. This year, we were treated to a handful of design studies from Mercedes-Maybach, Aston Martin, Infiniti, and more.

Acura ARX-05 Prototype Race Car
Acura announced it would get back into prototype racing with the unveiling of its new ARX-05 Daytona prototype (DPi) racecar. In partnership with Team Penske, the ARX-05 will make its racing debut at next year’s Rolex 24 in Daytona and run the entire WeatherTech Sports Car Championship in 2018. The car is powered by a production-based twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter V-6 engine and uses Acura-specific bodywork. Acura already runs its NSX in the GTD class in the WeatherTech series, so the company is clearly doubling down on its motorsports efforts.
