2017 Mazda RT24-P Daytona Prototype
Mazda's IMSA Prototype, The RT24-P.
So here is Mazda's IMSA Prototype, The RT24-P. It will come complete with a 600bhp engine, 2.0L Four Cylinders and will sit on a Riley Mk.30 chassis developed by Riley Technologies and Multimac.
Well it definitely looks the part and slightly reflecting their eagerly anticipated RX vision. This is probably thanks to their Soul Of Motion design philosophy which they are currently adapting through their range at Mazda.
Mazda designer Ken Saward said: “We discovered that applying the KODO design philosophy to the surfaces and the silhouette of the car enabled us to create a dynamic, purposeful-looking design and a very aerodynamically efficient one.”
Mazda are pinning their hopes on the collaboration and chassis design by Riley with them being veterans in the championships having 99 races wins already to its name.
