Mazda RT24-P Front Quarter

One of the biggest surprises at the LA Auto Show wasn't a concept car or the much-talked about Jaguar I Pace electric SUV. Mazda pulled the curtains on a new entry that will compete under the Daytona Prototype international (DPi) rules in the Prototype category and boy oh boy, what a race car it is.  

Showcasing Mazda's KODO design language, the RT24-P will be powered by the Mazda MZ-2.0T, which is a 600-hp, 2.0-liter, turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine. The car will be competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and will make its debut in January at the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona.
