While the story is that the Acura NSX prototype will lap Mid-Ohio ahead of today's IndyCar race, then be quickly spirited back off to secrecy, the reality is that the car's been out in the open this weekend.

These photos are from the LAT Photo pool and clearly show the car, sitting in the open and cruising the track. It's also covered with GoPros, so expect some quality video after the "official" debut lap happens this afternoon.

The lead video posted above is the newest from Acura, featuring the startup sound and track roar. It makes the right noises.
