Acura NSX GT3 Customer Racing up for grabs

Acura NSX GT3 Customer Racing up for grabs

Acura NSX GT3 took to the race tracks last year and won many laurels in the American racing series such as the IMSA WeatherTech Championship. Now after almost 50,000 miles of track testing, the Japanese carmaker has announced the NSX GT3 for sale to racing teams and private owners around the world starting from 2018 season. 

Like its track-focused GT3 brethren, the customer racing NSX GT3 uses the same twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 that also does duty in the road-going production spec NSX. However, the race car ditched the hybrid motor system of the road-going NSX, thus saving 450kg of weight. Power output is in excess of 500bhp depending on FIA/Racing Series regulations. All the raw power is sent to rear wheels via a six-speed sequential transmission.

Braking is taken care of by six-piston Brembos up front and a four-piston unit at the rear. The large wing and other aero bits help with the required downforce to keep the car planted in all racing conditions that the GT3 NSX might participate in. There is an FIA compliant roll-cage inside the stripped down cabin of the racecar.

Compliant to the FIA GT3 regulations, the NSX GT3 is eligible for racing in championships across the globe in more than two dozen racing series including the Blancpain GT Series and the Nurburgring 24 Hour race in Europe, the Pirelli World Challenge and IMSA SportsCar series in North America, the Blancpain GT Asia Series and GT Asia championship, the Super GT’s GT300 class held in Japan to name a few.

The NSG GT3 is built at the same production line alongside its road going version at the Ohio facility, while the final GT3 elements are bolted on in Italy under JAS Motorsport expertise. Pricing for the Acura (or Honda outside of America) NSX GT3 is 465,000 Euros, however, Acura will only consider a partnership with racing clients who demonstrate the financial and management resources necessary to field an exceptional program. In return, the carmaker will assist each NSX GT3 client with trackside support to help them reach the podium.
