Acura NSX GT3 Race Car

Acura NSX GT3 Race CarWhat’s unclear, however, is exactly how Acura planned to race the NSX. St. Cyr tells us Acura shopped around the NSX to various racing series to try to enter the supercar as a hybrid, but was shut down at every turn. “We couldn’t get any sanctioning body accept the production car’s hybrid technology in a race series, but this car is still a fulfillment of our earlier commitment to take the NSX to the track,” he said.

The NSX GT3 gets its power from a a 3.5 litre twin-turbocharged DOHC V6 engine. The mill uses the same design specifications as the engine in the production car, including the block, heads, valvetrain, crankshaft, pistons and dry sump lubrication system.

In contrast, the NSX GT3 car has a single engine, a 3.5-liter, 75-degree, twin-turbocharged DOHC V6. It’s based on the same design specifications as that in the production car – including the block, heads, valvetrain, crankshaft, pistons, and dry sump lubrication system – but gets a brand new gearbox.

The NSX GT3 was first developed by Honda’s Japan race engineering division, and tested in Japanese and European race tracks. The automaker’s North American racing arm, however, is taking care of the finishing touches in terms of development and testing, as well as final homologation to FIA GT3 global racing standards.
