The race-winning Acura NSX GT3 race car will be offered for sale around the world ahead of the 2018 racing season. The exposed carbon, race-ready NSX GT3 is offered for sale at a starting price of €465,000.
The Acura NSX GT3 adds to a rich legacy of Acura sports car racing championships, including the 1991, 1992 and 1993 IMSA Camel Lights manufacturer and driver championships, and the 2009 American Le Mans Series manufacturer, driver and team championships in both the LMP1 and LMP2 classes.
“THE ACURA NSX GT3 was built for one purpose: Racing. From its inception, Acura aimed to create a dedicated race car that would strike fear into the competition. But the GT3 is more than dedicated, it is devoted,” says Acura.
With more than 50,000-miles of on-track development and already a multi-race winner in its inaugural season of IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competition, the NSX GT3 is eligible to race in more than two dozen FIA-sanctioned racing series around the world, including:
The Pirelli World Challenge and WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series in North America
The Blancpain GT Series and 24 Hours Nurburgring in Europe
The Blancpain GT Series Asia and GT Asia Series
The Super GT GT300 class in Japan
The Australian GT Championship
The Intercontinental GT Challenge.
The NSX GT3 chassis, including the multi-material body structure and TIG-welded chrome-moly roll cage, is built alongside the production NSX at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio, exclusive worldwide manufacturing facility for the NSXiii. The PMC also operates a repair facility for the NSX GT3.
The production-based 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 racing engines are built alongside their production-vehicle counterparts at the Anna Engine Plant in Anna, Ohioiv. The racing engine uses the same design specifications as the production NSX, including the block, heads, valve train, crankshaft, pistons and dry-sump lubrication system. A six-speed, sequential-shift racing gearbox delivers power to the NSX GT3’s rear wheels. Final assembly is completed at JAS Motorsport in Italy.
Competing in the GTD class of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the GT category of the Pirelli World Challenge in 2017, the NSX GT3 races against premium automotive brands including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche at a wide variety of North American racing circuits, ranging from the tight confines of street courses such as Long Beach and Detroit to traditional road courses like Road America, Canadian Tire Motorsports Park and the wide-open Daytona International Speedway.
The Acura lineup features six distinctive models – the RLX premium, luxury sedan, the TLX performance luxury sedan, the ILX sport sedan, the 5-passenger RDX luxury crossover SUV, and the seven-passenger Acura MDX, America’s all-time best-selling three-row luxury SUV.
