Acura is now offering the Acura NSX GT3 race car for sale around the world ahead of the 2018 racing season. The exposed carbon, race-ready Acura NSX GT3 is offered for sale at a starting price of €465,000 ($543,000).
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.
The NSX GT3 is based on the road-going NSX and is produced at the same plant in Ohio. Both models are powered by the same 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6. The biggest difference is that the regular NSX uses a hybrid system. but the NSX GT3 is only powered by the V6 and a six-speed, sequential-shift racing gearbox that sends the power to the rear wheels.
“We are extremely pleased with the progress and success of the NSX GT3 in our inaugural season,” said Art St. Cyr, President of HPD. “Winning at Detroit and Watkins Glen, two very different circuits, in this highly competitive class illustrates the breadth of capabilities of the NSX GT3. We look forward to seeing the car in Victory Circle at tracks around the world in 2018 and beyond.”
The NSX GT3 race car will compete against the best from 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.
