The new Acura NSX GT3 has been unveiled at the ongoing New York International Auto Show 2016. Based on the road going Acura NSX (Honda NSX outside US), the new GT3 challenger will be homologated as a FIA GT3 racecar once testing is completed later this year. Acura plans to field the NSX GT3 across various GT racing series in North America starting in 2017.
The powertrain on the new NSX GT3 is similar to that of the production variant, minus the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system. That said, the NSX GT3 uses a 3.5 liter twin-turbo V6 delivering power to the rear wheels via a 6-speed sequential-shift racing gearbox. The road going version uses a 9-speed dual clutch transmission to deliver power to all four wheels.
