Honda, in collaboration with JAS Motorsport, Honda Performance Development (HPD) and Mugen will market the NSX GT3 globally for the 2018 season.
Following multiple victories in the inaugural season of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in North America, the Honda NSX GT3 is ready to compete in more than two dozen FIA events around the world, including:
Blancpain GT Series, VLN of Germany, Pirelli World Challenge and IMSA SportsCar series in North America, Blancpain GT Asia Series and GT Asia Championship, Super GT in Japan, Australian GT Championship and Intercontinental GT Challenge.
Orders for the NSX GT3 can now be placed with JAS Motorsport, responsible for sales and customer service in Europe, Asia (including China) and South America; HPD in North America and Mugen in Japan.
The NSX GT3 was designed by Honda R&D in Japan, in collaboration with JAS Motorsport in Milan, Italy. The development of the vehicle has been carried out as a collaborative project over the last three years that has also been supported by HPD since the end of 2015, with more than 85.000 km of tests completed. A first series of 12 units will be produced to be ready at the start of the 2018 racing season.
The racing version of the 6-liter V3,5 engine with two turbochargers is manufactured together with the other components of the vehicle at the Anna plant in Ohio, United States. This engine uses the same design specifications as the series production NSX (including block, valve train, crankshaft, pistons, and dry sump lubrication system).
The six-speed sequential gearbox supplies power to the rear wheels of the NSX GT3, while the next-generation chassis and aerodynamics complete the sports car's impressive performance credentials.
The NSX GT3 through JAS Motorsport is available for an initial sale price of € 465.000, which includes the carbon fiber body. As a complement, future customers will also have at their disposal a comprehensive package of support options including spare parts service, training and engineering services.
The NSX GT3 follows in the wake of the incredible racing legacy of the first generation of the NSX, with victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans (GT2 category) in 1995 and three Super GT crowns (including the former All Japan GT Championship). between 2000 and 2009.[sam_pro id = 0_1 codes = ”true”]
