Acura NSX GT3 Takes on Tough Competition in Endurance Contest

Acura NSX

Out on the street, Acura is noted for, among other assets, its design, safety and performance. Our customers at CardinaleWay Acura are familiar with the features that distinguish Acura’s full line of vehicles. Now, to kick off the 2017 racing season, a special-edition Acura NSX GT3 will go head-to-head against a line-up of other prestigious vehicles on the track. Acura will field two teams, each with a pair of the high-performance vehicles, at the 2017 IMS WeatherTech SportsCar Championship for the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Championship. The newly launched Acura Motorsports program has named some of the top teams and drivers on the racing circuit to pilot this sleek, precision-engineered power plant.


Among the defining features of the 2017 NSX is a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive power unit – an engineering achievement that stands alone against the competition. Its engine is a 75-degree, 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged DOHC V-6 dynamo. Many of the GT3’s features meet the same specs of those in the 2017 Acura NSX V6 hybrid production model, including its V-6 hybrid engine with three electric motors; its lightweight, ultra-rigid body; valvetrain, pistons and dry-sump lubrication system.




In November, the Acura NSX GT3 began two days of preseason testing to prepare for the January 2017 season. The Acura Motorsports team was one of eight other teams to practice on the track at the Daytona International Speedway. Acura’s competition in January includes an elite roster of racing vehicles: Lexus RCF GT3; Porsche 911 GT3 R; Mercedes AMG GT3; Audi R8 LMS GT3; and Lamborghini Huracan GT3.


The #AcuraNSXGT3 is ready for an intense endurance contest. In the meantime, you can get behind the wheel of the 2017 Acura NSX hybrid, our next-generation supercar, which, according to the experts, redefines the sportscar driving experience. Visit our website at www.CardinaleWayAcura.
