Acura will rework the GT3 version of the NSX for the 2022 season. The Evo version aims to eliminate the weaknesses of the current model and deliver more consistent performance in different conditions.
Production of the street version of the Honda NSX will end in 2022 with a Final Edition . However, the Japanese athlete can live on for a few more years on the racetrack. The Acura brand, under which the model will be sold in the USA, has announced that it will homologate a revised GT3 version by 2024.
The refreshed Acura NSX GT3 gets the additional designation "Evo22", which is accompanied by a large number of technical upgrades. The engineers give the racing car improved intercoolers so that full power is always available even in hot races and no performance is lost.
The cushioning has also been fundamentally revised. Not only were new springs installed, but the entire suspension geometry was changed. A larger tank is now housed for endurance racing. The engineers also lent a hand to the attachment of the wheels so that tire changes can be completed more quickly in the future.
In addition, the Acura NSX GT3 was given a special rear light for rain races, as is now required by the FIA. Various options are now also available for the headlights. When it comes to air conditioning, buyers can now also choose between several versions.
Homologation until 2024
The manufacturer has not yet given any information about prices. The new model can be ordered now. The manufacturer promises that technical support will continue until at least 2024. Incidentally, the body shell of the NSX GT3 is built at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. The racing car is then assembled at JAS Motorsport in Milan, from where the European customer teams are also supplied with spare parts.
The Acura NSX GT3 has been on the racetracks of this world since 2017. Since then, the Japanese racer has clinched 25 victories in the GT classes of the IMSA (USA) and SRO (Europe) series. "After victories and titles in the world's most famous GT3 series, we are now committed to constant improvement of our product in order to provide our Acura customer teams with the best possible equipment," said Honda Motorsport sales manager John Whiteman.
