Acura Motorsports has announced an enhanced Acura NSX GT3, designated the NSX GT3 Evo, will compete on racetracks throughout the world in 2019.

Based on the race-winning Acura NSX production model, the latest evolution of the multiple race-winning NSX GT3 features a number of important revisions aimed at delivering improved performance and reliability to customer racing teams around the globe.

Revised bodywork, including a new front splitter, diffuser and rear bumper, will reduce drag to create higher top speeds, improve cooling and enhance both balance and driveability for an even wider range of amateur and professional drivers.

New turbochargers will improve throttle response, boost control, and fuel economy and will be retrofitted to all existing NSX GT3s in addition to the new NSX GT3 Evo.

Newly built cars will also feature improved hardware and calibrations for the anti-lock braking system (ABS), and an upgraded Bosch display and data-logging unit to increase efficiency and enhance the driver experience.

These improvements will also be available as Variant Supply (VF) to retrofit to existing NSX GT3s.

The 3.5-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 engines are built alongside their production-vehicle counterparts at the Anna Engine Plant in Ohio.

They use the same design specification, including the block, heads, valve train, crankshafts, pistons and dry-sump lubrication system.

Several racing modifications to the car, including a six-speed, sequential-shift racing gearbox, state-of-the-art chassis and aerodynamic package, and the very latest in FIA-standard safety systems, complete the ultimate mid-engined GT3 racer.

The NSX GT3 made its debut in late 2016 and has tackled some of the world’s iconic GT races, including the 24 Hours of Daytona and Spa, the 12 Hours of Sebring’ Petit Le Mans and the FIA GT World Cup in Macau.
