Acura’s new NSX GT3 chal­lenger made its maiden test ap­pear­ance at Ginger­man Race­way in Mi­ami last week ahead of its ex­pected race de­but next sea­son.

The new machine is pow­ered by a 3.5-litre twin­turbo V6 en­gine ca­pa­ble of cre­at­ing around 600bhp and has a six-speed se­quen­tial gear­box. It has been built by Honda Per­for­mance De­vel­op­ment (HPD) in Cal­i­for­nia and will un­dergo FIA ho­molo­ga­tion later this year ahead of a full rac­ing pro­gramme in Amer­ica and Europe next sea­son.

“Build­ing on the very solid foun­da­tion of the pro­duc­tion NSX, we’re mak­ing steady progress in our de­vel­op­ment and look­ing for­ward to cam­paign­ing the GT3 race car next year,” said HPD pres­i­dent Art St Cyr.
