Acura NSX GT3 Making Public Testing Debut At Mid-Ohio

The Acura NSX GT3 is set to make its public testing debut later today during the practice sessions of the Pirelli World Challenge held at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Behind the wheel of the potent new race car will be development driver Peter Kox and due to the complexity of Mid Ohio, the automaker thinks it will prove the perfect spot to test out the new racer. Additionally, the track is located near the NSX’s R&D and manufacturing facility making it particularly handy.

The Acura NSX GT3 is expected to receive homologation for the FIA GT3 class in the coming months and will start GT racing across North America next year.

As with the road car, the NSX GT3 is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine and actually features the same block, heads, crankshaft, valvetrain, pistons and dry sump lubrication system. While the road car also draws power from three electric motors, the GT3 race car makes do without.

Meanwhile, the bodywork of the racer is dramatically different to the street car and includes a plethora of advanced aerodynamic components, including a massive fixed rear wing, a large splitter up front, quad canards and a huge diffuser at the rear.
