Honda Launches Global NSX GT3 Customer Racing Program

Honda has announced it is making the NSX GT3 race car available to customer teams worldwide, starting from the 2018 season.

The race car’s bodyshell and engine are set to be produced alongside the road-going NSX in Ohio, while JAS Motorsport will assemble the race car and provide support to racing programs in Europe, Asia and South America. Orders from North America will be taken by Honda Performance Development and from Japan by Mugen.

The Honda NSX GT3 is eligible to compete in more than two dozen FIA race events around the world, including the Blancpain GT Series, Nurburgring 24 Hour race in Europe, the Pirelli World Challenge and IMSA SportsCar series in North America, the Blancpain GT Asia Series and GT Asia championship, the Super GT’s GT300 class in Japan and more.

Power comes from a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine based on the one found in the production NSX, mated to a six-speed sequential racing gearbox that sends power to the rear axle.

“Honda are extremely proud to launch the NSX GT3 Customer Racing Programme,” said Robert Watherston, Head of Motorsport at Honda Motor Europe. “With the customer support of Honda, JAS Motorsport, HPD and Mugen, we look forward to seeing the NSX fighting for victory in the most prestigious GT3 races in the world in 2018 and beyond.”

The Honda NSX GT3 is offered for sale at a starting price of 465,000 euros ($543k in current exchange rates) as delivered by JAS Motorsport, with additional options and complete customer support available.
