Honda announce new evolution of NSX GT3

A new evolution of Honda’s NSX GT3 will debut next year, which has been catered to both team and driver feedback from the current model.

Raced throughout Europe and the United States where it has won multiple IMSA Class titles, the NSX GT3 has competed on Australian soil just once at the 2020 Bathurst 12 Hour for the opening round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge.

Production is split between American-based Honda Performance Development and Italian team JAS Motorsport, which also spearheads the Japanese manufacturer’s Civic Type R TCR program.

Designated the Evo22, the new model features upgraded engine intercoolers to ensure consistent performance in varying conditions globally, revised spring rates and suspension geometry adjustments, increased fluid tank sizes for endurance racing, wheel system revisions for faster tyre changes and a new mandated FIA rain light.

Further to this, air conditioning and improved headlights will be available at certain specification levels.

“We are extremely pleased to announce this latest development of the already highly-successful Acura NSX GT3,” said John Whiteman, HPD Manager, Commercial Motorsports.

“While the NSX has won races and titles in some of the world’s most prestigious GT3 series, we believe in constantly improving our products and providing the best possible equipment and support for our Acura Motorsports teams.”

Orders are currently being taken for the NSX GT3 Evo22 of which homologation carries through until 2024.

Honda is the latest manufacturer to announce a new upgrade following BMW’s release of the new M4 GT3 and Audi’s latest R8 GT3 Evo.
