Everything is ready for the launch of the Honda NSX GT3 in Europe and therefore the japanese brand will be very present in the 24 Hours of Spa, most important event of the Blancpain GT Series. The goal to publicize your product and try to convince potential customers of the kindness of his GT3 of face-to-2018 season in which the brand expects to have its first customers in the old continent. It is a step ambitious for the brand, because the NSX GT3 will be the first model GT3 available in the market under the signature of Honda.
however, the Honda NSX GT3 to date has only competed under the logos and colors of Acura, the luxury brand with which Honda sells its models in the united States. In fact, the GT3, the japanese firm has only competed in north America because their sports programs are limited to its presence in the category GTD in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with the team Michael Shank Racing and in the Pirelli World Challenge with the structure of the RealTime Racing. Therefore, the jump to Europe and have the NSX GT3 under the Honda brand is key for the manufacturer.
it should Be remembered that the Honda NSX road has a system of four-wheel drive derivative of its specification hybrid, every time that in its interior hides engine V6 VTEC 3.5 liter, twin-turbo 507-horses associated with two electric motors, one for each front wheel. As this specification is not suitable for the competition, the Honda NSX GT3 loses the part hybrid, and it becomes a vehicle of rear-wheel-drive that you expect to be at the height of the proposed GT3 of brands such as Mercedes, Audi, Ferrari, Bentley, McLaren, Lamborghini or BMW.
