The powerplant inside the new NSX is no slouch. So it's no surprise they didn't need to do much to modify it for racing. In fact, the 3.5-liter, 75-degree, twin turbocharged DOHC V-6 inside the Acura NSX GT3 Race Car is built using the same design specs as the engine in the production car. The race version is instantly identifiable, however, thanks to custom carbon fiber bodywork that reduces the car's weight while adding aero components like a wing spoiler, underbody diffuser and enlarged hood vents for better cooling. Like the road car, the GT3 will be built at the company's Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, and should receive its FIA classification this fall.
It has the same HY-KERS drivetrain system and performance figures as the original. It sits on the same rims. Yet it's what the Ferrari LaFerrari Spider is lacking that sets it apart. Namely, a roof. Available with a removable carbon fiber hard top or soft top, the car lets you enjoy open air motoring and supercar performance at the same time. Although it looks similar, the Spider has undergone major modifications to the chassis and aerodynamics in order to reach the same stiffness and drag coefficient as the coupe, even with the top off. No pricing information has been announced, but seeing as how all available examples have already been sold, it really doesn't matter.
