FXMD Time Attack NSX SEMA 2013

Nov 4, 2013

The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is hosting an abundance of legendary vehicles this week, perhaps none more famous (at least in Honda time attack circles) than the FX Motorsports Development (FXMD) Acura NSX. The 1990s-era supercar broke the track record on the so-called American Tsukuba – configuration CW13 at Buttonwillow Raceway Park – in the last two years, setting a high mark of 1:40.379 in 2012 at the hands of Grand-Am pilot Billy Johnson during the combined Super Lap Battle (SLB)/Global Time Attack (GTA) finals.

For sure the hot-shoe behind the wheel was part of the team’s formula for success. But FXMD also built a proper racing machine, which was lightweight (under 2400 pounds), powerful (to the tune of 700-plus horsepower), and sufficiently slippery in the wind.

The car will return to SLB/GTA for one final time, as FXMD has indicated it will retire the battered racecar after this year’s event on November 14. Johnson is also expected to come back to drive the car one more time in hopes that lightning will strike yet again.

For SEMA, the NSX is posted up in the BorgWarner Turbo booth, complete with fresh livery in white. The company is also featuring the new INDYCAR version of the Borg Warner 9180d EFR turbo, as well as the rest of its EFR turbo lineup.
