Acura Unveils Contrasting New Liveries for NSX GT3

Both cars commemorate corporate milestones

We've been waiting for the final race-spec version of the Acura NSX GT3 car we saw earlier this year, and from the looks of the new livery photos, Honda's luxury brand is going to have one of the best-looking cars on the starting grid.

When the two NSX GT3s take their starting positions on the grid at the 24 Hours of Daytona next month, each will have an inverted mirror image livery of the other NSX. Car number 86, numbered in reference to Acura's founding in 1986, arrives with a black nose that fades into a gray crosshatch design toward the rear. Car number 93 commemorates the founding year of the Honda Performance Development division, and wears the inverse of number 86. Both cars will fly the banners of Acura Motorsports and Michael Shank Racing, the outfit that will campaign them for the 2017 Weathertech SportsCar Championship season.

Like most of the cars on the Daytona grid, the race-spec NSX differs from the production car. Honda rips out the trick all-wheel-drive hybrid drivetrain in the street supercar and supplants it with a rear-wheel-drive layout using the same 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine. To comply with class rules, the engine is limited to around 500 hp.

Fans will catch their first glimpse of the new color scheme at the upcoming "Roar Before the 24" at Daytona, when IMSA allows teams to participate in an open testing period before the competition.
