Just this week, we informed you that the final version of the upcoming NSX Type S would be the last hurrah for Honda’s high-powered hybrid, but that isn’t the only news surrounding the brand’s flagship. HPD (Honda Performance Development) just announced that an enhanced NSX GT3 will be seen in action on racetracks around the globe next year.
If you recall, the NSX GT3 was introduced to race teams four years ago draped in a carbon fiber body, sans hybrid system but fitted with a sequential six-speed transmission—and a price tag of about half a million dollars. Since that time, teams jumping behind the wheel of the race-only offering have certainly found success, including 25 class wins in IMSA GTD and SRO GT competition, with the car currently serving as the GTD and SRO GT Manufacturer’s champion.
This time around, the NSX GT3 gets the Evo22 label added to its name along with some updates to help make it even more competitive. Namely, improved intercoolers for better charge cooling and more consistent performance, regardless of weather conditions. Honda also modified both the spring rates and suspension geometry to maximize grip. For the full story, check out this article from Motor Trend.
