Just this week, we informed you that the final version of the upcoming NSX Type S will be the latest in Honda’s high-powered hybrid, but that’s not the only news regarding the brand’s flagship. HPD (Honda Performance Development) has just announced that an improved NSX GT3 will be seen in action on circuits around the world next year.
If you remember, the NSX GT3 was presented to racing teams four years ago, draped in a carbon fiber body, without a hybrid system but fitted with a six-speed sequential drivetrain and at a price of around half a million dollars. Since then, the teams jumping behind the wheel of the race-only offering have certainly seen success, including 25 category wins in IMSA GTD and SRO GT, with the car currently being the constructors’ champion GTD and SRO GT.
This time around, the NSX GT3 gets the Evo22 tag added to its name along with a few updates to make it even more competitive. That is, improved intercoolers for better load cooling and more consistent performance, regardless of weather conditions. Honda also changed both the spring rates and the suspension geometry to maximize grip.
For endurance runners, increasing the size of the fluid reservoir will allow them to spend more time on the track and less time to refuel, while unspecified revisions to the wheel system should allow for changes. faster tires. There are also new variant options for the headlights and air conditioning system, as well as an FIA mandated rain light.
Continuity of continents
Like the NSX GT3 that came before it, the new Evo22 chassis will come from Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio before being delivered to JAS Motorsport in Milan. There, the experts will take care of the final assembly and all the adjustments necessary to deliver a turnkey racing car. They will also provide technical support for vehicles as well as sales of spare parts. Approved until 2024, the project is already green light and underway.
