The Acura NSX GT3 Evo is an evolution of the NSX GT3 racecar, which itself is based off the road-going NSX (NC1).
When the second-generation NSX was approved for development, its engineers put pen to paper with racing in mind. The production car and its GT3 sibling were created in tandem with a shared vision: a sophisticated supercar with bare-knuckles racing chops.
Built and tested on the racing circuits of Japan, Europe, and North America, the NSX GT3 made its debut in 2016 and has tackled the world’s most iconic GT races with its 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 NSX engine, modified to meet current FIA requirements.
The NSX GT3 is optimized for high-speed aerodynamics – its larger front cooling intakes, underbody diffuser and large rear wing are the most obvious adjustments – but the NSX family resemblance is clear. And beneath the skin, the GT3 race car shares the same clean-sheet design, multi-material space frame that gives ultimate rigidity to the production car.
After leading its class at 24 Hours of Daytona and winning the Grand Prix of Detroit and the Six Hours of Watkins Glen, NSX GT3 is now available to customers and race teams. Homologated to compete in over two dozen FIA-sanctioned racing series globally, the production-based 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 racing engine is mated with a 6-speed, sequential-shift racing gearbox. The chassis, including the multi-material body structure and TIG–welded chrome–moly roll cage, is built alongside the production NSX at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
The Acura NSX GT3 Evo was added in the Sixth Anniversary Update as a high-end Class B car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1241
- MAX rank: 1468 (+227)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1685 (+217)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +51
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 444
- Nitro Efficiency: 8/12/16
At stock, the NSX GT3 has average acceleration, relatively low top speed, good handling, average drifting and a low nitro stat. Although it resembles the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Black Series in rank distribution, it differs by having slower acceleration and weaker nitro boost.
On short tracks, at MAX PRO with a Tuning Kit, the Acura NSX GT3 Evo is competitive against the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition as it has faster acceleration. On long tracks, an Extra Tank is needed as the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition has superior nitro efficiency.
Due to being competitive against the BMW i8 Coupe and a Class B king, the Acura NSX GT3 Evo will dominate B-Class cups. It also dominates Acura-exclusive events as it is the most powerful Acura model.
The Acura NSX GT3 Evo is usable for credits grinding as its Season 9 race is set on San Diego Harbor and can be completed in ~52 seconds for a payout of 5,570. This was rendered useless after the 2020 Lunar New Year Update's March 2020 hotfix.
