Acura NSX GT3 Walkaround

Ryan Eversley did a walk-around of both the GT3 model and the normal NSX vehicle, pointing out a few differences between the two. The GT3 uses a tuned version of the NSX stock engine and Acura stuck in some factory turbochargers too.

Nice ! I thought that the glass was still there but vented in the rear but they ditched the glass completely. Wasn't too sure if that was regulation legal but I guess it is.

They deleted the hybrid system from the engine! That would mean the GT3 model is lighter and that a all gas model is possible if Acura ever wants to go that route.

Should be drastically lighter. I can't find any direct numbers on it though unfortunately. But it is priced ! $168,400.

I didn't hear anything about an "extract" gearbox but I'm pretty sure it comes with a sequential ?

Maybe he said extra? I hear something that starts with an "e" and then the word gearbox. He said it around 3:03 in the video.

Now I heard it ! It's an "Xtrac" gearbox. It's the name of the company that builds racing application transmissions such as the sequential one that they're using in the GT3

If that's the case then its even better for them since it puts more confidence in the vehicle, something that's really important when it comes to a vital area like this.
