2016 Acura NSX pace car for Pikes Peak revealed

The second generation Acura NSX will be putting on the pace car suit for this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

It has received a racing-inspired livery and will lead the field of 140 entrants to the top of the 14,110-foot Colorado mountain on June 28 during the 93rd edition of the 12.4-mile, 156-turn hill climb. For this occasion, Acura is setting up no less than 24 cameras on the course to obtain a 360-degree series of images with the much-awaited NSX.

Honda R&D Americas was in charge of working on the car which will be driven by two-time Pikes Peak winner Sage Marie who is senior manager of American Honda Public Relations. He will be behind the wheel of the Audi R8-rivaling supercar featuring a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive developing “north of 550 horsepower” thanks to a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine and three electric motors.
