Acura have chosen the 2016 SEMA Show, in Las Vegas, to display their NSX GT3, which will celebrate its North American racing debut next year.
Featuring a custom body work and aerodynamic components such as the larger hood vents for better engine cooling, underbody diffuser and massive rear wing, the racing NSX, which uses the same architecture as the street-legal variant, is adding to the brand’s competition legacy.
The Japanese company has chosen a different approach when it comes to showcasing the NSX GT3 at SEMA from November 1 to 4, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, as rather than touching the red carpet, the vehicle sits on a custom trailer. Created in collaboration between Acura Design and the Jimmy Shine Workshop, it features a perimeter chassis inspired by the racer’s roll cage, and two hydraulic pumps that lift and lower the bed.
As a final touch, the trailer is powder coated in Pearl White and sits on 20-inch wheels, identical to the ones used on the car responsible for towing: a 2017 MDX. The SUV benefits from a special wrap as well, tinted windows, black-out suspension components, orange brake calipers and a few extra touches that will be highlighted during the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) event.
