Learn more about Acura Motorsports, and keep your eyes out for our models as they hit the track!



The ARX-05 is Acura Motorsports’ newest race car. This model comes powered by the race-proven Acura AR35TT twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine. It’s based on the ORECA 07 chassis, and it features very Acura-specific bodywork.


Now available for the 2018 season is the NSX GT3, a supercar that led its class at the 24 Hours of Daytona and won the Grand Prix of Detroit. It is dedicated to racing, and racing alone. Noteworthy components include a multi-link double wishbone suspension, a lightweight aero trim, and an innovative chassis with parts directly from Ohio’s Acura factory. Additional features include:

  • Twin-turbocharged V6 engine
  • Drive-by-Wire throttle system
  • XTRAC semi-automatic six-speed sequential transmission
  • BREMBO brakes and calipers
  • SACHS five-way adjustable dampers
  • Forged aluminum wheels
  • Data logger


The vehicles in the Acura Motorsports ring are set to compete on the international stage in the months ahead. The NSX GT3, for example, raced the 2017 SCCA Pirelli World Challenge in the supercar segment, which included races in St Petersburg, Florida; Long Beach, California; Alton, Virginia; Bowmanville, Ontario; Lakeville, Connecticut; Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin; Lexington, Ohio; Tooele, Utah; and other locations, with the series wrapping up in October 2017. Acura teamed up with RealTime Racing for this 11-race series in an effort to test the limits of what a production car is capable of accomplishing.

Meanwhile, Acura Motorsports also returned to North American endurance racing, with an appearance at the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, also wrapping up in October 2017. For this circuit, Acura partnered with the Michael Shank Racing team to again promote and prove the NSX GT3’s performance capabilities. At the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, a pair of new Acura ARX-05 Daytona Prototype International entries will hit the track under the Team Penske banner. The competition begins in January 2018.
