You tend to think of race cars just in terms of how much faster or slower they are than other cars they’re competing against. Rarely do you get to think of their speed in isolation. With that in mind, get a load of how f’ing fast the new GT3-spec Acura NSX looks all on its own.
Back in 2010, BMW decided that what made the most sense for its production-based racing program was to run its sporty Z4 roadster.
I awoke this morning to a surprise: the Mercedes AMG GT that races in the GT3 category is not called the Mercedes AMG GT GT3, as I halfway hoped it would be. Instead it is the Mercedes AMG GT3. Hm.
Acura released photos of its newest NSX GT3 racer out at Michigan’s Gingerman Raceway in all its naked carbon glory. That’s the best kind of glory—let’s be honest. Please, come drool with us.
Acura will race the new NSX here in America as a GT3 car. That means no AWD, and that means no fancy hybrid tech.
McLaren’s customer team Tekno Autosports won the Bathurst 12 Hour with the new 650S GT3 and set a new lap record. Thanks to that, you win new wallpapers.
In response to the tragic incident this year where a GT3 car flipped and killed a spectator, the Deutscher Motor Sport Bund who governs racing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife will institute a number of changes for 2016, including a 10 percent reduction in horsepower in the SP7, SP9/GT3, SP-Pro and SP-X classes.
The new Liberty Walk (and other) aftermarket kits for exotic cars are cool, but these Ferrari 488 factory race cars do widebody better.
BMW has given us a glorious double-whammy of M6s and red and blue stripes as they finally showed their M6 GT3 race car and the similarly-livried M6 Competition edition, available to us mere mortals. Well, mortals with money. These are both fantastic-looking cars.
Here’s a video that’s so insane, it’s been compared to driving Forza on Easy mode with all the assists on. It doesn’t look real, but it’s what happened when Jono Lester restarted in 32nd position at the Australian GT Championship’s first race of the 2015 Clipsal 500 weekend. Watch this, and I’ll even offer to help…
Some cars just beg of you, plead with you to go faster. That’s what Matt Sanders of Autocar thought of the new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 after driving one flat out on track. The fruit of Lambo’s first factory racing effort works better at higher speeds. Go faster. Why aren’t you going faster? You should be going faster.
It's been a pretty trying time here at the well-named Green Hell. Unless you've been locked away for the past week, you've most likely heard of Jann Mardenborough's horrific crash here at the Nordschleife during the opening round of the Nürburgring Endurance Series, otherwise known as the VLN.
Several racing classes were banned from racing at Deutsche Motor Sport Bund-sanctioned events at the Nürburgring following last weekend's horrific accident. Now, per Sportscar365, that ban has been lifted for SP10 cars, but was extended to the Cup2, SP8T, E1-XP1, E1-XP2 and E1-XP classes, plus GT cars in H4.
The Audi R8 LMS has been making Porsches look bad in GT3 races ever since 2009 and here's the second generation of the car. The main focus appears to be safety.
We got the first official pics this afternoon, and now we have more info. Guess what? The Mercedes-AMG GT3 will race with an engine we all know and love: the 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 from the SLS AMG. Welcome back, old friend.
When I first saw the Mercedes-AMG GT, I have to admit that I was a little underwhelmed. Without the SLS's gullwing doors, it was a pretty shape, but felt like it was missing something. Now Mercedes will make a GT3 version, and that's all been fixed in the sketches. Everything looks better in GT3 trim!
Ex-Formula One driver Bruno Senna will be joining the McLaren GT team as a factory driver for selected events this year. Fans of Ayrton's nephew, rejoice!
The BMW M6 GT3 debuted in the flesh today with the biggest windshield banner I've seen in quite some time. I mean, that's like, half the windshield, guys. I know it's angled, but c'mon. It looks like they've left the poor driver a glorified porthole.
