The Acura NSX will pace this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, leading a group of 140 racers up the 14,110-foot mountain before the official festivities start on June 28. The NSX is one of four Acura cars that will be making the dash up the hill this weekend, with the ILX, TLX and a previous generation NSX to also be driven to the mountain’s summit.
The pace car, set to be driven by Honda senior public relations manager Sage Marie, is sporting a standout white, red and black livery with matching red calipers and black wheels. Apart from the special livery, the NSX is exactly like every other model that will roll off Honda’s new Performance Manufacturing Center production line in Marysville, Ohio.
To make sure the pace run is on their files forever, Honda has installed 24 different cameras along the Pikes Peak course to film the NSX as it drives up the hill. The footage will be used to put together a 360-degree video which will obviously be posted to the brand’s various social media channels.
You can catch the NSX as it leads this year’s Pikes Peak field when the pace run kicks off at 7:40 a.m. Mountain time, or 9:40 a.m. ET.
