The next-generation Acura NSX supercar will serve as the official pace car in the 93rd running of the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on June 28. With a custom racing-inspired livery, the twin-turbo charged NSX pace car will lead the field of 140 entrants to the top of the 14,110-foot Colorado mountain.

Powering the NSX through the 12.4-mile, 156-turn course is a bespoke 75-degree twin-turbo V6 engine mated to a 9-speed dual clutch transmission and three motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, which delivers ‘on the rails’ cornering capability essential to conquering the demanding mountain course. The pace car was specially prepared for the race by Honda R&D Americas, Inc., which is also leading the global development of the NSX.

The supercar will be driven by Sage Marie, senior manager of American Honda Public Relations, a two-time Pikes Peak competitor and road racer. Marie won the first Pirelli World Challenge B-Spec race in 2012 and has raced in several other major motorsports events, including the 2013 and 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
