The livery for Michael Shank Racing’s new Acura NSX GT3 has been revealed in the flesh, ahead of next weekend’s Roar Before the Rolex 24, which will officially kick off the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

Shank shared two images of the No. 86 Acura on social media, which will be driven by Ozz Negri and Jeff Segal in the full 12-round championship, and joined by Tom Dyer and Ryan Hunter-Reay for Daytona.

The sister No. 93 car, featuring a reverse color scheme, will see Andy Lally and Katherine Legge in for the season, with Mark Wilkins and Graham Rahal completing the lineup for the car’s competition debut later this month.

The cars have completed extensive testing in the second half of 2016, including taking part in both IMSA-sanctioned tests at Daytona, in preparation for the twice-around-the-clock Florida endurance classic.

It is one of three new GT3 models to compete in the GT Daytona class this year, alongside the Lexus RC F GT3 and Mercedes-AMG GT3.
