Last year, Cody Loveland and LoveFab unveiled an Acura NSX that competed in the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb proving that you can teach an old car new tricks.
With more seat time under the team’s belt, LoveFab will be heading back to Pikes Peak with a more finely-tuned machine this year with support from Turbo by Garrett. Powered by a twin-turbocharged, dry-sumped LS1 engine, the LoveFab NSX will be driven by Cody Loveland once again and looks forward to besting his Unlimited Class second place finish from last year.
Plenty of changes have been made to the car during the off-season. Loveland tossed out the caged NSX tub for a full tube-chassis tub, cutting about 400 lbs from the car. The team’s goal is to have around 800 lb-ft of torque while tipping the scales at under 2,000 lbs. The swap to a V8 powerplant helped achieve those goals.
