Meyer Shank Racing has released its first images of the dramatic new livery for the No. 86 AutoNation Acura NSX GT3.
The No. 86 AutoNation Acura NSX will be driven by full season drivers, Mario Farnbacher and Matt McMurry. They will be joined by Japanese driver, Shinya Michimi for the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup rounds and French pilot, Jules Gounon for the Rolex 24 At Daytona.

“We’re really excited to be partnered with AutoNation again for the 2020 season,” said Mike Shank. “What this company does with its DRV PNK campaign is really important to us and having a livery that stands out like this is an awesome way to raise awareness about what AutoNation is doing to help in the fight against breast cancer. We’ve got some great momentum from our GTD championship last season, and have two champions as our full-time drivers this year so we are eager to get 2020 going.”
The all new livery will make its debut next week at the Roar Before the 24 (January 3-5) the first official test before the Rolex 24 at Daytona at the end of the month (January 22-26).
