Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

It will compete in the FIA GT3 series, if the name didn't give that away already.

The NSX GT3 is powered by a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6.

It lacks the hybrid system of its road-car brethren.

The nine-speed transmission has also been replaced with a six-speed sequential unit.

It still looks good at nighttime, but you lose many of the interesting details when the light disappears.
