Report: Acura NSX Replacement Arrives to Run in Japan's Super GT Series


It's here at last… sort of. Above is a lone photo of the replacement to the Honda/Acura NSX – at least in race car trim. Called the HSV-10 GT, or Velocity Sports Honda, this track only exotic is built to run in the GT500 class of Japan's Super GT series. As cars in that class are limited to around 500-hp, we can safely assume the HSV-10 GT makes exactly that.

With a full carbon fiber body, what's even more impressive is what's under the hood – a 3.4-liter V8 engine that no doubt revvs to an impressively high (even for Honda) rpm range to get all 500 ponies. (Honda has yet to release official specs though.)

Underpinning this impressive creation is reported to be the very same chassis that Honda was working on for several years to replace the NSX but which has now been rumored canceled.

A light weight body and 500-hp 3.4L V8, only for the track? Please Honda, nobody likes a tease.

500HP from a 3.4 liter? That's 147 HP a liter! My G1 makes 60HP a liter! And the Type II makes 72!
That must be some engine!

These engines never cease to amaze. My vote is to go away from the Lotus look though and do a more throwback design. I love old skool!
