    Default New Honda NSX to beat the Nissan GT-R on the 'Ring?

    Honda boss Takeo Fukui says the new NSX should be faster then the GT-R, no matter what. That's what he said to his research and development team.
    The NSX will get e 5.5 litre V10 which will go up to 9000 RPM!
    It will have around 550bhp and 570 Nm. This front-engined monster will have a 8 speed gearbox. How the power get's on the road is still unknown.
    Some say the NSX does laps of 7:37 on the 'Ring already, without even being finished! I'm sure they'll get off another 9 seconds, it's not that much on 21,2 kilometres.





    I like it

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    That is beast. But it doesn't seem like an NSX anymore. It looks like that LF-something.

    Things change!
    Has a bit of the looks of the Lexus LF-A indeed.

    Yea but you can see the shape of the car. It has stepped away from the style we know the NSX for. I think it was about time.

    I don't think its time. The change from the Skyline to the GTR is no where near as drastic. I think they should have just kept the rear engine layout with the NSX and dropped the V10 in the back.

    Are you absolutely sure that's the new NSX and not the Lexus LF-A? Especially with those IS-F-ish tailpipes...

    holy cow. i think this is the first V layout engine for a Japanese Production Car iirc. a V10! That's a first.

    Japanese Rivalry revisited! Skyline vs Supra vs NSX.
    new Supra flops, the FT-HS hybird! blah! don't like it.

    Yes. The LF-A also drive around uncovered already

    Or could this be the Toyota FT-HS? Just clutching at straws really... I really don't want the NSX to be front engined...

    I think it looks like the LF-A too, and by the sounds of things their goal for the new NSX is just to beat the GT-R. Doesn't sound good to be honest, i prefer the normal NSX.

    looks more like a CRX than an NSX, if they were to revive a name for a car that looks like that, surely CRX would be more fitting...

    Very true. What happened to the good ol' rough, mean Godzilla? Now it's a luxury car that does 190mph. What happened to the mean, rally car, bad boy Evo VI? Now it's luxurious and has just about every gadget in it possible, taking the skill out of driving it. And now the NSX, no longer a beautiful looking and sounding japanese supercar, but the same as every other sports car out there these days.

    Although, it's not just Japanese cars. Look at the mean, rough, growling E30 M3, and then look at the elegant, sleek E92 M3. Look at the mean, rumbling, roaring Sierra RS500 Cosworth, and then look at the Focus ST3. Look at the brilliant, loud Peugeot 205 GTI, and then look at the 207 GTI. I could go on and on.

    Can't be bothered to hand out abuse . I'm taking that as a joke anyway.
