Cool Honda HSV-010 GT w/ 3.4L V8 [formerly Acura ASCC]...



"The Super GT version of the Acura Sports would carry the road carís silhouette but underneath it would be totally different, with an all-new carbonfibre chassis and swapping the road carís 5.0-litre V10 Ė good for 500bhp plus Ė for a race-bred 3.4-litre V8 to meet the new Super GT regs.

Those regs would also see the road carís high-performance, rear-biased Super Handling 4WD system exchanged for a simpler, more robust rear drive layout, again to meet Super GT regs.

Honda will build a limited run of race cars to meet the requirements of the Super GT teams and the 3.4-litre V8 will come across from Japanís Formula Nippon single-seater series.

Itís a 90-degree V8 with 3400cc capacity, rev-limited to 10,300rpm and good for 600bhp plus. For Super GT duty, the engine will have to be significantly reworked for a more endurance spec. Super GT races are longer and harder than Formula Nippon and each engine also has to last for four races."

"Itís here at lastÖ sort of. Above is a lone photo of the replacement to the Honda/Acura NSX Ė 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 Japanís 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, whatís even more impressive is whatís under the hood Ė 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. "

Video of them running it around the Suzuka track. It sounds beautiful.

This thing isn't nearly as ugly as their road cars, why can't they make the rest of their cars this good looking?

I drive something with more gears than you, get over it.
