Ghost Of Nsx Running In Jgtc?

The Honda HSV-010 will Represent the Honda brand in JGTC GT500 competition in 2010. The car is not the resurrection of the NSX, but a way for Honda to compete in the Super GT Series. The series' sanctioning body, the Japan Automobile Federation, recently revised the rules, stating that competing cars are not required to be production cars to line up on the grid, just "production feasible." Does this water down Super GT? Right now it can be written off as a sign of the financial times, and we should be happy to see any vehicle line up to race. But if Super GT becomes a bunch of prototypes carving it up, the series will lose its magic. The big draw is seeing what cars based on a model enthusiasts can buy are capable of when properly modified and driven on the ragged edge.

The HSV-010 is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.4-liter V-8 and output is class-limited to 500 hp. It will be interesting to see how competitive this whip will be against the likes of Nissan's GT-R, Toyota's Soarer (SC430) as well as Lamborghinis and Aston Martins. It will also be interesting to see if any aspect of the HSV-010 trickles down into a future Honda production car.
