Honda NSX-R GTThe Honda NSX-R GT is a homologation special set to be produced in very small numbers, only five are schedule to be built. Production is set to begin in August of 2005. Country of origin : Japan References
The design and materials used on the NSX was revolutionary and introduced many industry 'firsts' for the production car market. It was the first production car to use titanium connecting rods, six in total. The body and chassis was comprised of aluminum, weighing just over 460 pounds, much less than steel but with equal strength.
The 3-liter DOHC V-6 engine was mounted mid-ship and matted to a five-speed manual gearbox. With 270 horsepower and 210 foot-pounds of torque, zero-to-sixty was accomplished in under six seconds.
For use in the Super GT, formerly the All Japan GTC and JGTC, the Honda NSX GT has been highly modified with chassis development by Dome, engine development by Mugen, for Honda.
Wild exterior colors having been offered such as the controversial love-or-hate Imola Orange Pearl with yellow interior. These colors are not only making a statement, they scream it. With limited numbers of these radical colors being chosen, it may make them more valuable in the future.
