Unlike the NSX-R it replaces, which ran a V6, the new HSV-010 GT runs a grossly oversquare V-8 engine.

The press release is one of the shortest ever. It reads: Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today introduced the HSV-010 GT, which will compete in the GT500 class of the 2010 Super GT Series.” Accompanied by 20 stunning images, and one set of alluring specifications, what the press release didn’t say was, “this is the NSX replacement we shelved due to the GFC and now that the economy is looking better, we’re gonna race it and see how we go at drumming up interest.” With a weight of just 1100 kg, the HSV is not a V10 as rumoured, but a short-stroke (93.0 x 62.5mm) 3.4 litre V8 producing 500 horsepower. The roadcar is not expected any time soon, but Honda should consider global interest suitably stimulated, cos it's a little ripper.

The HSV stands for Honda Sports Velocity and it’s the vehicle which wou;d havew graced the Honda stand at the Tokyo Motor Show last year has the Global Financial Crisis not descended upon us.

Unlike the NSX-R it replaces, which ran a V6, the new HSV-010 GT runs a grossly oversquare V-8 engine.

We’re almost certain to see the car raced for some time before it is likely to grace showroom floors, so you can start saving your pennies now.

I kind of wish it had a V10 but still a VERY cool car!
