Probably the last major NSX tuner varient...this car takes the NSX to the next level in terms of design. There are no specs on this car yet but the roof scoop and aggressive body kit and spoiler hint at major potential.
Honda HSV-010 - NSX Successor

Out of the ashes of the NSX sprints the Honda HSV-010. The new NSX is
armed with a 3.4L V-8 engine with 496 hp and 289 lbs of torque. This is in
contrast to the reported V-10 that was said to be planned for the
Slated for a 2010 arrival in Super GT the HSV-010 will be entered into the
GT500 class. Perhaps success here will lead Honda to bring the car back
into production form.

"Honda Music" is back!
This is Honda HSV-010 GT, the successor of NSX-GT. Due to too strong a
downforce, the top speed is slightly lower than the rivals such as Nissan
GT-R, but it's an ultimate cornering machine ever! And the Exhaust sound is even better than NSX-GT. I
miss the old NSX, but now HSV is becoming my new favorite Honda.

Honda Tests NSX-GT FR Hybrid
What a surprise... Nobody, and even none of the auto media could see this
coming. At a regular "Super GT Test Day" held at TwinRing Motegi on
October 2010, Honda NSX-GT suddenly showed up with no official
announcement. Honda already has HSV for Super GT. Why now NSX-GT?
The vehicle has the looking of NSX-GT, but what lies under the body kit is
a "FR" vehicle. The exact same car was previously spotted just once on
2007 when it was announced that Super GT regulation would change from 2009
and only "3.4L FR" race cars will be allowed. NSX-GT being a "3.5L
mid-ship", it was apparent that the new regulation was designed to shut out
NSX-GT from Super GT. Honda needed to make a tough decision at that time
whether to make a FR version of NSX-GT, or stop racing. The car spotted on
2007 was a result of Honda's ultimate struggle - its hood awkwardly
stretched to store engine in front, sticking Exhaust pipes from the side instead of rear, and
roof-top air intake became useless and had scaled down.
Eventually, Honda managed to survive in racing in Super GT by developing a
new 3.4L FR vehicle, HSV-010 GT on 2010. And what had happened to that "FR
NSX-GT"? There was no doubt of it being scrapped and gone forever, after
all it became a useless prototype race car. The set-up probably did not go
well, and above all, who would like to see a FR NSX?
[NSX-GT with KERS]
But it turned out that "FR NSX-GT" was still alive, secretly stored inside
the garage of Honda R&D team for 3 years. This time, it was chosen for the
vehicle to officially test KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems) which
might be used for 2012 Super GT or later. To reduce development cost of
KERS, Honda volunteered to provide the car and gather data for all race
entrants, and Lexus and Nissan approved it. "FR NSX-GT" was an ideal test
car for all 3 car makers. The car was basically designed to race in Super
GT, but Honda did not develop it till the end and had never used in races,
thus lack of racing data. This was fair deal for Lexus and Nissan because
Honda testing KERS will not bring advantage to HSV.
So many people and media asked the GT Association (management organization
of Super GT) the specification of this "NSX-GT Hybrid", and later an
official announcement was made.
KERS provided for testing purpose for Super GT vehicle is manufactured by
Zytek, the same KERS supplier for F1. It can be used to Boost the car for maximum of 20 seconds to
overtake others, and can be fully recharged after 1 single lap. It is 40kw
strong and is powerful enough to drive cars solely on electric motor on
places such as pit lanes. The KERS itself weigh 50kg.
According to GT Association, the very first test drive of NSX-GT Hybrid was
done a month ago, and this was the first time to seriously test its
potential on race tracks. Test driver of "NSX-GT Hybrid" was Katsutomo
Kaneishi who was a Honda test driver in days of NSX-GT, and currently a
director of Real Racing Team with KEIHIN HSV-010. His best lap of the day
was 1.49"468 at TwinRing Motegi, only 4.453 seconds slower than the fastest
lap of the day by Lexus ENEOS SC430.
There should be tons of more tests coming, but so far it seems possible
KERS might be used at Super GT in the near future.
