Honda Racing finally puts NSX out to pasture as SuperGT tweaks regs
Based on the roadgoing supercar, the SuperGT-spec NSX-GT featured a heavily modified chassis that swapped the stock transverse V6 for a 500-horsepower competition-spec engine tuned by Mugen and mounted longitudinally. The car's been driven to three drivers' titles and three teams' championships in the Japanese touring car series.
No word yet on what, if anything, will succeed the NSX – or the Toyota MR-S for that matter – but Japanese automakers dropping out of motorsports like so many flies, we won't be holding our breath.
