2005 Honda NSX-R GT

Built as the world’s newest homologation special, the Honda NSX-R GT is a celebration of everything NSX. About the only thing this car is missing the tow hook, otherwise it could be a contender for the Japan Touring Car Championship (JTCC).

Changes to the car include multiple carbon fibre pieces, including a dramatic front air dam and a massive rear scoop that extends way beyond the roof. For power, Honda use the same 3.2 liter unit found in the production NSX-R.

Only five examples of this supercar are set to be made for the public and all were availble to the first people to fax an order to the Honda CS Sales division. No doubt all are spoken for now. Production starts in August of 2005.
