A concept NSX Mugen RR is appearing at the Tokyo Auto Salon. The car draws inspiration from the production 2010 NSX which was recently canceled.
The Tokyo Auto Salon sees the public revelation of the Honda NSX Mugen RR Concept. The concept has been inspired by the Honda NSX sports car which was recently put on production hold by Honda. It features a new hood with new air vents, new side sills, a rear boot spoiler, an air vent at the back of the roof, a new rear apron with integrated exhaust system and air diffuser, and a new front lip spoiler.
Last month Honda announced that it had cancelled the 2010 NSX project amid cuts in funding for projects seen as too costly during these trying times in the auto industry.
From the see-through technical cutaways published the NSX was shown to have a naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V10 engine. It was expected to produce in excess of 500hp (378kW) and Honda bosses had demanded that it be faster than the Nissan GT-R.
No further details are yet available on the NSX Mugen RR Concept.
