A year ago Honda officially announced the introduction of the HSV-010 GT race car, the company’s successor to the NSX in the Japanese Super GT Series. A purpose-built race car with a 500-hp 3.4-liter V8 engine, sadly, no production car will ever be derived from the HSV-010. That new is all the more disappointing when you see just how stunning a creation the car is.
A total of four teams competed with Honda’s new race car in the Super GT series, with the No. 18 Weider Racing Team car (above) taking the pole in its first two races and topping the podium in only its second race.
