This product appears to be a smaller version of the supercar-slaying NSX with a few S660 styling cues thrown in for good measure. The mystery sports car was supposedly created in Honda’s American design studio.

The product in question could be something that fills the gulf between the 63-hp S660 and the monstrous NSX, which has a twin-turbo V6, three electric motors and 550 horses. Perhaps this car is a spiritual successor to the S2000 with much wilder bodywork.
