Honda Is Back To Its Roots Sports Car?

At a press conference in early February, CEO shocked Honda Takanobu Ito, the world's media, as he casually revealed plans to launch a production version of the car detuned V8 Racing HSV- 010. Of course, he was referring to a variant of the highway project NSX successor, which was closed several years ago.

As we have seen, the next NSX (which should be powered by a 400-plus hp V-8) features the company's heavily revised the plan to pump three sports cars in the coming years.

Just over six weeks ago, a killer earthquake and tsunami threatened to cancel this turnaround Honda, and rob us of some of the most interesting news to come out in Japan by Nissan GT-R three years ago.

But a reliable source close to Honda says that although these plans were postponed as the company sorts its parts supply problems, they are not dead in the water. In recent weeks we have heard that Honda is working on a high-performance coupe powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 plug-in hybrid, a concept that Ito himself briefly mentioned.

The reincarnation of the Acura RSX, the car you see here in the representation of an artist, is also on the agenda in the short term. According to our sources, the next-gen RSX inherit a version of the recent initiative of the ninth generation of the Civic Si, 201 hp i-VTEC engine of 2.4 liters of gas with 6-speed manual gearbox and LSD web cylindrical. Featuring a specially tuned sport suspension, the new RSX also use an interior inspired by the current Civic Type R and an outer wedge-shaped, strong.

Further down the line, the Honda is also said to be the development of sport "affordable" segment C coupe. Led by a strong demand for Honda's North American dealers, this coupe to develop this market in mind and included in the Accord system.

Another concept that we have covered before and is awaiting the results of Honda calls "R-rated executive session" is the successor to the Beat. Beat The original was a two-door convertible, mini-car in central 660cc engine that could rev to 8500 rpm, and the next generation promises to be a new interpretation of this concept with a 1.3 to 1.5 engine liters of gasoline. If built, do not expect the strike to come to the U.S. We have also heard rumors of a hot CR-Z get a 190 hp 2.0-liter petrol unit, but all we have at this time, rumors.
