Honda NSX-R GTHonda has introduced a very limited and special version of the NSX-R called the NSX-R GT. The NSX-R isn't available in the US. It's basically a more sporty NSX. It has improved aerodynamics, better handling, more optimized engine for better response, larger wheels and brakes with wider tires, etc. Essentially like the Integra TypeR was to the regular Integra, or the Civic TypeR to the Civic.
The NSX-R GT further enhances the NSX-R, mostly on visuals. It has more exaggerated body parts with more air flow. All body panels are made from carbon fiber, for minimal weight and lots of strength and rigidity. It even has a F1 type air intake above the roof in the rear. Plus, it has a larger exhaust.
It's a shame that the NSX-R GT has basically the same exact performance as the NSX-R. Which is no slouch by any means. It has a 3.2L V6 making 280 hp. Recall that the US NSX makes 290 hp, which is more than the Japanese NSX-R. But I belive that's just the manufacturer's ratings to avoid having to raise the price of the car excessively. I think there are laws there that force car manufacturers to increase their prices if they exceed 276 hp. So in reality, I bet it makes more than 280 hp, but who knows.
Still, for such a hefty price, 357,700 Euros ($476,000), it's just not worth it. Even though it's very exclusive, with only 5 versions to be released. Shoot, I could buy 5 NSXs at that price and I'd still be pretty exclusive. Plus I'd have 5 times the power.
