EH9 Daddy Geschrieben 9. Dezember 2006 Teilen Geschrieben 9. Dezember 2006 Acura V10 engine / sports car. Well, as almost every month / week, “Bestcar” has another look at a possible Acura sports coupe, and some talking about the upcoming Honda V10. Although announced as a “Top Secret” scoop, as always I wouldn’t really put to much emphasis on the accuracy of this information. They also claim though to have had an interview with somebody that has seen a real concept. Here is in short what they say though: * It will arrive in ’08, together with the introduction of the Acura brand in Japan. * Honda will give a clear design clue in Detroit in the Acura PR event (that apparently that man has seen). * V10 powerplant will be a 4.5L, smaller than current BMW’s M5 and the upcoming Lexus V10. They also say that it would have a V angle of 95º, similar to F1 engines, and that for that reason the body will have to be wider. It should reach around 120PS/L with max output of 550Hp. Power is said to come to the wheels through a Semi-AT transmission. * Platform is said to be a newly developed FR+SH-AWD setup, together with a new suspension design, and inheriting an all aluminium body construction from past-gen NSX. * Style is said to be more in the line of British GT’s than Italian Ferraris. According to the source, he can’t really find similarities with other cars on the road, although he says that you could say it’s a Honda (Acura), but that you couldn’t think of it as a NSX successor. * Price would be in line with past-gen NSX (priced around 10 – 12 Million yen), which would be considerably cheaper than Lexus targeted price of 15-20 MYen for their GT-car. Please do not translate those figures into dollars at today’s rates. Car prices in Japan have remained unchanged for really long time despite Yen recent depreciation. For sure overseas market’s prices would be more expensive than just translating the currencies.
