Honda HSC - the future NSX

Honda HSC (Honda Sports Concept) is widely seen as the forerunner of the second generation NSX. The concept car shown in Tokyo Motor Show combines the long-slung profile of the current NSX with muscular shoulders and a modernized tail. Technology-wise, it is less innovative than the current car. Aluminum chassis and part aluminum, part composite body continues the serve Honda's flagship sports car. The engine remains to be a small-capacity V6, capable of delivering in excess of 300hp, compare with the current car's 290hp. However, Honda did not reveal any more details of the engine. Transmission is a paddle-shift semi-automatic.

Externally, the concept car is much wider and shorter than the NSX, although it has longer wheelbase. Its styling differs very much from European sports cars, injecting fresh air to the sports car world. Let's hope Honda put it into production as soon as possible.




Very nice car indeed! looks superb too!

good!

looks like the ones which i copied from the site are not workin' but the ones on my own image place on the net are

i think the back looks a little boxy too and it reminds me of a Ferarri for some reason even though i did read some where that the rear of the NSX was inspired by the Ferarri. not this model but the previous models.

I think it looks pretty nice. Too bad nothing has changed much performance wise. I think, along with every other car enthusiast out there that Honda should venture into the V8 field. With their ingenuity they can probaly craft an incredible V8, capable at least of 400hp. Too bad, they are more concerned with feul efficency, and reliablity.

Imagine this body with a V8.

I like some concepts but somtimes you look at some concept car from a previously beautiful looking model and you have to say to yourself "what the was they thinking, looks like a two year olds molding using play dough"

concepts are made to look shocking some do for the wrong reasons
