aravind I can't help but think that the "NSX-GT FR Hybrid" in the 2nd of the 3 videos that cfrp posted looks more true to the original NSX except that the engine on this one appears to be front-mounted (is it not, from the looks of it? I could be wrong).

Even so, I like the looks of the "NSX-GT FR Hybrid" better than the latest rolling iterations being tested and widely exhibited! I wish the production NSX looked like this one!

Thoughts, anyone?

|\|SX Many things to say about both on paper, can't wait to see what they will actually do on the track.

cfrp Don't think that little 3 cylinder motor is going to keep up with a twin turbo v6.

this is not true at all. If Hybrid wants to be taken seriously as an alternative power we can't give consolation prizes for participating and prefacing the contests by saying well one is a hybrid so be nice!

NOPE, they need to stand on their own 4 wheels against traditional petrol power otherwise whats the point in alternative fuel?

|\|SX From what i read, it just has an all electric range of under 40 miles. The rest of the time it's powered by a 3 cylinder hybrid engine setup. Not fully electric but still practical, 100% electric wouldn't be as practical for most.

cfrp Isn't the BMW i8 full electric?

This is true.
R8 is IMO a step above but with the NSX's lighter weight and V6TT setup it could be close to the R8, We'll just have to wait and see.

I'm sure once the Mercedes apron as been severed on the F1 end; Honda maybe a natural choice for McLaren's street cars

Just a thought
its possible, but I'm going to doubt it. Honda is not going to produce an engine just for McLaren unless they have something to use it in. Now that could be shared between the NSX and McLaren but I'm prety sure Mac typically goes with a flat plane set up, while the new NSX is going to be a cross plane. Mac isnt exactly helpless when it comes to building engines, the MP has a McLaren built engine and they own the rights to Walkinshaw racing and all their engine dev work.

I believe the R8 went V10 a few years ago, the V10 comes from a Lamborghini. Still rather get a lamborghini over the V10 R8.
