Car-Mode Magazine: Next NSX-R to feature 500ps turbo V8
 Date: December 15, 2004 09:26
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Car-Mode
 Credibility Rating: 6


The latest issue of Car-Mode (Japanese Magazine) claims to have a scoop on the next NSX-R, predicting that it will feature a turbocharged V8 good for 500ps, which matches the predicted output of the upcoming Skyline GT-R and surpasses Toyota's upcoming GT supercar by 50ps.

While turbochargers haven't been used by Honda very frequently in the past, for the past 18 months or so there have been lots of whispers surrounding the secret development of turbo Hondas.
