MUGEN NSX RR
Thought the NSX was dead and buried? Think again...
The NSX may be gone but it is clearly not forgotten over at Honda. The Japanese carmaker was still happy to tap into the car’s legendary status for the ’09 Tokyo Auto Salon to create its star car.
The Mugen NSX RR is officially a one-off show car to commemorate the long-lived supercar, and it features a combination of carbon fibre and aluminium body panels. The car has been stretched to 177.95 inches and widened by 5.5 inches and the 3.0-litre V6 has been ditched in favour of a supercharged 2.4-litre V6.
It is fitted with a revised six-speed manual gearbox and power is reportedly up to 380bhp. The bad News is that at present the car will not go into production although rumour has it that Mugen is considering acquiring some low mileage NSXs and converting them.
