Although Honda was able to find a comfortable niche for its mid-engined sports car via its luxury division, the thought of offering the NSX-R – which eschewed luxuries like sound deadening and a spare tire in the name of speed – didn’t jive with the Acura brand.; While enthusiasts the world over could play with the NSX-R, we were ‘remiss’ to have only the NSX-T (which added weight) until 2005.
From what Japan Performance Car News reports, Spoon plans on adding all the requisite NSX-R parts, including a re-tuned suspension, carbon fiber hood and spoiler, underbody trays, larger brake parts, and significant engine tuning.
We think it’s a sweet idea – but wonder if it’ll be a sweet deal.; Japanese-market parts aren’t usually cheap, and the conversion work required to bring a car into ‘R’-spec is exhausting.
