Most cars made for Gran Turismo's Vision GT series are wild fantasy machines, but Honda took a different approach for its car. The Honda Sports Vision GT made its official debut today, and it's basically a little brother for the NSX. It only lives in the video-game world now, but we want to see it in real life.
This little mid-engine car is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 404 hp at 7500 rpm and is paired to an eight-speed dual clutch. It weighs a little under 2000 lbs too, thanks to lots of (virtual) carbon fiber.
Honda held a company-wide design contest for the Vision GT model, with its Los Angeles studio penning the winner. In profile, it looks a lot like the NSX with its sharp rear intakes, and at the back, we see shades of the Civic Si coupe. With further input from Honda designers and engineers in Japan, the LA studio made a 1:4 scale model of the Sports Vision GT, while a full-scale mockup was created for wind-tunnel testing.
Honda hasn't announced any plans to put something like this into production, but we sincerely hope it does. We're always game for more mid-engine sports cars, and the Sports Vision GT would make a hell of a companion for the NSX.
