    Now buckle up and listen to and watch this testing at Suzuka. I'm sure there's a tube sock somewhere in your vicinity.

    On October 23, 2009, Honda officially announced the end of the mid-engine NSX Super GT's participation in Super GT racing due to new Super GT regulations that allowed the use of only front engine rear drive cars. On November 15, 2009, Honda announced that, despite withdrawing the NSX from Super GT competition, it would campaign a car for the 2010 season. Honda revealed that the car it would be based on the canceled NSX production vehicle. Honda's decision to campaign a non-production vehicle required it to obtain special permission from Super GT to be exempt from the production homologation requirements for the series.[2]

    On December 22, 2009, Honda announced the HSV-010 GT as the successor to the NSX Super GT in the Super GT series. The vehicle is not based on any production vehicle that is made available to purchase by the general public.

    The Honda HSV-010 GT is a front mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout to comply with Super GT regulations. The engine is a 3.4 L V8 that produces over 500 bhp and is mated to a Ricardo gearbox.

    Thanks to a stripped-down interior and bountiful use of carbon fiber, the HSV-010 weighs just 2,424 lbs.

    The car will debut on May 20-21st during the season opener, with four cars expected to compete.

    I'm headed to Walmart right now for a three-pack. Damn that car is sweet. This is what happens when you make engineers design chick cars all day long.

    I'm sitting here wondering if that could fit in my rectum somehow.

    No, not really.

    But maybe.
