Honda announced the company want a 10 cylinders engine for its future NSX : "This sort of discussion was made between the American Honda people and r&d people, and some people were questioning whether it’s really necessary to have a V-10," Kondo says. "But sports is a special category. We said if we’re going to do it, we’re going to go to the extreme," says Executive Vice President Koichi Kondo.
But better performance also means higher prices: the NSX will cost more than the Gt-R that is powered by a turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6.
The company hopes to sell 1,000 units a year of the NSX in the United States, where Honda plans to launch the sports car first, sometime in 2011.
