The Honda NSX-R Prototype LM Race Car is a race car based on the Honda NSX-R Prototype LM Road Car, a road car produced by Honda. It first appears in Gran Turismo Concept, and has appeared in every main game since, with the exception of Gran Turismo Sport.

In-game descriptionEdit

"A Gran Turismo original, aimed to be the ultimate NSX."

Without question, the pinnacle of Japanese mid-engine sports cars is the Honda NSX-R. This high-speed version, the NSX-R Prototype LM, begins life as a standard Type R, but uses the addition of a lighter body and wider tires, along with a massive power upgrade for good measure.

The original NSX Type R made its debut in 1992 and underwent many major refinements prior to its second-generation release in 2002. The new model was lavished with numerous aluminum and carbon fiber parts, along with major renovations to the drivetrain. Despite these additions, it still felt like something was missing; the enhancements to the engine were limited to just a bit of fine-tuning.

The hearty 3.2-liter DOHC V6 with i-VTEC has seen its bore increased to yield an impressive 493 BHP at an incredibly lofty 10,000 rpm. The engine has been re-positioned to a longitudinal layout and the gearbox has been installed up front to mirror the setup found on the Japan Grand Touring Car-spec NSX. The driveshaft is connected to the rear tires through the oil pan underneath the engine.

With the new level of horsepower and a high degree of handling capability, this car is ready to take on any of the world's great racing circuits. Rather than stripping the interior, this NSX features luxurious leather-clad seats and wood trim in a nod to its street-legal status.

Although this NSX Type-R LM remains only a dream, in the world of Gran Turismo the possibilities are endless.

  • The livery of this car is based on the Honda NSX-R GT1 Turbo '95, a car only appeared in the NTSC-J version of the original Gran Turismo.
  • Early versions of GT6 had a bug where the car's side number box does not appear. This was quietly fixed in Update 1.17.
  • An Acura branded version of the car can be found on the GT Concept Tokyo-Geneva disc, which may suggest there were plans for a North American release of GT Concept.
