"Honda Music" is back!
This is Honda HSV-010 GT, the successor of NSX-GT. Due to too strong a downforce, the top speed is slightly lower than the rivals such as Nissan GT-R, but it's an ultimate cornering machine ever! And the exhaust sound is even better than NSX-GT. I miss the old NSX, but now HSV is becoming my new favorite Honda.
