Spoon Sports To Transform NSX Into U.S. Spec NSX-R

Written by tonks on August 21, 2008

Honda NSX-RSpoon Sports is a motorsport partner with Honda and has been for quite some time. They will be producing a U.S. specifications NSX and transforming it into the NSX-R’s. The new modifications include larger anti-roll bars, stiffer shocks and springs, forged 17” alloy wheels, slotted brake rotors, shorter final-drive gear ratio, and a rear diffuser.

Part of the NSX-R’s appeal was a product of Honda’s desire to keep weight in check, so in order to get as close to the JDM version’s 2,800-pound curb weight, Spoon will replace the hood, rear spoiler and seats with carbon fiber pieces, fit a smaller battery, manually-adjustable mirrors, thinner rear window glass, lightweight carpets and will rip out all of the sound deadening material.

Spoon hasn’t released details on how much the conversion will cost or when it will begin taking orders, but is we are lucky we might get to see the first models launched in 2010.
