2 of the drivers who drove these cars in the 24 hours of Le Mans were GT Academy winners. This not only gives the car significance to the game, but it could likely be added because of this connection to the game. It is a nice LMP car that has a good chance of being added to the game.

Manufacturer - Honda
Production - 2010
Predecessor - Honda NSX Super GT
Class - grand touring race car
Body - coupe
Style Layout - front mid-engine, rear-wheel drive
Engine - 3,397 cc (207.3 cu in) V8
Power - 500 PS (370 kW; 490 bhp) or more,
Torque - 40.0kgm (289 lbs-ft; 392 Nm) or more
Transmision - Ricardo 6-speed sequential manual
Wheelbase - 2,700 mm (110 in)
Length - 4,675 mm (184.1 in)
Width - 2,000 mm (79 in)
Curb Weight - 1,100 kg (2,400 lb)

 

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 will be based on the cancelled 'New NSX' production vehicle. It is reported that although the Super GT normally requires racing vehicles to be based on production cars, the use of a production-ready car is also allowed.

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

 

For more information you can visit honda's official site on the car at http://world.honda.com/HSV-010_GT/

 

This would be a great addition to the game because there are tons of Super GT cars in the game, especially GT500 class cars.  Plus the fact that it is wicked cool looking Smiley Wink

Manufacturer: Chevrolet

Model: 1963 Corvette Grand Sport

Race Series: SCCA/FIA

Country: USA

 

Historical Significance: The granddaddy of racing Corvettes.  These cars were built in response to the success of Carroll Shelby's (small block) Cobras, which were cleaning up on America's racetracks at the time.  They had to be kept secret, to avoid scrutiny from higher ups in GM management and skirt an unofficial ban on factory racing activity then in place.  The primary goal of the program was aimed at extreme weight reduction, to get it down from the production model's 3100 lb curb weight.  Special aluminum frames, ultra-thin fiberglass bodies, and a myriad of other measures were taken to create lightweight racing specials that could equal or surpass the Cobras' power:weight superiority.  Power came from a 377c.i. small block, making 485 - 500 HP.  The Grand Sports proved fast enough to best the Cobras at the SCCA Nationals at Watkins Glen in 1963, and again at the Tourist Trophy race at Nassau.  When GM management learned of this, they ordered the program be stopped and the cars destroyed.  Fortunately, the cars were rescued and sold off into private hands, allowing the Grand Sports to continue racing. 

Heritage: Considered the ultimate racing incarnation of the Stingrays, these cars are highly coveted, and treasured by racing and Corvette fans.   It could be said that the Grand Sports are part of the reason that Shelby's ground pounding 427 Cobra was born, in response to their surprising speed and success at the track. 

Rarity/Desirability: Only 5 Grand Sports were built before the program was brought to a halt.  Fortunately all 5 original cars still exist, and are highly valued.  The Grand Sport is also a much copied car, with replicas built for racing and street duty by companies like Superformance and Mongoose Motorsports. 

Driving Fun Factor: These cars enjoy a very high power:weight ratio, superior to that of the small block/FIA Cobras, and rivaling that of the 427s.  But they had relatively narrow bias ply tires (eventually 9-1/2" wide wheels fitted), and somewhat limited braking power compared to newer racecars (1st racing 'Vettes to use disk brakes).  Another noted characteristic was air pressure buildup in the engine compartment, resulting in a tendency for front end lift at speed; the trademark louvers and vents in the hoods/bodywork were the results of efforts to counter this and improve cooling.  It should make for an interesting challenge, balancing handling and power characteristics to get the most speed out of the car.

RUF CTR 3 Clubsport

 

In April 2007, the CTR 3 was unveiled in Bahrain. While the first two CTR generations still had their engines in the rear, the new CTR 3 has a mid-engine design. However, one thing that the CTR 3 has in common with its two predecessors is that it is a pure driving machine. The CTR 3 is made to involve the pilot in the driving experience.

The mid-engine design provides exceptional balance and agile handling, while the longer wheelbase provides better driving stability at high speeds. The body of the CTR 3 is a completely new development which is not based on any existing mid-engine concept. It is aerodynamically designed for high speed. Galvanized steel is used for the front structure and the passenger compartment. The engine and transmission are fixed in a space frame and modular tubular frame construction. The passenger compartment is protected by the latest version of the famous RUF Integrated Roll Cage which is integrated into the A pillar and tube frame. The doors, with integrated side impact protection beams, and the front hood are made of aluminium. The body-shell is made of Kevlar-carbon composite.

The concept of this classic sports car was maturing in Alois Ruf's head for a long time. Together with his design and engineering team he now realized this idea. RUF has 30 years of experience with turbocharged boxer engines. The CTR 3's twin-turbocharged 3.8 litre flat-six cylinder engine has an output of 750 HP at 7,100 rpm. The maximum torque is 708 ft/lbs at 4,000 rpm. This engine design combines a compact construction with high performance. Each turbocharger is provided with an intercooler which is placed in front of each rear wheel.

The sequential shift 6-speed transmission in the CTR 3 is a new design and is mounted transversely. It can manage torque up to 855 ft/lbs. A shift indicator on the dashboard shows the gear in use. A limited slip differential is provided to maximize performance. The sport suspension is designed for high-level driving dynamics and safety. The front axles use MacPherson struts and an anti-roll bar. The rear axles utilize motorsport technology with horizontal coilover shock absorbers fixed over pushrods connected to the wheel carriers.

The brake system is designed to match the high engine and suspension performance. Both front and rear axles utilize 6-piston fixed light alloy calipers and ventilated, cross drilled ceramic composite disc brakes. Each brake disc is 380 mm in diameter. A specially designed Bosch anti-lock braking system comes as standard.

The CTR 3 rolls on forged aluminium wheels with center lock. At the front 255/35 ZR 19'' tires are mounted on 8.5'' x 19'' wheels, while at the rear 335/30 ZR 20'' tires are mounted on 12.5'' x 20'' wheels.

The interior can be designed to the customer's taste, reaching from a functional lightweight finish to a sports-luxury finish with leather and Alcantara. The aluminium gearshift lever for the sequential shift transmission is a central unit to the interior. In addition, the 260 mph speedometer shows the driver that the CTR 3 is meant for high performance.

The lightweight construction allows for an empty weight (according to DIN) of 3,086 lbs. The result is a power-to-weight ratio of only 4.4 lbs per HP.

The CTR 3's performance is incredible. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes only 3.2 seconds, and its maximum speed is 380 km/h (236 mph).
