SEMA 2017: Honda NSX Dream Project is a GT3-inspired road car

US-based NSX specialist ScienceofSpeed has built a 455kW/687Nm road-going NSX

Though Honda (or Acura, in the US) recently revealed a GT3 version of its NSX supercar, it wasn’t something you could drive up your favourite mountain road.

But this is. It’s the Honda NSX Dream Project.

Built by US-based NSX tuner ScienceofSpeed, the Dream Project looks like a GT3 car thanks to its new aero kit, plus it has a lower suspension kit and more power. Oh, and you can drive it on the road.

Underneath, a custom suspension lowering kit was installed which brings the body down by a little more than an inch. It also features an iLIFT suspension sensor which can lift the NSX up by two inches at the front to avoid scraping on driveways or bumps.

The gloss black roof is a homage to the first generation of the NSX.

On the dash, a multi-function display built by GaugeART can be found.

ScienceofSpeed general manager Chris Willson says the Dream Project is the ultimate second generation NSX, something his company has had a long time to perfect.
