Avid Honda fans have probably already seen mention of this car in Road & Track or over at GTChannel.com (and here), but here are a few more details and photos on the Spoon Signature NSX-R GT. The Spoon Signature NSX-R GT is set to be formally announced at the 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon in January. Spoon will be racing a specially prepared version of the NSX-R at the Macau Grand Prix this coming weekend. According to GTChannel.com, Spoon's race-prepped NSX-R features a 450hp naturally-aspirated 3.5L V6 capable of turning 9800rpm, all in a 950kg package.

Pricing of the roadgoing version is expected to come in at around $150,000. Spoon plans to manufacturer five of these in 2009.

"The kit contains all the Type-R parts for conversion, including Spoon-prepped engine and transmission, with Spoon aero kit.
