Avid Honda fans have probably already seen mention of this car in Road & Track or over at GTChannel.com (and a=1570" target="_blank">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. Total potential quantities are unknown but are thought to be limited to around 20 to 25. Opak Racing (based in Northern California) will also offer kits to convert existing NSXs to Type-R specs. "The kit contains all the Type-R parts for conversion, including Spoon-prepped engine and transmission, with Spoon aero kit.
