@Driveitlikeyoustoleit @bigmac69 Is that just more speculation, or has it been confirmed.. ? I hope you're right, but I'm not holding my breath..

Have faith! With Tetsuya Tada at the helm, I'm sure it will turn out fine. He does seem like a bit of a gear head himself, and won't want to be 'that guy' who ruined Supra as was the fate of MR2 and Celica. No BS All-alloy I-6 turbo! Do eeet! =D

@Amin_nfs Beating the Zonda R, Possibly. But then the Zonda R is a racetrack-specific car and cannot be road registered (to the best of my knowledge) so not really a fair comparison. With that said, if the P1 still outruns the Zonda R it will be even more impressive. The 12C was built to beat the Ferrari 458 for less cash, and does. The Huayra is in a different league entirely -> 388hp/ton vs 512hp/ton... (supercar vs hypercar?)

Stunning? absolutely. But, will it outperform the Pagani Huyara?? Will be a close battle I think, though you would expect the edge to be in the McLaren's favour... Time wil tell.

@ColtReid This is all very true, however the 3SG and 2JZ, as good as they are, are weapons of the old guard. Would love to see them use an all-alloy conventional straight 4 along the lines of the 2ZZ-GE (but with 2.0 displacement) with ~11-12:1 compression and dual VVTL-I with high lift secondaries and direct injection. The largest car manufacturer in the world shouldn't have to steal someone else's engine to power the revival of one of their most famous ever cars. 86 should be all Toyota's doing.

And yea, All for KERS and saving the planet or whatever, but bring the technology in through the heavy Lexus cruisers first.
Im repeating what a few have said already, but why not offer the best of both worlds? In addition to the cheaper base model, bring in a lighter, higher specd NA version (~230ps) for the purists and a supercharged version for something a little more beefy. The 2.0L NA SXE10 Altezza offers 210ps (~5ps more) from an engine developed well over a decade ago, one would expect them to at least surpass this. I realise emissions standards aren't helping here, but still.As for turbos, Not a big fan of the complexity required for the boxer engine in this instance...
Haha this is terrifically nuts! Can't imagine you'd see much of the road in front of you, or go round corners particularly well, but has definately got cool factor. Coolest Honda I've seen around for a while.
