after a long hiatus after the economy downturn in 2008, Honda president Takashi has announced that the supercar project will be resurrected under the model HSV-010. it looks like Honda might have sorely missed the supercar actions that saw Lexus LFA wowing the world over and as well as a host of reincarnations from the likes of Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and Nissan GT-R. so is it an announcement spited by its competitors’ development or is it going to be real? whatever it is, we will just take it with a pinch of salt. until then, lets just savor the goodness of some images of the Honda HSV-10 GT after the jump.

this upcoming purple on black (carbon-fiber) reincarnation of the Zonda is said to be based on the Cinque which means it will likely to get a 7.3 liter V12 motor developed by AMG with an output of 678 hp and 780 Nm of torque. well, want one? i guess you have to just sit and wait for now. no words of when this will be made available. but why 750? my bet is, it would be probably mean a bored-up version of Cinque engine, to 7.5 liter instead. that’s just my wild guess. either that or it simply means the 750 could be a tuned up version of the Cinque with 750 horses. we will just to wait and see.
