Nice study of one of the better known Super GT Team cars. I figured they had to switch from the NSX, but what's the HSV? My guess is it's something neat that's impossible to get in the US as seems to be the way Honda's been for near ever. :)

It was originally intended to be the next version of the NSX.

The closed-prototype idea is wrong- the HSV-010 competes in the GT500 class with the GT-R and LF-A, and a few others. Honda found a loophole in the rules that stated a car had to be production-ready to participate (basically, it meant that a car that was ready to be built but not built was allowed into Super GT).

Although, the car I really miss from Super GT is the ARTA Garaiya- that was a nice car, you couldn't deny it.

The loophole's interesting. I guess it allowed the Honda affiliates to continue to put a car on the track and keep them in the series. Otherwise, they'd have likely backed out, and the result could have hurt the series.

I had to look that one up- The Garaiya was very unusual, and the ARTA team is also rather fascinating in that it's been behind trying to find the "Great International Japanese Racing Driver" for some time and been kind of sputtering in that regard. Maybe Muto in Indy Car- we'll have to see.

Definitely, the series would lose a huge part of its fanbase if Honda were forced to leave. It would hurt Honda, too- think of all the money and extra fame they'd be out of, and all the developmental possibilities lost.

I didn't know ARTA was competing in IndyCar. Unless they aren't. Then it would be awkward for me.

"ARTA first entered the Indy Racing League in 2003 backing a car driven by Japanese-American Roger Yasukawa that was prepared by Fernandez Racing. This car was called "Super Aguri Fernandez Racing" and Aguri Suzuki was listed as a team owner. In 2004, Yasukawa was replaced by Kosuke Matsuura who won both the Indianapolis 500 and the league's rookie of the year honors. In 2007, ARTA and Aguri switched their support from Fernandez to Panther Racing, bringing Matsuura with them as well as a Japanese rookie to run in the Indy Pro Series developmental league, Hideki Mutoh. Mutoh won 2 races, finished second in Pro Series points, and made his IndyCar debut at the final race of the 2007 season, finishing 8th and recording the fastest race lap. Matsuura has finished no better than 13th in IndyCar Series points and has not won a race in his four years in the series. Mutoh took on the Panasonic and Formula Dream sponsorship for 2008 and moved to Andretti Green Racing and won Rookie of the Year honors. However, the entry is no longer branded as an ARTA project."

At least they did participate at one time. Sato appears to be the only Japanese driver currently mixed up in Indy Car, and he seems to be on the cusp of something good.

Japan's been really trying to gain more international recognition and success for its drivers for decades. Kobayashi's been the most successful in F1 and it really hasn't led him to a better ride, which is unfortunate.

Maybe Sato will win in Indycar. I think it's likely.

The new Toyota LMP might also have a better season at LeMans. It showed great promise and had a combination of bad luck and some poor judgement. I think if they'd field a 3-car team and work to be more careful for the entire event, i think they may win, at least get a podium.

Then there's the Nissan Deltawing, which Nismo helped big time in development, even though the firm that designed them is American. That had promise too.

My guess is they're running it in their equivalent of a closed prototype class then so they can maintain a presence in Super GT. If they were to back out of THAT- it'd be a serious loss of face.

nice shading. i like the chrome material on the door. my only crit would be that the reflection on the door doesn't match the possible environment in terms of lighting. also i'm not sure about the reflectors direction of the halogen on the drivers side. But maaan...i'm in love with this car-paint. so sleek...wheels are killer also...i wonder whats your usual time frame for a piece like that?

Thanks - Yeah the BG is a bit of a mash-up of images. The reference photo had way too much stuff going on with the background and odd colors. You'd probably say the same thing about the reflection if I'd used the "real" background.

Started this Saturday at Noon, finished 10 PM the next evening - maybe 16 hours in it.

yeah, the bg still works good for its purpose. sounds like a quick over-the-weekend job. if you have to do 2 or 3 angles of the same car, probably you gonna choose the 3D...
