Honda to unveil successor to NSX luxury sports car in 2008: report.

TOKYO, Jan. 6 Kyodo

Honda Motor Co. is planning to start selling in 2008 a new luxury sports car with an advanced version of the V-10 engine used in the Formula One auto race, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported Friday.

The new car is a successor to the NSX luxury sports car whose production was halted at the end of last year and will be placed as the high-end model of the Acura luxury brand, the report said.

The Acura brand, which was launched in the United States in 1986, will be introduced in Japan with some 100 dealerships by the fall of 2008.

Fully utilizing state-of-the-art technologies amassed so far, Honda intends to make the successor to the NSX what its president and CEO, Takeo Fukui, calls a ''super sports car in the new era,'' the report said.
