Ford GT's benchmark was NSX-R


Ford Vehicle Engineering Manager thinks that NSX-R has best shifter feel in the world.


So both McLaren F1 and Ford GT used NSX as benchmark.

The video said that the overall main car that the Ford GT took data from was the 360 Modena.

Thank God they didn't get inspiration from the NSX's engine, otherwise the GT would have been underpowered.

seems like every car benchmarks the NSX. I bet it's true but it's getting cheesy hearing it all the time.

This Ford engineer needs better product knowledge training -- he says the newer Ford GT is the first midship engine car Ford has built since the original GT-40? What about the Ford RS200?

There nothing cheesy about that, the nsx was an engineering masterpiece. Honda engines powered the McLarens that had dominated Formula One few years before the lunch of the nsx, they also had developmental input from Ayrton Senna.

Engineers all around the world loved it, Gordon Murray benchmarked the NSX during McLaren F1 development, while Ferrari scurried back to the drawing board and transformed the 348 into the F355 as a direct consequence of the Honda’s brilliance.

Gordon Murray, Being a fan of Honda engines, quoted " I later went to Honda's Tochigi Research Center on two occasions and requested that they consider building for the McLaren F1 a 4.5 litre V12 or V14. I asked, I tried to persuade them, but in the end could not convince them to do it, and the McLaren F1 ended up equipped with a BMW engine."

Ken Okuyama who was supervising the design of the Enzo Ferrari was back in the days the chief designer for the nsx..

Mr. Gato (Head of Honda V10 and V12 F1 Engine Program between 1988 to 1992 ) went to work to ferrari afterward and Mr. Gato at some point called Mr. Uehara and joked Ferrari might as well put a Honda-badge on their engines

its all those facts that make me understand why the nsx/honda is/was the benchmark in motorsports.

i believed it when they said the F1 was benchmarked with the NSX
but this sounds bullshit
GT40 was designed when the NSX team were still in diapers.
not quite but you get the point.

Other than the general look and shape and drivetrain layout, there's not much in common between the two.

I love how 20 years later people still gripe how the NSX was underpowered and most of those have never driven one lol.
Yes they were underpowered in regards to most if not all supercars of the time but they were not building a supercar. Thats like saying the 300zx, GTR's or Supra of the time were supercars no they were competition and Honda killed em by applying supercar aerodynamics geometry and engineering into a HONDA lol

The NSX is way underpowered. Stock early production NSX's only put down 210rwhp on our dyno. We have a fully built NSX in the shop right now with a 67mm turbo setup which makes double the power at low boost and close to triple at high boost. They are a completely different beast with more power under the bonnet

No it's not.

You're absolutely clueless about these two cars... just beause they look similar, or similary named, does not mean one is modernized version of the other.
