Nohda 500V “IMSA”
The Nohda 500V is the very best that Nohda had to offer. With two 2.5L V6’s from the Nohda Assent Sport combined together to form a formidable 5L V12, the 500V was specifically designed from the ground up as a racecar.
The chassis is a steel monocoque chassis with front and read dual wishbone suspension. Utilising a lightweight fibreglass body, the 500V is light, giving the car a decent power to weight ratio.
The 5L V12, formed from 2 V6s, is a reliable mechanically fuel injected engine providing close to 500hp without a turbocharger. The V12 also uses an full aluminium construction, further reducing the weight of the car.
The complete afterthought that was the Homologation spec is fitted with a detuned V12. Using a more reliable and cost efficient fuel injection system, the Homologation spec only has 350 or so horsepower at it’s disposal, along with a more premium interior. While this increases the overall weight, the homologation spec should still be a capable sports/track car.
