The NSX Concept gives an indication of the next great performance vehicle from Honda‘s Acura brand. Making use of lightweight materials and a mid-mounted VTEC® V-6 engine, the NSX Concept employs several new technologies for Acura, including the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® (Super Handling All Wheel Drive™) system.
“This Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system will make NSX the ultimate expression of Acura’s idea to create synergy between man and machine,” said Takanobu Ito, president and CEO of Honda Motor Co., Ltd. “The NSX will make the driver one with the car to enhance dynamic driving abilities without getting in the way.”
“Like the first NSX, we will again express high performance through engineering efficiency,” added Ito, who led the development of Acura’s first NSX supercar. “In this new era, even as we focus on the fun to drive spirit of the NSX, I think a supercar must respond positively to environmental responsibilities.”
The new Acura supercar is expected to debut in the next three years, in the meantime check out this footage of the NSX Concept from Gran Turismo 5:
