Here is a nice video picturing the new Honda NSX Concept, which was premiered at the last Geneva Motor Show following a first appearance at the North American Internationa Auto Show in New York, where it was displayed with an Acura badge (the final version of this car will in fact be marketed in US and Canada as a model from Honda’s luxury brand).
The production version of the NSX should be ready in 2015 and is supposed to retain most of the elements of the concept. The prototype measures 4.33 meters in length, 1.90 in width, 1.16 in height and has a wheel base of 2.58 meters. Under the bonnet pulses a naturally aspirated, mid-mounted V6 VTEC engine mated to a pair of electric motors that allow the car to increase its power while keeping the fuel consumption down.
The model comes with the SH-AWD (Super Hybrid All Wheel Drive) system which makes sure that the right amount of torque is delivered to each wheel of the car at all time in order to obtain the maximum traction and performance in every situation. The transmission is a dual clutch auto, while the wheels are 19″ on the front axle and 20″ at the back.
