Honda’s much needed brand revival supercar, the new NSX, has risen from the ashes and is back at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany for some track action. This is the first time the NSX has returned to the greenhell since a prototype went up in flames during testing in July.
Despite wearing heavy camouflage, the NSX prototype can be seen retaining the basic shape of the NSX concept, which was first unveiled at the North American Auto Show in Detroit last year.
The new NSX is developed by a global R&D team led by designers and engineers at Honda’s Ohio facilities in the US, where the car will be built.
Like the original Honda NSX, the new NSX will feature a unique powertrain and lightweight body structure. It will be powered by a mid-mounted V6 engine mated to Acura’s new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system. Power output is expected to be in the region of 300 kW (400 hp) and driving all four wheels.
