The New Acura NSX

As the next Acura NSX is on the verge to start its production, racing fans will get a chance to see the archetype in action on a race course not far from where the car will be built which is The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

That should be fun to see Acura NSX on the track. Everyone is rather excited about the new NSX, which unlike its predecessor, will be built in Ohio.

Acura has indeed produced a striking concept. While the new, all-wheel drive V6 hybrid NSX is a remarkably different car from its ancestor, the hope is that it will be able to provide similar driving thrills as its ancestor or predecessor. Acura and Honda as well could definitely use a home run at the moment.

Acura calls the system Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive and recently got a preview of the basic setup on a recent trip to Japan by way of a front-engine Honda Accord demonstration vehicle. The same principles should apply to the NSX, albeit flipped front-to-back to match the supercar’s powertrain layout.

Given that this is still technically a concept, Acura hasn’t revealed anything about total system output, or even the size and the structure of the engine. Though the company, however revealed, that the V-6 will be equipped with directs injection and a next-gen VTEC system. Honda recently told us its upcoming direct-injected 3.5-liter V-6 would be optimum for at least 308 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque which is the figure on at least that much for the reborn NSX, which could perhaps boast slightly higher displacement.
