The seemingly endless sequence of next-generation Acura NSX concept vehicles that began in 2007 is about to come to an end. Honda says the production version of the new NSX supercar will have its world premiere at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 12, 2015.
The Detroit show car is said to reflect the production design and specifications of the mid-engine Acura that is scheduled to launch during 2015.
It will be powered by a three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit, similar in principle to that of the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid AH-AWD, but with primary drive to the rear wheels.
“The next-generation NSX will deliver a ‘new sports experience’ true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager.
The car is being developed by a global team of Honda engineers led by the company’s North American R&D operations in Raymond, Ohio. Its design was led by the Acura Design Studio in Torrance, California.
The NSX will be produced exclusively at a new plant called the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio.
