Honda has released a 30-second video clip of the eagerly awaited production version of its NSX supercar ahead of its official unveiling at next month’s North American International Auto Show.
The NSX will feature a three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit that incorporates a V6 mounted behind the two occupants that sends its power to the rear wheels augmented by an electric motor. The firm’s SH-AWD (Sport Hybrid – All-Wheel-Drive) drivetrain set-up incorporates one electric motor in a dual-clutch transmission, forming a hybrid setup, and two more motors that can instantly apportion torque to the front wheels during cornering. Power outputs have yet to be confirmed, but reports suggest that the new NSX could pack around 373 kW.
“After three years of intensive development work we are excited to reveal this next-generation supercar—the Acura NSX—to the world,” said Ted Klaus, chief engineer and global project leader over NSX development. “We’ve developed a human-centered supercar that responds to the will of the driver and that builds upon the NSX heritage.”
The production NSX will bow at the North American International Auto Show on January 12th.
