The Acura NSX concept, which was first unveiled at the 2012 Detroit
Auto Show, was introduced not just as a some sort of play thing created
to while-away the hours in the Acura design studio. It was concieved
from the very start with production in mind.
The production version of the NSX concept hit the streets in 2015
and is powered by a hybrid drivetrain which utilizes a mid-mounted
V6 and a unique 2 Electric Motor Drive Unit with a Bilateral
Torque Adjustable Control System. The NSX will employ the company's
latest SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system.
To boost both performance and fuel economy, the new Acura NSX concept
makes use of lightweight materials. Takanobu Ito, president
and CEO of Honda Motor Company, and also rather fittingly the man
who led the development Acura's first NSX supercar, said of the NSX
concept: "Like the first NSX, we will again express high performance
through engineering efficiency. In this new era, even as we focus
on the fun to drive spirit of the NSX, I think a supercar must respond
positively to environmental responsibilities."
