The new-generation NSX was originally presented in concept form at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show. As expected, the development of the production car took three years, and was led by an American R&D team, while the design development was led by the Acura Design Studio in Torrance, CA.
The new NSX will be produced at the new Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio.
The specifications for the production version, due to launch in 2015, include a three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit.
“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 NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergised brand.”
“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.”
