Honda NSX prototype images released ahead of global unveiling

The second generation Honda NSX that premiered in the Avengers movie has now taken its road legal shape. Its first generation spanned for 15 years from 1990 and captured many a hearts for its sleek styling and mid-engined sports car setup. Honda has now released official pictures of the new second generation which is set for its dynamic debut in August as part of the Indycar Series race in Ohio.

The final production model has inherited the Sport Hybrid AWD set up from the concept along with the chiselled styling. The previous NSX was sketched by Italian design house Pininfarina and followed a sleek and flowing design with a distinct rear spoiler. With the new generation model, Honda has opted for a more aggressive, sharp look with wedge shaped intakes and a devilish headlight design.

Despite being hybrid, the car is unlike any other Honda has ever created. The rear wheels are powered by a conventional V6 expected to produce around 400PS, while the front wheels will get independent electric motor. To add to all this power, the dual-clutch transmission gets an additional motor as part of a KERS system. 

The car will not be available on sale till 2015, and details and specifications of the car are also kept secret, but if its predecessor is anything to go by, the new NSX is something worth waiting for. After all, the first generation was made with a purpose, to rival the Ferrari 348, so this one may just match the 458, and why it wouldn’t. The V6 along with the electric motors should match the 420PS V8 powering the Italian stag, at least on paper.  Weather it will on the track, only time will tell.
