Honda has unveiled the all-new Acura NSX in Japan, and it will hit showrooms in February 2017. The Hybrid model can now be ordered in Japan for 23,700,000 Japanese Yen (Rs 1.55 crore).
The NSX first made its debut in the 1990s, and were known for their winning combination of sports car capabilities and every day usability. Honda hopes that the new NSX will help boost their image in performance oriented cars. The new car has been co-developed by Honda’s engineers in Japan and the USA, and only five of these cars will roll off their dedicated plant in Ohio, every day.
The all-new NSX uses a mid-engine hybrid powertrain that comprises of three electric motors and a V6 twin-turbo engine that’s coupled to a nine-speed gearbox. This motor is capable unleashing a maximum output of 581bhp and 659Nm of torque to all the wheels.
Honda president, Takahiro Hachigo, said, “Generating profit from the NSX may be a struggle, but by focussing on both functional cars and advanced performance, we will raise the Honda brand.” Honda targets to make 800 cars for the American market, and 100 cars for Japan in the first year.
