It's been seven years since Acura stopped the production of its sports car, the NSX. The auto maker decided to revive the legend with the introducing of the NSX concept at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. The biggest change made to the revealed car is the new mid-mounted direct injection VTEC V6 engine coupled with Acura's hybrid super handling all wheel drive system. Consisting of two electric engines, the SH-AWD system allows the engines to function independently of each other. It also allows generating both positive and negative torque to the front wheels while cornering. While this system is paired with a dual clutch transmission, the transmission gives the concept three separate electric power plants.
Acura NSX was built with the race philosophy in mind using the lightweight build materials. As for the styling of all new super car, it is rather classic: aggressive angles in the nose, low profile roof line, and a windswept look running into a small rear spoiler. Using the low ground clearance, the NSX features hard angles.
As promised by President and CEO of Honda Motor Co. Takanobu Ito, the supercar will answer the environmental responsibilities, in spite of its fun to drive spirit. Acura NSX will become a production model within the next three years.
