In doing so, it showed the steady progress it’s making toward the planned 2015 launch.
“With leadership from our R&D and manufacturing teams here in Ohio, we are developing a next-generation sports car that will be equally at home on the street and on the race track, so it is natural for us to showcase the prototype vehicle here at Mid-Ohio. It is exciting for us to see the prototype running on track, reflecting the great progress we’re making toward the 2015 global launch of the NSX, as we engineer a new sports-car experience for customers around the world,” said Ted Klaus, chief engineer of Honda R&D Americas, Inc.
The new NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive with advanced hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors - one motor integrated with the engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission that drives the rear wheels and two motors driving the front wheels.
There is currently no news on whether the all-new NSX will be making its way to South Africa.
