We ask NSX Chief Engineer Ted Klaus the big questions like: How much will it cost and when will it finally get here?
To creatively paraphrase NSX chief engineer Ted Klaus, the upcoming Acura supercar will be like a Nissan GT-R, but built for drivers.
Exactly what does that mean? In essence it will deliver truly world-class performance without an ultra-exotic price tag. It also will maintain the brand’s core man-machine synergy principle.
Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, the all-new Acura NSX isn’t just the flagship for the brand, it’s a technology showcase for new hybrid and all-wheel drive technologies. It comes as some surprise then to hear then that the Honda luxury division may be planning a non-hybrid version of the supercar.
While the show is long over, we just stumbled across these live shots of the red NSX on the Honda press site (which oddly never made the rounds online) and couldn’t resist sharing.
Exact details on the NSX aren’t yet known but it does use a mid-mounted 3.5-liter V6 engine and what Acura calls a Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system (similar to that in the new RLX), with electric motors in the front wheels.
