Acura has announced that it will officially reveal the production model of the NSX supercar at the Detroit Auto Show next month, which is where it made its debut as a concept in 2012.
In order to build up excitement even more, Acura has released new teasers confirming that the brand-new super car is in production and ready to roll onto dealership floors later in 2015.
According to Ted Klaus, the car’s chief engineer, the Acura NSX has been through intensive production over the last three years. He calls it a “human-centred supercar that responds to the will of the driver and that builds upon the NSX heritage.”
Aside from the new teasers, the Japanese automaker is keeping a lot of the details quiet. What we do know though is that the vehicle is being developed by a global team of engineers led by Acura’s North American R&D centre in Raymond, Ohio. The vehicle is slated to be built nearby – in Marysville.
The NSX will come equipped with an advanced hybrid drivetrain called the Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system. This system will be made up of a twin-turbocharged V-6 engine with a dual-clutch transmission and three electric motors. Two of the electric motors will power the front wheels, while the third electric motor and V6 will send power to the rear wheels.
The Detroit Auto Show will kick off on January 12, 2015. Here’s a sneak peek to satiate your appetite in the meantime:
