    Default This is the new Acura NSX



    Acura is bringing a dead legend back to life with the unveiling of their NSX concept at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

    The all new super car has lost some weight thanks to lightweight build materials and Acura’s race inspired philosophy of a well balanced power to weight ratio. The new NSX will be powered my a mid-mounted direct injection VTEC V6 engine which will utilize Acura’s hybrid super handling all wheel drive system. The SH-AWD system consists of two electric engines which operate independently of each other and can generate positive or negative torque to the front wheels during cornering. The V6 SH-AWD system will be paired with a dual clutch transmission outfitted with its own electric motor giving the NSX three separate electric power plants.

    The styling on the new NSX is very much a classic supercar look, using low ground clearance, aggressive angles in the nose, a very low profile roof line and a windswept look running into a small rear spoiler to achieve its supercar style. Hard angles are all over the NSX which gives it a very rigid and serious stance.

    President and CEO of Honda Motor Co. Takanobu Ito said, “In this new era, even as we focus on the fun to drive spirit of the NSX, I think a supercar must respond positively to environmental responsibilities.” Ito also revealed that the NSX will be a production model within the next three years and it will be built in an Ohio car plant.

    minus the wheels and some more realistic headlights and this is an R8 killer in the looks dept.

    guys - all supercars are basically going to be the same shape. it's called aerodynamics.

    It had 3 electric motors and sh awd. the electric motors are setup that in cornering the will brake and shift the weight of thecar around to make it handle better and be faster around the track.

    More like "heavier" and "slower on track", but people that can't drive will have the computers to save them and make them feel like a hero.

    its the way cars are evolving....kind of dull and boring like the nissan gtr.

    i would choose a car with less power and technology and a proper 6-speed to have some fun and keep maintance reasonable/affordable

    this is sexier to me at least..

    Retarded pedestrian collision rules killed the looks of the modern super car.

    The front bumper now has to be something like 24" off the ground so it doesn't cut the legs out from people, hence the death of real aerodynamic low nose wedge shapes like we all grew up with (countach, F40, McLaren F1, etc). That's why the new cars all look so funny at the front, ie the "R8" huge schnoz.
