- NSX one of 1,200 vehicles offered by the game

The next chapter of the Gran Turismo driving sim saga dropped today, December 6th, and among the 1,200 cars offered by GT6 is one special Acura concept that every Honda head worth his salt has been clamoring for since the first rumors began bubbling up six years ago: the next generation NSX supercar. GT6 effectively represents the first opportunity to get behind the wheel of the next NSX, which isn’t slated to drop in real life until 2015.
Only in concept form, and digitally rendered at that, the GT6 2015 NSX will floss a mid-mounted, direct-injected and twin-turbocharged V-6 engine driving Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. The three-motor high-performance hybrid system synthesizes torque vectoring all-wheel drive with hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors – one integrated with the V-6 and its transmission driving the rear wheels and two high-output electric motors driving the front wheels.
"The wait is over for NSX fans eager to get behind the wheel of the next Acura supercar, and they can rest assured the actual production car will be even more amazing than the in-game concept version," enthused Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of Auto Operations at American Honda Motor, Co., Inc.
With the new NSX, players will also get to choose from exotic whips like the Pagani Huayra, Fisker Karma, Chevrolet C7 Corvette, BMW Z8, Aston Martin One-77, Audi R18, KTM X-Bow, and others. It will also feature a festival called "Vision Gran Turismo” that boasts concept cars designed for the game by various companies, as well as 71 layouts of 33 tracks and a new flexible rendering engine. However, in a move that still has us scratching our heads, the game will not be for the just-released Playstation 4 but rather the last-gen. PS3 (go figure).
Regardless of where it gets played, we just want to have our turn in the NSX of the future. For more info on the game, head on over to www.gran-turismo.com/us/.
