A prototype Acura NSX lapped the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio in coordination with the Honda Indy 200. We like how the NSX prototype sported custom graphics that hint at Acura’s intention to go racing with the new NSX. The car is slated to launch in 2015 and according to Honda targets “next-generation supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance.” It’s now common knowledge that the Acura NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® is 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 V6 engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels, and two independent motors driving the front. The system enables instant delivery of negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance unparalleled by current AWD systems. We understand that the drivetrain on the demo car is a near-production set-up. We’re sold…sign us up for a test drive.
