Our neighbors over at Import Tuner teased what Nissan will be displaying at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show (TMS), which runs from October 30 to November 8 at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center. Days earlier Honda did the same, announcing its lineup of production and concept vehicles and motorcycles, as well as other highlights from its exhibit. To no one’s surprise, leading the pack are two heavily anticipated models, both already for sale in different parts of the world but eventually making their way Stateside (if not already here).
If you guessed NSX and Civic Type-R (CTR), you win a cookie! (Not really.) But seriously, both will be in Honda’s booth, which we’re hearing will cover the largest floor area of any single brand at the show. Specs on the new NSX should be common knowledge by now: direct-injected twin turbo VTEC V-6 engine mounted on a lightweight vehicle body in a mid-ship layout together with a Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling-All Wheel Drive) hybrid system. As for the FWD CTR, again, you should have this committed to memory: 2.0-liter VTEC TURBO engine with direct-injection, makes in the neighborhood of 305 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, more than for any previous Honda Type R model.
There will be more in the booth, but c’mon, it’ll be tough for any vehicle to step out from the considerable shadow of either performance car. Honda will be touting its new fuel cell conveyance, tentatively called the FCV, which features a cruising range of more than 435 miles. The exhibit will also include the Step WGN equipped with Waku Waku Gate, the all-new S660 open-top sports-type mini-vehicle, and others. Plus, Honda will have several concept models, including the Project 2&4 powered by RC213V, designed to fuse together the values of two- and four-wheel mobility, which made its global debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this past September.
