With its small engine and lightweight design, the original Honda/Acura NSX was always an alternative breed of sports car. And now, after having been missing from the market for several years, American Honda unveiled the new NSX Concept that points to the design and technology of its next-generation supercar.

Badged as an Acura in the US, the new Honda NSX is expected to go on sale in the next three years. What’s more, this high-tech flagship will be developed by Honda R&D Americas and manufactured in Ohio for sports car enthusiasts around the world.

The NSX Concept uses lightweight materials and a mid-mounted V6 engine as well as an innovative new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system.

While most supercars opt for a large engine, the NSX Concept champions the racing philosophy of a favorable power-to-weight ratio. Utilizing a unique Two Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system, the new hybrid all-wheel drive system can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering, which Honda anticipates will deliver handling performance unmatched by previous AWD systems.

In addition to the handling benefits of the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system, a powerful next-generation VTEC V6 engine with direct-injection will work in concert with a dual-clutch transmission with built-in electric motor, to create supercar acceleration while offering outstanding efficiency.
