Acura introduced the new NSX concept at the 2012 Detroit motor show and here are some official pictures of the car. They've shown several concept models to offer a replacement to the car though none of them have ever made it into the production phase.
Acura says the NSX Concept is the real deal with the production model to debut within the next three years. The NSX features a mid-mounted naturally aspirated V6 engine but with a twist; Acura's engineers added the firm's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system that utilizes three electric motors.
The next VTEC V6 engine comes with direct-injection and is linked to a dual clutch transmission with built-in electric motor.
"This Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system will make NSX the ultimate expression of Acura's idea to create synergy between man and machine," said Takanobu Ito, president and CEO of Honda Motor. "The NSX will make the driver one with the car to enhance dynamic driving abilities without getting in the way."
"Like the first NSX, we will again express high performance through engineering efficiency," added Ito, who led the development of Acura's first NSX supercar. "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."
