Acura NSX catches fire on Nurburgring, company refuses to share any details

Article by Christian A., on July 25, 2014

As you may know already, a prototype version of the upcoming Acura NSX caught fire yesterday while testing on the Nurburgring, Germany. An Acura spokesman confirmed the fire, like he had other choice, and said that the company is investigating the cause. Still, he didn’t want to give any more details as the vehicle is still under development, but he did say that no injuries occurred.

The fire doesn’t mean that the NSX will not be the best sports car, as several cases happened before. What we do know is that it will be powered by a V6 engine combined with Acura’s Sport Hybrid all-wheel-drive setup, a three-motor high-performance system.

According to the company, one of the motors will be integrated with the V6 engine and the new dual-clutch transmission that deliver the power to the rear wheels, while the other two electric motors will send the power to the front wheels.

Honda will build the new NSX at a 184,000-square-foot plant adjacent to Honda of America Manufacturing Inc.’s Marysville, Ohio, plant that assembles the Honda Accord.
