Honda (UK) has launched a pre-order bank for the new Honda NSX to keep up with the exceptional demand for the supercar. By making a deposit of £5,000, interested buyers could become one of the first persons in the United Kingdom to drive a brand new NSX when it is rolled out in the country in 2015. Honda unveiled a dynamically-styled NSX Concept at the Detroit Motor Show in 2012, providing a glimpse of how the carmaker’s next performance vehicle would look like.
The NSX Concept features a low and wide stance and comes with a dynamic proportions underscored by simple yet modern surfacing as well as edgy details that exudes attitude of a true supercar. The NSX Concept features an interior that comes with excellent outstanding visibility and a strong driving position.
The vehicle boasts of the “Simple Sports Interface” that reduces interior clutter, thereby allowing a driver to enjoy the driving experience. Just like the original NSX, the new supercar is developed by designers to deliver synergy between man and machine.
The new NSX has a mission to deliver an all- new sports car experience that mixes supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance. The NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine paired to Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.
The powertrain will be installed with a distinct 2-Electric Motor Drive Unit that comes with a bilateral torque adjustable control system that will allow it to provide negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering, which Honda expects will deliver handling performance not shown by previous AWD systems.
Honda has tasked the development of the new NSX to a global R&D team led by designers and engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Los Angeles, California, and Raymond, Ohio. Honda will build the new NSX at a new production site in central Ohio.
