2015 Acura NSX Concept – Please Build This One!
09 Jan, 2012
It's hard to get excited about an NSX concept these days since there's been so damn many of them since Acura ended production of the original NSX back in 2005. But this one is different. All those concepts seem to have paid off as the latest iteration is one sexy machine.
As with the original NSX, the latest concept focuses on lightweight handling fun. Like the original model, 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. In addition, two-motor electric-drive unit can provide torque to the front wheels during cornering to improve handling.
