It’s been a long time since we last saw this one. The next Honda NSX was last seen strutting its stuff to the public for the first time in Ohio and has been pretty much under the radar since then. However, with launch due in 2015, the car has been spotted testing around the Nurburgring wearing a full camouflage.
Despite covered in camouflage, the similarities to the concept shown in Detroit are rather tangible, with the arrow-like nose and large trapezoidal air inlets making appearance. At the rear, the prototype boasts C-shaped tail lights linked by a horizontal brake light and a revised rear spoiler.
Honda has yet to finalise the details on the powertrain for the NSX but we know it consists of a longitudinally-mounted direct-injection V6 petrol engine that drives the rear wheels and three units of electric motors – one in the new dual-clutch gearbox and two at the front axle. The company expects a combined output of at least 400 hp from the setup.
As reported, the NSX will go into production at Honda’s USD70 million Performance Manufacturing Centre plant in Ohio.
