Honda has unveiled the much anticipated NSX Concept at the Detroit Auto Show. The first generation was in production from 1990 till 2005. The Japanese automaker had shown several NSX concept models over the years but none of them make it to production so far. However, this NSX concept is the real deal with the production model to debut within the next three years. It will be manufactured in Ohio at a facility to be named later on.

Like the original NSX from the early 1990s, the next-generation supercar will have a mid-mounted V6 engine and will make use of lightweight materials. The V6 VTEC engine benefits from direct-injection technology and is linked to a dual clutch transmission with a built-in electric motor. In addition, it will also feature Honda's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system that utilizes two electric motors that can instantly send negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering for improved handling and efficiency.

Honda did not reveal any performance specifications but is rumored to pump out 400bhp with a century sprint timing of less than 5 seconds. President and CEO of Honda Motor Co., Ltd, who led the development of Honda's first NSX supercar, shared the values of the new NSX, "Like the first NSX, we will again express high performance through engineering efficiency. 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."

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
