Acura has previewed the upcoming 2015 Acura NSX in an extremely-short seven second teaser video and while that may not sound all that interesting, it does give us our first moving shots of the 2015 Acura NSX prototype as well as a glimpse into how the revolutionary Japanese supercar will sound when it hits the production line next year!
While showing only minor revisions of the version shown last year, the 2015 NSX Concept maintains its low and wide stance with edgy details, while some of the styling cues resemble the Audi R8. Honda says that the newly developed cabin offers great visibility and a strong driving position with a Simple Sports Interface, which minimizes interior clutter allowing the person behind the wheel to focus on driving.
The powerhouse will feature a direct-injected mid-mounted V6 engine mated to a seven-speed manual transmission. Additional three electric motors will work together to help drive all four wheels, and to assist with acceleration and braking.
Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system will also be utilized. The system is an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors – one motor integrated with the V6 engine and two motors driving the front wheels. The system enables instant delivery of negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering.
