After teasing the 2015 Acura NSX on the track numerous the past week in extremely short clips, a prototype for the 2015 Acura NSX recently made its dynamic debut on track at Mid-Ohio and can finally be heard and seen in all its rolling glory in full high-definition!
This particular prototype is very similar to the latest concept version of the car released but does feature a modified front end incorporating new blacked-out headlights. Also, if you look closely, you’ll notice this prototype is rolling on a set of HRE wheels!
The powerhouse will feature a direct-injected mid-mounted V6 engine mated to a seven-speed manual transmission. Additionally, 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.
With the 2015 Acura NSX not set to hit dealerships for a couple years, it’s not yet known when Acura/Honda will give the production ready model its world debut. However, a major motor show sometime next year is likely.
