2016 Honda NSX

Just after the 2016 Honda NSX was revealed at the Detroit Motor Show 2015, X-Tomi Design has decided to render the latest Japanese supercar as a Targa and it certainly looks good.

While it remains unlikely that a drop-top variant of the latest-generation Honda NSX will be produced, if Honda/Acura were to go down that path, they’d likely take a leaf out of the C7 Corvette Stingray’s book and offer the car with a removable roof rather than a complete folding softtop like a traditional convertible.

Of course, powering the 2016 Honda NSX is a twin-turbocharged double overhead cam V6 engine mated to a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission and joined with no less than three electric motors. One of those electric motors powers the rear wheels while the other two send power to the front wheels to make the 2016 Honda NSX all-wheel drive. Performance specifications have yet to be revealed nor have horsepower and torque ratings.

Another key utilisation of the new Honda NSX is its Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All Wheel Drive system which includes four different driving modes of Quiet, Sport, Sport+ and Track. When the Japanese supercar is switched between these modes, the engine, electric motors, transmission and chassis will all respond in different ways with Quiet mode seeing the car powered purely by electric power and the other three seeing the electric motors working in conjunction with the V6 engine.
