The second-generation Honda NSX unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show 2015 earlier in the year is certainly a car which caught the world’s attention. After all, its development and testing have spanned over countless years. Seemingly not satisfied with the completed project however, the Japanese marque soon confirmed that an even more potent Honda NSX Type R variant is in the works.
Expert automotive renderer Jon Sibal has decided to render how a potentially more aggressive and track-oriented second-gen NSX could look. Up front, aggressive canards have been installed onto the bumper alongside the fitment of a more prominent splitter. Additionally, lightweight racing wheels have been fitted as well as new side skirts and at the rear, an eye-catching wing.
As a reminder, 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.
