Acura Reveals Next Generation NSX at Detroit Auto Show

Blindsided and somewhat overshadowed at this year’s NAIAS in Detroit by Ford’s reveal of the GT 3 was Acura’s reveal of the next generation NSX.

This model is a mid-engine sport hybrid, powered by a twin turbocharged V-6 engine paired with a 9-speed dual clutch transmission. The new model will feature three electric motors — two up front and one to the rear.

The Acura NSX is enhanced by a Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All Wheel Drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD) system, what provides articulate response time for steering, braking and throttle. Moreover, it will enhance vehicle stability, control and launch performance of all-wheel drive. The NSX’s Agile Handling Assist (AHA) makes use of brake torque to further enhance yaw response and dynamic stability control.

Below is Acura’s official debut video of it’s latest jewel. What do you think?
