Acura NSX production version due in 2015
Honda’s Acura arm is busy these days getting ready for putting into production the highly-awaited NSX rebirth which is scheduled to occur sometime in 2015. For this ambitious project they will invest $70 million in order to establish a new assembly plant in Ohio, United States. At this facility approximately 100 employees will have the important role of building the new Acura NSX. Interestingly, all of them will be gathered from Honda’s existing factories and will have as objective to provide the NSX with the “perfect blend of associate craftsmanship and technology.” We should also mention that the facility will have a surface of 184,000 square feet.
What is known so far about the Acura NSX is that power will come from a V6 mid-mounted engine which will work together with an SH-AWD system or as Acura likes to call it, a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All Wheel Drive system. This will employ a couple of electric motors which will motivate the front axle of the car. There will also be a third electric motor which will be built into the dual clutch transmission.
Speed Carz holds more information about the car which is scheduled for a 2015 release. In terms of pricing, no official details are known at the moment but it is believed it will be more expensive than a Nissan GT-R. When the concept came out, Honda described the interior cabin as providing excellent visibility as well as a strong driving position. The cockpit was driver-focused in order to allow the person behind the wheel to fully concentrate on what’s really important, driving the NSX.
More details about the 2015 Acura NSX are expected to surface at upcoming major auto shows where the Japanese marque could bring an updated variant of the concept to entice potential buyers.
