The Japanese company has confirmed its second-generation Honda NSX supercar will debut at the Detroit auto show in the middle of January.
Coinciding with this announcement, the company has released a short teaser video and some moodily lit publicity shots of the new NSX.
Judging from the latest set of officially sanctioned photos, as well as spy photographs of the NSX undergoing final testing at Germany’s Nurburgring track, the production vehicle won’t differ too significantly looks-wise from the concept car.
The NSX concept debuted at the 2012 Detroit auto show, with an updated version of the car being presented at the 2013 edition of the same show. A roadster version appeared in 2012’s The Avengers movie as Tony Stark’s ride of choice.
Like the original NSX from the 1990s, the second-generation vehicle will feature a mid-mounted V6 engine.
However, unlike the original car, the new NSX will also come standard with an on-demand all-wheel-drive system consisting of three electric motors, a dual-clutch transmission and a twin-turbocharged V6 engine.
Development of the new car has been led by Honda’s US-based engineering team, and the second-generation NSX will be produced exclusively at a dedicated facility in Ohio.
As with the original NSX, the second-generation car will be branded as an Acura in countries where the brand exists, such as North America. For the rest of the world, the new NSX will be sold through Honda dealerships with Honda badging.
The car will enter production in 2015 and go on sale in key markets next year.
Speaking to CarAdvice earlier this year, Honda Australia’s managing director, Stephen Collins, indicated that the car will hopefully arrive in Australia during 2016.
As for pricing, Honda’s Australian arm is likely to have a clearer picture around the end of 2015.
