Honda NSX switched to turbo power halfway through development

The 2017 Honda NSX is powered by a twin-turbo V6 coupled to advanced electric motors, everyone knows that now. What you might not know is that the project Honda had envisioned as the second-generation NSX was originally conceived with a naturally-aspirated engine. When unveiled more than four years ago at the 2012 Detroit motor show, the NSX was designed to carry a naturally-aspirated 3.5-litre engine in unison with its hybrid drive system.

2017 Honda NSX aerodynamics detailed

Now that the first production Honda NSX has been ushered out the door of its specialist factory in Ohio, Honda has detailed some of the work it has put into optimising airflow around its hybrid supercar. Dubbed the 'total airflow management' concept by Honda, the goal for the aerodynamicists and designers working on the NSX was to simultaneously optimise downforce, reduce drag, maximise cooling, and figure out how best to get rid of excess heat.
