Acura to develop a baby NSX

Acura is planning to develop a smaller version of the NSX which is expected to get a four-cylinder petrol engine under its hood once it will hit the market over the next 4 or 5 years.

Even if the car manufacturer isn’t saying anything official on this subject just yet, trying to keep the model into the shadows, the guys at Motor Trend are saying that the “Small NSX”, which apparently is its internal name, will look like a smaller version of the NSX and it’s expected to get Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Power to the model will be provided by a 2.4 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine and the “baby” NSX might hit the market in 2016 or 2017. Prices are expected to be set between 50,000 and 60,000 USD.

As a small reminder, the Acura NSX is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine, sending its power to one of the axles, while a pair of electric motors will “move” the other axle. The model has a four-wheel drive and a hybrid layout, with a total output of 400 horsepower. The final production version of the new NSX, with the Acura and Honda badges on it, is expected to debut in 2013. You can watch the Acura NSX at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show below. Enjoy!
