Another prototype of the new Honda NSX generation has been caught on camera while continuing its extensive development regime.
Almost a year ago, a prototype of the Honda NSX has caught fire while being tested out on the Nurburgring. An official statement explaining the incident hasn’t been released but since then, Honda has officially pulled the wraps off the new NSX. Despite this, the supercar is still continuing its development and another prototype has been caught on the famous German track recently, wearing some mild camouflage on its body.
The brand new Honda NSX is coming with the world’s first 3D formed A-pillar, which has been made using high strength steel. This means good visibility and class-leading rigidity. The model has a multi-material space frame which is making use of the aluminum and high-strength steel. Under its hood we can find a twin turbo 3.5 V6 petrol burner, which is capable of putting 550 HP. The internal combustion unit is being backed up by no less than three electric motors, out of which have been mounted on the front, for torque vectoring, and another one fitted to the rear, between the V6 unit and the new 9-speed automatic transmission. Power is being sent to both axles and this is called the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. Honda hasn’t released any more performance specifications on the new NSX, in its production form, but chances are we will see it once again, this year, at Frankfurt.
