One of the best cars ever made by the Japanese automaker Honda, the NSX, is close to a spectacular revival and a new generation of it may hit the production line.
The Honda president and CEO, Takanodu Ito, is determined to revive the NSX, and in a world more concerned in saving trees than power to weigh ratio, the Japanese official may just be on to something.
“I spent part of my early career at Honda developing the NSX, and specifically the aluminum body… I really enjoyed that experience and learned so much, so it is my wish that Honda engineers have the experience of developing a sportscar like the NSX in the future. Within Honda, our engineers are already looking at developing such a car”, said Takanodu Ito, Honda’s president and CEO.
A new generation of the NSX was in the books and last year we should have seen it hitting the dealerships but the economic decline in 2008 has put a stop on these plans.
The Honda NSX or Acura NSX as it was known in the United States, was a sports car manufactured between 1990 and 2005, with a mid-engine and a rear-wheel drive layout, powered by an all-aluminum V6 petrol engine with Honda’s VTEC system (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control).
