A near-production prototype of the Honda NSX has been spotted on the Nurburgring once more, where it has been tested out.
The Honda / Acura NSX is rumored to hit the market for quite some time now but the carmaker is taking its time with it as this has been announced to be a rival for Ferraris, McLarens, Lamborghinis and Porsches, amongst others. However, that doesn’t mean that we cannot see it in action, with its tires squeaking and its engine revving on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
The new Honda NSX has been officially presented to the public back in January this year, during the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit. The vehicle in question is expected to cost the same as a US-spec standard Audi R8, meaning approximately 115,000 USD, and its public reveal and full details on it are believed to be made at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, in the second half of November. The sports car will be competing against the McLaren 570S, the Ferrari 488 GTB, the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Audi R8 V10 Plus.
It will be packing a 3.5 liter turbocharged V6 engine under its hood, connected to a 9-speed automatic dual clutch transmission, which will be sending power to the SH AWD system. The internal combustion unit will be backed up by an electric motor, rear mounted between it and the gearbox and another two electric motors in the front, for dynamic torque vectoring. The total output is expected to stand at more than 600 HP.
