The new Acura NSX is going to be revving it’s engines, virtually that is. The Acura NSX is going to be featured in the new Gran Turismo 6 video game which releases worldwide today. Gran Turismo known as the ‘real driving simulator’ will allow players to experience the Acura NSX concept firsthand on the PlayStation 3.
“The wait is over for NSX fans eager to get behind the wheel of the next Acura supercar, and they can rest assured the actual production car will be even more amazing than the in-game concept version.” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of Auto Operations at American Honda Motor, which own Acura.
The new Acura NSX is the next-generation supercar featuring dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance. The supercar will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected and twin-turbocharged V-6 engine mated to Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.
Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with advanced hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors – one motor integrated with the V-6 engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels, and two high-output electric motors driving the front wheels. The system enables instant delivery of negative or positive torque during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance unparalleled by current AWD systems. Acura defines this unique customer benefit of it’s luxury performance vehicles as “the synergy between man and machine.”
Global development of the Acura NSX is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc., in Raymond, Ohio. The next-generation Acura sports car will be produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the state-of-the-art Performance Manufacturing Center, now under construction in Marysville, Ohio. The all-new NSX is expected to go on sale in 2015.
