After three long years and lots of patience, the 2016 Acura NSX production model will show face at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Jan. 12. To celebrate the approaching debut, Acura released a 30-second teaser video of the production model and its looks just as good as it sounds.
Expected to launch in late 2015, the NSX supercar is based on the original NSX that was discontinued in 2005. The 2016 NSX supercar will feature a three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit.
“The next-generation NSX will deliver a ‘new sports experience’ true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergized brand.”
The NSX concept model made its first appearance at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. With design led by the Acura Design Studio in Torrance, Calif., the NSX supercar is being developed by a global team of engineers led by Acura’s North American R&D operations in Raymond, Ohio.
“After three years of intensive development work we are excited to reveal this next-generation supercar—the Acura NSX—to the world,” said Ted Klaus, chief engineer and global project leader over NSX development. “We’ve developed a human-centered supercar that responds to the will of the driver and that builds upon the NSX heritage.”
