At last, spy photos have been taken of the new 2G Honda/Acura NSX being tested at the Nurburgring, under heavy camouflage. Many have been saying that the development schedule of the new NSX have slipped as it was originally supposed to make a hill run at the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed event last month. As a result, the car's debut which is supposed to be in Detroit Motor Show beginning of next year is also in doubt. Nevertheless, we still believe the new NSX will debut next year, maybe towards the end of the year.
According to the latest insider infor, Honda has scrapped their original plan of using a transverse MR platform in favor of a longitudinal layout with a bespoke 90-degree twin-turbo V6. This powerplant is paired with an electric SH-AWD system and a dual clutch transmission, and the latest rumors peg the output of this system to total more than 600hp. The price however is expected to be at Ferrari/Porsche mad levels.
