[VIDEO] Honda NSX prototype caught on the Ring image
Another prototype of the infamous Honda NSX has been spotted on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
The Nurburgring officials may have banned track records by the end of the year but this has no meaning for Honda which is continuing the development of its new NSX generation on the famous track. The clip posted below is showing us a prototype in action and despite being unveiled just a few months back, it is still wearing some camouflage on its body. You may want to turn the volume up before scrolling down and clicking the play button because you have to hear its mid-mounted engine.
The Honda NSX has been officially presented to the public at the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit. The model has also made its European debut, a couple of months later, in Geneva, and it has a completely new design, with a 3D formed A-pillar, a world’s first. The sports car is making use of a multi-material space frame which has been made using the aluminum and high-strength steel. Power to it is being provided by a 3.5 liter V6 petrol engine, rated at 550 HP, backed up by no less than 3 electric motors, two of them mounted on the front and the last one fitted to the rear, between the V6 and the new 9-speed automatic transmission. This is forming the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system as power is being sent to both axles. No performance details have been announced at this time.
