Acura's reborn NSX supercar will officially begin production in 2015 at a new production facility in Ohio.
In light of the new supercars recently launched from the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren, Honda wants to assure us that its reborn NSX is not far behind. The Japanese automaker has confirmed that NSX production is slated to begin in 2015 at a new $70 million Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. While the confirmation that it’ll be built in Ohio is nothing new, what’s interesting to point out is the huge investment being made to produce a single model.
The 184,000-square-foot facility will employ around 100 highly skilled technicians who will be trained specifically to build the high-tech supercar. As a quick recap, the new NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted V6 with direct-injection paired to a dual-clutch transmission. Power will be sent to all four wheels via a new Sport Hybrid Super Handling AWD system equipped with an electric motor that connects directly to the engine along with two electric motors moving the front wheels. Deposits are already being accepted from interested buyers and the final price will likely be somewhere above that of the Nissan GT-R.
