Acura NSX Prototype Sounds NS-Sexy


Although it's not due until 2015, the new Acura NSX will be well worth the wait.

Since the end of last month when Acura first announced that it would debut a running NSX prototype at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car course, there’s been a fair amount of talk regarding the upcoming supercar. We know that it’ll be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 paired to the automaker’s Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system (SH-AWD). Basically, it consists of a new three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with hybrid efficiency.

This is done thanks to the use of three motors, one integrated with the V6 and the other two driving the front wheels. It’s quite complex, needless to say. But how does it sound? Listen for yourself in this new video from Acura. Along with the batch of new prototype images, the new NSX is shaping up to be quite something.
