MARKHAM, ON, July 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Acura released an image of a
prototype NSX supercar today, announcing that the running prototype
will take to the racetrack just prior to the Honda Indy 200 IndyCar
race at Mid-Ohio in Lexington, Ohio. The NSX prototype, in custom
livery, will lap the road course in advance of the race on August 4,
2013, to be broadcast live by NBC Sports Network starting at 3:00 p.m.
Global development of the NSX, slated for launch in 2015, is being led
by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Raymond, Ohio.
Additionally, it was announced in May that the next-generation Acura
supercar will be produced at a newly established Performance
Manufacturing Center in nearby Marysville, Ohio.
The prototype model maintains the styling and proportions of the NSX
Concept that debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show
in Detroit while packaging the production vehicle's mid-mounted V-6
engine mated to Acura's innovative new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD
(Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.
