Honda announced that the long-waited NSX replacement won’t be launched this year at Tokyo Motor Show. Honda give no info about when the car will be launched, but for sure won’t happen before 2010.
If Honda will launch the NSX at its home show in Tokyo, and as there’s no Tokyo show that year, the real launch date could be as late as October 2011.
It is expected that Honda will use its Formula 1 know-how and will develop a 5.5 liter high-rev V10 producing around 550 bhp. Most likely it will also feature Honda’s VCM (Variable Cylinder Management) technology, allowing the engine to run on only 5 cylinders, boosting fuel efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions.
