The last time we heard anything about the next generation of Honda’s New Sportscar eXperimental, it was that the upcoming Japanese super car was put on indefinite hold just like the Aston Lagonda. Well there is some good news, it appears that the car is back on the track, except this time it won’t be known as an NSX, instead Honda will be calling it the Super Hybrid Sports.
The 21st century super car will be powered by the next generation of Honda’s “valve less throttle” version of the 3.5 Liter V6 coupled with a hybrid synergy drive system from the next generation Acura Legend and RL. The gas/electric power plant will produce a maximum output of around 450 HP PS which would put it in line with the Toyota FT-HS.
The upcoming NSX successor will also feature a super handling all wheel drive system bolted to the future super car’s all aluminum platform and feature a rear transaxle that combines the gearbox and final drive in one package just like the other super vehicle from the land of the rising sun, the R35 Nissan GT-R. With the return of a high performance machine from Honda as well as the upcoming Lexus LF-A and Godzilla from Nissan, all that is left is for Mazda to hurry up with the new RX-7 and the Japanese super cars that did battle back in the early 1990s will be back in full swing.
