Video: 2016 Acura NSX Sounds So Sexy Playing in the Rain

Posted on by  

A few days ago, Acura unveiled an image of the NSX prototype that will lap the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course just before the Honda Indy 200 on August 4th. When that image hit the Interwebz, we promised you that a video would follow, but we had no clue just how quickly Acura would release this video.

Apparently, Acura just couldn’t wait, as it revealed a sweet teaser video of the NSX in action on a wet track. Not only does this video let us see the NSX using the rain-soaked course for some sweet drifting, but we also get an earful of the sweet sound of its mid-mounted V-6 engine.

In case you forgot, the NSX will combine a mid-mounted V-6 engine with Acura’s new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system for a total output of about 400 horsepower.

From just this short video, we can tell that this new sports car is certainly worthy of its placement as the successor to one of Ayrton Senna’s favorites.
