2012 Honda NSX Concept

Since the NSX will be headed Stateside as an Acura, we got the Acura NSX Concept when the Detroit Auto Show opened its doors. Other markets like Europe and Japan, however, will be given a Honda to serve as their NSX base, so the Geneva Motor Show will find itself with a Honda NSX Concept to preview their production supercar.

The Honda NSX Concept will feature the same design language and the same technology as the Acura NSX Concept. It will be powered by the company’s next generation VTEC 3.5-liter V6 with direct-injection engine which is then combined with a dual clutch transmission and a range of new technologies, including the innovative Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system. This system combines a unique 2 Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system that allows the car to instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering. Honda hasn’t released any details on the final output of this setup, but rumors say it will go up to about 400 HP, or just enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.

The production Honda NSX will be unveiled in the next three years.

UPDATE 03/12/2012: Honda has unveiled a very cool promo video for their NSX Concept which was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Enjoy!

I guess this concept is weaker than what I presumed.

TopSpeed’s sketches look mostly alike; this seems to be derived from their perception of a certain Acura model.

The NSX concept is great and innovative, but the fact that Acura and Honda’s NSX Models are the same is not a good idea. Which car will be unique? They look like the same, but I must say that Acura has stronger appearance and very appealing. 

I found it oddly resembling some certain car a lot, and that’s when it hit me that they truly have plenty of similar features. If this were released, they’re probably going to be like Subaru and Toyota, except it wasn’t really planned.

They really are poor in enhancing the acceleration of the car, because the original NSX is also weak in terms of that, but the maximum speed is okay to me.

Tuning companies need to help this one on its acceleration.

How could people presume easily? If it were me, I’d wait for the actual appearance and performance first.

This concept outdoes all the other ones. I’ve always viewed Honda as one of the automotive companies which produces innovations with tamer images, but this made me think otherwise.

@albe_winston: I think I’ve replied to you at the other article, LOL.

This is powerful, but the acceleration time is kind of slow. Honda needs to improve on that.

It looks cool on the video. I hope they can provide more videos of this especially the test drives.

I’m attracted to the aggressive rims. They maximize the challenges on the streets.

I like the concept of this NSX, it looks cool and sporty because of its smooth curves and edges. With its 400HP, it is indeed a monster of the streets.

Did Honda merge with Acura? It seems like they often have the same concepts!

It’s not really fast compared to others, but its design compensates for its speed! I really liked the top and the headlamps.

Did Acura get their NSX Roadster concept from this? To me, the only difference they have is the roof since Acura made their NSX Roadster convertible.

Very astonishing! This car really for real man, it looks so strong and masculine. It even tells how black is beautiful, after all it made it appear so aggressive.

I hope that everything that was stated here will be the same way as it was produced. This concept seems to be great. I personally find it as high-class design.
