Acura NSX Concept to be Displayed at the 2013 Concours d’Elegance
The end of this week will bring to our attention one of the most awaited shows of the summer: the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. If you happen to be in Monterey County, California on August 18th you will have the chance to see the concept version of the upcoming Acura NSX sports car. Though we’ve already seen the concept several times, this is a great opportunity for anyone considering purchasing the NSX to get an idea of what it will look like in person.
August has been a pretty busy month for the NSX, as just a few days ago the first NSX prototype lapped the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. The NSX lapped the 2.4-mile winding road course with a member of the Ohio-based engineering development team behind the wheel.
The production version will be put on sale in 2015, and Acura will produce it in nearby Marysville, Ohio at the newly established, state-of-the-art Performance Manufacturing Center now under construction.

The production version NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V-6 engine mated to Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system. The latter is a three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with three electric motors. One of the motors is integrated with the V-6 engine and two motors drive the front wheels. This system sends negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance.
Rumors suggest that this output will deliver somewhere in the 400 horsepower area. As a result, the NSX will go from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds.
The production version will be put on sale towards the end of 2015. Prices will start at about $100k.
