Honda NSX Will Take on the Hill of Goodwood
The Goodwood Festival of Speed always attracts some of the year’s finest supercars to take to its famous hill climb. This year is no different, as Honda has announced that it will not only be in attendance at the festival, it’s also booking its ticket to run the new NSX supercar on what is arguably the world’s most famous hillclimb, providing the capacity crowd in attendance an up-close look at the new supercar.
The NSX’s attendance at Goodwood will harken back to the days when its predecessor was a fixture at the Festival of Speed, including back in 1993 when 10 NSX models were showcased at the inaugural Goodwood festival.
It seems appropriate now that over 20 years later, the NSX will return at Goodwood in in its latest incarnation, and one that will definitely hold court and be one of the star attractions at this year’s festival.
That’s how the NSX rolls these days.

It may still be a few years from now, but after years of teasing and concept reveals, the Honda NSX will finally be launched as a full-fledged sports car.
Very little in the way of details have been revealed about the sports car, but what’s already out of the bag is the powertrain details, which has been announced as a combination of a mid-mounted, direct-injected V-6 engine and Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system. The Sport Hybrid SH-AWD uses a trio of electric motors – one mated to the engine and two driving the front wheels – to help boost the V-6 engine’s performance and overall vehicle stability.
Performance numbers weren’t announced but don’t be surprised if the production model hits anywhere between 400-500 horsepower when its good and ready to pounce on the world’s streets.
