• Next Honda NSX will feature a four-wheel-drive hybrid drivetrain

Honda is previewing the new NSX supercar with the first concept version set to be released next month at the Detroit Auto Show. But before that happen, British magazine, AutoExpress, a few new details to pacify the masses. The new NSX, built as a Japanese rival to models like the Audi R8, will be a 400bhp four-wheel-drive hybrid model and will be heavily based on the concept car seen on the set of the new Avengers movie.

The hybrid system will combine a 3.5-liter V6 engine driving one axle with a pair of in-wheel electric motors driving the other ones. This system will offer a total of 400 HP and will propel the FWD NSX from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds. The model will be revealed as an Acura badge concept, but on markets like Europe, it will be sold as a Honda.

The biggest news offered by AutoExpress is that the NSX will also be offered as a roadster, but no other details about this model were provided.

Stay tuned! We’ll have more details on the new Honda/Acura NSX after its official debut in Detroit.

This car is really oozing with cool exterior looks! And I super love it. That orange body paint made this car look so luxurious and classy. Anyway, what about the updated article? Nothing new?

This car really is a masterpiece. From the way of how it looks on the outside and specially on its engine specification. Though it is a concept of Hybrid car, I really find it stunning and beautifully designed.

The concept of this car is good and I like the side mirrors. The engine is better. As day goes by, Honda makes into an improvised one.

A hybrid car? Do you really think cars like these worth the price? I mean sure the concepts are pretty stunning, but I think that it is a mess that you’ll always have to make sure that it is fully charged, right? But no offense meant, I love the design of it but that how they assembled it.
