2015 Acura NSX prototype hits the track [video]
2015 Acura NSX prototype – low res – 25.7.2013
Will be shown on August 4th
The Acura NSX is inching closer to production as the company has released a Vine of the model undergoing testing.
The latest clip doesn’t reveal much but it suggests Acura is gearing up for a massive social media campaign ahead of the prototype’s debut at the Mid-Ohio Indy 200 on August 4th.
We should learn more this weekend but the prototype clearly resembles the updated NSX concept which debuted at the North American International Motor Show earlier this year. Despite the similarities, we can see the prototype features new headlights, larger mirrors, restyled air intakes and prominent “#AcuraNSX” badging.
Acura has been coy on powertrain details but previously confirmed the model will have a mid-mounted V6 engine and a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system with two electric motors that power the front wheels and another motor that is integrated into a dual-clutch transmission.
