Honda NSX reborn as a hybrid

Will still go like stink

Top three mobile application threats

Detroit Motor Show

Don't let the Acura badges fool you, what you are looking at here is the new Honda NSX, the long overdue replacement for what many people regard as the finest handling road car ever made.

Honda next-gen NSX

Under the striking bodywork sits a mid-mounted V-6 VTEC engine and what Honda is calling a Sport Hybrid SH-AWD - Super Handling All-Wheel Drive - hybrid system.

The system uses three electric motors: one to deliver extra power to the rear wheels when you put your foot down, and two smaller ones attached to the front wheels.

As well as giving the NSX on-demand four wheel drive, the two front electric motors can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering.

Honda says this will deliver handling performance unmatched by previous all-wheel drive systems.

No details were offered about speed, acceleration or power outputs but it's probably safe to assume it will go like stink.

The original NSX, in which the late, great Ayrton Senna had a hand in development, ceased production in 2005. The new model will go on sale in 2015. ®
