Honda NSX prototype to participate at Goodwood Festival hillclimb, production model coming in 2015

The new Honda NSX supercar has been shown as a concept at various Motor Shows and the prototype will be shown again at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June, when it takes on the world’s most famous hillclimb.

This is a rare opportunity to see and hear the all-new version of a NSX supercar, powered by an innovative three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system.

The new NSX prototype will be joined on the famous hillclimb by a 1989 3.0-litre NSX, once driven by Ayrton Senna, and a 2005 3.2-litre model, illustrating the original model’s rich history and development.

The new NSX is powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected next-generation longitudinally placed twin-turbo V6 engine mated to Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system using three electric motors – one motor integrated with the V6 engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels, and two motors driving the front wheels.

The new NSX will enter production next year and Honda is already taking pre-orders with a deposit of £5,000.
