Honda says NSX will be priced like a 911 and bring 458 excitement - photos












Due in 2015

A Honda representative says the 2015 NSX will cost as much as a Porsche 911 and bring the level of excitement you get in a Ferrari 458 Italia.
In a brief interview given to Autocar, NSX development chief Ted Klaus mentioned the upcoming supercar's objective is to provide the "excitement of the 458 at the price of the 911." They believe it will be possible thanks to the implementation of hybrid technology.
He cautioned NSX fans that the vehicle's power figures won't be impressive but he assured "the qualities that you can't write down, such as driver involvement and pleasure, are the ones that will matter." Klaus said Honda used as benchmark models such as the Audi R8, McLaren MP4-12C and the Nissan GT-R, along with the aforementioned 458 and 911.
Scheduled to come out in 2015, the Acura NSX will be powered by two electric motors sending output to the front axle, along with a third motor built into the V6 engine to power the rear wheels via a new dual-clutch gearbox. The vehicle will be manufactured in Marysville and is being developed by Honda R&D Americas in Raymond, Ohio.

good to hear they designed the car at a US site. cause most of the market is probably the US and europe anyway. best to hear design ideas wat the locals have to say about a sports car driven in north america.

They always say stuff like

"the qualities that you can't write down, such as driver involvement and pleasure, are the ones that will matter."

When they are down on power.

hahahha!! so true.

when one boasts about handling, the car is usually slow for that segment.
