The Acura NSX, in concept form, will debut in Gran Turismo 6 (GT6), which released worldwide on Friday.
The ‘real driving simulator’ available exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system gives sports car enthusiasts their first opportunity to get behind the wheel of the next generation Acura NSX Concept.
Targeting next-generation supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance, the Acura NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected and twin-turbocharged V-6 engine mated to Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.
Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with advanced hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors.
One motor is integrated with the V-6 engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels, and two high-output electric motors drive the front wheels.
According to the company, Acura defines the unique customer benefit of its luxury performance vehicles as “the synergy between man and machine.”
Global development of the NSX is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc., in Raymond, Ohio. The next-generation Acura sports car will be produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the Performance Manufacturing Center, now under construction in Marysville, Ohio. The all-new NSX is expected to go on sale in 2015.
