Acura NSX Concept lands in Gran Turismo 6

Gran Turismo has a long history of using real cars in the game to add all the realism possible. The cars are available from just about every US domestic and foreign carmaker out there. One of the new cars in GT6 that isn't available yet in the real world is the Acura NSX concept.

Acura has announced that the first place for the public to get behind the wheel of the concept sports car is in the GT6 game. GT6 is billed as "the real driving simulator" and Sony spends lots of time developing the game to have real driving characteristics.

"Whether in the virtual world of Gran Turismo today, or on real-world roads and racing circuits less than two years from now, the Acura NSX will be an incredibly innovative and thrilling ride that delivers something entirely new to the world of super sports cars," saidMike Accavitti, senior vice president of Auto Operations at American Honda Motor, Co., Inc. "The wait is over for NSX fans eager to get behind the wheel of the next Acura supercar, and they can rest assured the actual production car will be even more amazing than the in-game concept version."

The Acura NSX concept has a mid-engine design with a direct-injected turbo V6 engine and Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD hybrid system. The hybrid system uses three electric motors with one for each front wheel and one in the transmission.
