The new NSX hybrid will reinvent the auto making game as did the original NSX back in the mid 80’s. The new NSX hybrid model was officially unveiled earlier in the year at the Detroit Motor Show.
What sets the new NSX apart from others is the presence of a twin-turbo hybrid drivetrain. The drive train will comprise of mid-mounted petrol V6. Furthermore the new NSX hybrid will feature three electric motors. The motors will produce a horse power of 550 through all the four wheels.
The design of the new NSX hybrid is a cross between the Audi R8 and McLaren 650S. The aluminium and steel body gives the new NSX a bold and striking profile. Not to forget the original 1985 NS was called the world’s first all-aluminium supercar.
The 2015 models have similarly retained the best aspects of the original design. A bit of aggression is added through the addition of a low roofline and gaping side vents. The bumper consists of sharp blades and alluring LED lights. The overall design of the NSX hybrid has undeniably pushed the boundaries of Honda design language. Not many cars can match the road presence of the Honda NSX 2015.
According to Autoblog every element of the NSX exterior has been designed with high-speed stability in mind. Honda has revealed the body of the NSX was put to extensive testing at their development centre in Ohio. At the centre the bonnet vents, side air intakes and boot spoiler of the new NSX were further modified.
Honda stated the new NSX was developed using other advanced materials in addition to aluminium and ultra-high-strength steel. The other advanced material is specifically carbon fibres. The carbon fibres have been used to cover the floor of the car and make the NSX ultra-rigid.
The exterior of the NSX has been trimmed with bright red leather. The driver and passenger seats have been deemed firm with a comfortable feel. The instrument cluster of the NSX comes with an adaptable TFT display.
Features such as heating and climate controls can be optimized through the centre console. The pride of place has been given to the engine button which is placed in the centre of the Integrated Dynamics System dial control. Furthermore the new NSX has a launch mode.
The launch mode can enable the driver to start the car with lightning-fast speed. The new NSX is definitely a driver’s car since it provides the driver with the best possible experience. Ted Klaus is the chief engineer and global project leader at NSX development.
