LEXINGTON, Ohio - Honda North America has revived the Acura NSX supercar and an image of the new prototype is out.

The NSX Concept model has been on display at various auto shows since the automaker announced its revival in 2012 but the car will take to a track at the Honda Indy 200 IndyCar Series race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio in the US.

The car will lap the race course before the main event starts on August 4 2013.

ANTICIPATED ARRIVAL

Global development of the next NSX, due to be launched in 2015, is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas in Raymond, Ohio.

It was announced in May 2013 that the next-generation NSX would be produced at a new Honda Performance Manufacturing Centre in nearby Marysville.

The prototype maintains the styling and proportions of the NSX Concept that debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit but carries the production vehicle’s mid-mounted V6 mated to Honda’s innovative new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.
