The design stays remarkably true to the original concept styling, maintaining its low and wide stance with the dynamic and alluring proportions that are highlighted by clean, modern and simple surfacing, and edgy details that communicate supercar attitude and a high-tech feel.

'CONSISTENT WITH SPIRIT'

The car gives a glimpse at one potential direction for the next-generation NSX’s interior design. The interior package has outstanding visibility, a strong driving position and an intuitive “Simple Sports Interface” that minimises interior clutter, allowing the driver to focus on driving one of the most beautiful cars in the world..

"Consistent with the spirit of the original NSX," Honda says, "our designers have striven to deliver synergy between man and machine.

"With the aim of delivering a new sports-car experience that combines supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance, the NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injection V6 mated to Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system."

As previously announced, this NSX is being developed by a global R&D team led by designers and engineers at Honda R&D Americas in Los Angeles, California, and Raymond, Ohio. The new NSX will also be assembled at a new production facility in central Ohio.

The NSX Concept will also be displayed on the Honda stand at the 2013 Geneva auto show in March.
