Honda’s latest product, the NSX hybrid supercar is all set for launch in 2015. And since there are still a couple of months to go, Honda has decided to debut the NSX prototype at the 2014 Goodwood Festival Of Speed that will take place from 27 to 29 June. The NSX will be there as a participant and the visitors will get to see and hear it when it goes for a run on the world’s most famous hillclimb.
The NSX has been associated with the Goodwood Festival Of Speed for long. When the first Festival was organized, as many as 10 NSX were showcased. The original NSX was launched back in 1990 and by the time it participated at the Goodwood Festival, it had already proved itself. It was an exotic machine that delivered strong performance and handling without making any compromises on the usability part.
This year, after more than two decades, Honda is making a comeback with the all new NSX that features an innovative Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system. To add a pinch of excitement, the new NSX will be joined by a 2005 3.2-litre NSX and a 1989 3.0-litre NSX on the famous hillclimb.
Honda’s is expecting to take the supercar market by storm with the next generation NSX. Honda’s confidence lies in the ultra-modern looks, breathtaking performance and an innovative 3-motor hybrid powertrain of the next gen NSX.
The hybrid powertrain of the car is comprised of a twin-turbocharged, direct-injected, mid-mounted V6 engine and a Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system. The latter is an innovative system which makes use of 3 electric motors and features advanced hybrid efficiency and torque vectoring AWD. The power developed by the powertrain is transmitted to the rear wheels via an all new dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
The Goodwood Festival Of Speed has always been exciting enough and this year the excitement bar will certainly be raised with the all new NSX in action.
