Default Honda confirms NSX concept for Detroit

Honda confirms NSX concept for Detroit - BBC Top Gear

Thats really a good news! Will it retain some bits of the Senna tuned chasis?

I hope Honda makes the new NSX a bit more interesting than the old one. I'm sure it was a great car and everything but it lacked that passion that you expect when you are buying a car in this class.

This NSX (HSC) concept was showcased at the 2005 - Melbourne International show, I so wished they produced this.
According to me this concept captures the lines of the original NSX in a modern way. Loved it!

Looks like Tony Stark ditched his R8s for the NSX

Finally Honda management are doing the right things....I believe the pictures are from the 3rd ironman movie.I hope the exact car goes into production.

btw the back sort of looks like AM one-77.

I liked the newer NSX concept more than this. This already looks outdated. At that time it was good. Not anymore.

The current one looks awesome. YMMV

Great looking thing! But is it only me or the tyres look puny for a sports car! I guess my car's 225 cross-section rubber look wider than this!!! Sorry for such a crude comparison.

I expect the new NSX to be powered by a turbocharged/supercharged 4-pot or 6-pot mill, in all probability. It should be good for power figures in the 200-300 horsepower region. For such power, and a pretty sorted chassis, 225-235 sections should be just about adequate.

The Type-R sibling should come shod with larger wheels wearing wider rubber, though.

Have a look at Toyota's new sports-car. The FT-86. It looks like it has narrow-tyres too.

Sports cars like the Audi TT, the Mercedes SLK and even the Porsche Boxster don't come fitted with large tyres, generally.

EDIT: This Acura looks like it's still in the concept/prototype stage. It may not have a very powerful engine powering it at the moment, so it would not require large tyres to harness the power. Perhaps the production version would come with larger tyres?

At the time of the original NSX, Honda was a dominant force in Formula 1 racing. It had everything going for it, Ayrton Senna and all. Most importantly, Honda then, were aligned to their founders vision of creating cars that will actually offer a desirable driving experience rather than produce products that would serve the purpose of practical transportation (signifying mass appeal).

But now?

it will be a turbocharged/supercharged v6 and will cost around $100k. I hope it will have better rubber for the power and price.

FT-86 has just 197hp and has 'Prius' tires. You can check out both the size. NSX will have close to 400hp if the rumor mill is anything to go by. Anything less than 350 will disappoint many including me. It will have hybrid system so expect some power from it to. Most v6's makes 350 hp now a days easily, so expecting 400 from NSX is quite reasonable imho
