One video of this car.

ON VIDEO: Honda/Acura NSX Caught Powering Round Nurburgring Again

Quote:
The revival of the Japanese supercars has been fantastic, models such as the Toyota LF-A and Nissan GT-R have been a breath of fresh air on the industry and soon the Honda/Acura NSX will get in on the party. Unlike the previous mid-engined NSX, this prototype is running a front-mid engine, with its powerplant placed well behind the front wheels to ensure excellent weight distribution. This should also allow the new NSX to offer 2+2 cabin accommodation, broadening its appeal – particularly in the USA.
Under the hood we can definitely hear the bite of a V10, there are however questions over whether Honda will turbo charge this engine or perhaps leave it in its naturally aspirated form. Honda’s not as obsessed as many by big horsepower outputs, but even so an output of 450 hp seems likely. Should such an engine be fitted to the sort of lightweight body as the previous NSX, the performance would be exceptional.
Not expected until 2009, Honda’s supercar is aiming to compete against rivals like Porsche’s 911 Turbo, the Ferrari F430 and the Lamborghini Gallardo.

By the looks of the body kit and lights(especially the LED tail lamps) it is surely going to be very sexy. I can imagine it in black, white and red......yummy! Another beauty from Honda.

Just checked out the video! Man that high revving engine sounds sweet and amazing stability from the chasis.

It’s another shock announcement from Honda, and a massive blow for performance car fans everywhere. Only two weeks after dramatically pulling the plug on its Formula one team, the Japanese car maker has revealed its hotly-anticipated NSX supercar has been canned.

Too bad, but like the article says, hope they can get back to the NSX project in a few years. Who knows, this might actually help them improve the car even further.

Well the high end cars might not be affected by the economic downturn. They might be looking for the right time and maybe they are not ready yet. They should think about the price tag too. 150k for a Japanese supercar sounds like a setback. They should keep the price competitive to GTR.

Its bad news. Hope it will encourage auto companies to develop good, efficient cars which are not a burden on majority of people. Bring on the plug-in hybrids everyone. The chinese BYD has become the first to introduce one already. A Plug-In Hybrid Goes on Sale, in China - Wheels Blog - NYTimes.com
