Honda NSX Concept GT takes on Suzuka

Mon, 03 Mar 2014

Honda hinted at the second coming of the NSX sports car in 2011, before bringing a concept to the Detroit auto show in January of 2012. Not more than two months later, the company said it will also go racing with the hybrid all-wheel-drive supercar. This has finally come to pass: On Monday, Honda uploaded a video to its Japanese YouTube channel, showing the Honda NSX Concept-GT -- the racing version -- in action at the Suzuka Circuit.

The street version of the NSX will be built at Honda’s Marysville, Ohio plant. Honda told us it is envisioning the car as a midengine exotic, which will be raced, and cost somewhere in the range of the Porsche 911.

Most recently, the Acura NSX concept lapped Mid-Ohio Raceway and joined the ranks of playable cars in the “Gran Turismo 6” racing simulator.

The NSX will get the company’s Super Handling All Wheel Drive, a V6 driving the rear wheels, two electric motors driving the fronts, and a dual-clutch transmission.

Despite seemingly never-ending delays, we expect to see the street car within two years.
