It’s official this time! A new generation of the great Japanese supercar Honda/Acura NSX will make its debut, in concept form, at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show.
With this new NSX Honda makes a comeback to the world of super sport cars. And this being Honda, you can expect the new NSX to be packed with some very high-tech stuff including a sophisticated hybrid powertrain capable of delivering big power and low consumption.
Besides the NSX Acura will also debut a styling study of an all-new luxury compact sedan scheduled for launch in spring 2012 dubbed the ILX. This is a new compact sports sedan and introduces the brand to a new segment. It will feature three powertrains including Acura’s first-ever gas-electric hybrid.
The other major event for Acura at the 2012 NAIAS is unveiling a prototype of the 2013 RDX as the second generation of this five-seat SUV. But to be honest all these get kinda overshadowed by the big one, the NSX. We’ve been waiting for this car for years and years.
“Acura has a steady cadence of exciting new models coming to market and it will all begin in Detroit,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura sales and service. “From the all-new Acura ILX at the gateway of the lineup to the pinnacle of performance with the Acura NSX Concept, Acura vehicles are being created for luxury customers who aspire to the highest levels of quality and value, with beautiful styling and the right balance of technology, performance and environmental responsibility.”
