Acura did indeed bring a new version of the NSX super car to the Detroit Motor Show, but it wasn’t the production version we were expecting to see. It is an evolution of the first concept car. The main purpose of this presentation was to reveal the car’s interior.

The NSX boasts an interior, which as we mentioned before, looks kind of like the cabin of Lexus LFA. It has a similar tall center console with a large screen at the top, a chiseled and sporty steering wheel, and tons of leather adorning pretty much everything you see and touch.  Carbon fiber and Alcantara are among other exotic materials you find here.

They say the interior is founded on a “Human Support Cockpit” theme, a strong expression of Acura’s product direction focused on “the synergy between man and machine.” What that means in plain English is proper driving position, excellent visibility, and optimum ergonomics.

Performance-wise, the new NSX is the same as before. It features a Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with advanced hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors – one motor integrated with the V-6 engine and two motors driving the front wheels – along with an all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

“This further evolution of the Acura NSX Concept design is remarkably true to the original concept styling,” said Mike Accavitti, vice president of national marketing operations. “We’re making great progress in delivering on the expectations we created a year ago, with advanced technology that will bring new levels of performance and a unique, dynamic experience to the exotic sports car market.”
