The second generation Honda NSX, marketed as Acura NSX in North America, is a 2-seater, mid-engined hybrid sports car manufactured by Honda in the United States. It succeeds the original NSX that was produced in Japan from 1990 to 2005.
In April 2011, Automobile magazine reported that Honda was developing a new sports car to be a successor to the NSX. It reported that the CEO of Honda said the car would be exhilarating to drive but also environmentally friendly. Expected was that the vehicle would incorporate an electric drivetrain to give the petrol engine a boost. Back in late 2010, Motor Trend reported that Honda was looking into a mid-engine hybrid electric sports car to be an NSX successor. In December 2011, Acura announced that they would show the next generation NSX in concept form at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. On January 9, 2012, Acura unveiled the 2012 Acura NSX Concept.
On December 27, 2014, Honda announced that its second-generation NSX would debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. In December 2015, the North American pricing was announced as commencing from US$156,000 (~€137,400) for the base specification, to US$205,000 (~€108,600) fully equipped. At the same time, Honda announced the European debut for the NSX at the 85th Geneva Motor Show.
Mechanically, the second generation NSX represents a significant departure from the first generation since it features a twin-turbocharged 75-degree DOHC (dual overhead camshaft) 3.5L V6 engine producing 500 bhp (373 kW), mated to a three electric motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system and a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). The total output is 573 bhp (427 kW). The 2015 NSX accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 307 km/h (191 mph). Structurally, the body utilizes a space frame design, which is made from aluminum, ultra-high strength steel, and other rigid and lightweight materials, some of which are the world's first applications.
