Honda Begins Pre-Orders For NSX Hybrid Supercar

One of the most awaited supercars is no doubt the 2016 NSX (or Acura NSX, depending on the market). The NSX has been up and down so many times, that at some point we had no idea what to believe anymore, but once the 2012 NSX Concept was unveiled it became pretty clear that the company was serious about getting the name back on the market.

It looks like people were very impressed by the NSX, as Honda has received an unprecedented demand for the supercar. This made the company to open a pre-order bank for the NSX and any customer depositing a total of £5,000 ($7,600 at the current exchange rates) can be among the first customers to get it. Not until 2015, unfortunately.

Honda already received a total of 25 deposits for the NSX, so maybe it will rethink its decision of offering the NSX as a limited edition.

The production version of the NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V-6 engine mated to Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. It will also utilize a unique 2 Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system, so the new hybrid all-wheel-drive system can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering.

Rumors suggest the NSX will deliver a total of 400 horsepower and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds.

The NSX will debut sometime in 2015 and will carry a price tag of more than $150,000.
