Honda plans to reincarnate it iconic supercar named NSX. This model was first introduced in 1990 and it was equipped with a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, powered by an all-aluminum V6 petrol engine featuring Honda’s Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system. Named as Acura NSX for US market and as Honda NSX for European market, it was produced for almost 15 years, until production ended in 2005.

The first impressions were fantastic. The design of this new concept is so good that all of competitors such as Ferrari or McLaren were pretty much scared of new potential competitor.  Everyone was sure that Honda did great job.

Well, 550 horses promises a lot, so we are sure that this all new car will be a great alternative for much expensive cars such as McLaren or Ferrari. However, there is a big question mark – will this hybrid, full of high-tech electronic elements work good enough to satisfy needs of potential customers. More precisely, will 2015 Acura NSX offer something more than fuel economy compared to competitors such as petrol-powered Corvette, Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R. Will it be attractive like these cars.
