Acura NSX Production Model to Make World Debut at 2015 North American International Auto Show
Dec 17, 2014 - TORRANCE, Calif.
The production version of the highly anticipated Acura NSX supercar, successor to the legendary original NSX, will make its world debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show on Jan. 12, 2015. The model will reflect the production design and specifications of the mid-engine Acura supercar that is slated to launch in 2015. To celebrate the impending debut of NSX, Acura released a 30-second teaser video that gives an early glimpse of the production car and the sound of its three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit. View the video on Acura’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/Acura.
“The next-generation NSX will deliver a ‘new sports experience’ true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergized brand.”

This year’s LA Auto Show Design Challenge theme asks the question: “How Will Cars Interact with Us In 2029?” Honda USA’s entry, the Acura Human/Machine Interface(HMI) Concept explores the possibilities of shape-shifting surfaces controlled by the passenger through mental and physical connections.
2029: Technology and human beings have converged to allow a deeper level of interactivity between human and machine. Implants are common – they allow humans to connect with objects and modify them mentally and physically; they enable an enhanced experience when it comes to comfort and efficiency. This allows technology not only to cater to the needs of a passenger, but also to anticipate them. The future interior of the autonomous Acura car will be a sandbox for creativity and usability, giving our vehicles a greater role in passengers’ everyday lives. Our concept is comprised of an exterior and interior shell, connected through a modular adjustable mesh that can flex and shape to custom-fit a passenger’s needs. The interior is also constructed out of a fabric-like material that can be changed by simply pushing or pulling on surfaces that can accommodate one or two passengers. With the help of biometrics and after repeated use, the vehicle will learn the preferences of each user and anticipate their needs by changing its shape.
