NSX Prototype set for debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Goodwood Festival of Speed

Official release from Honda UK Newsroom:

19 March 2014

- Innovative hybrid all-wheel drive supercar to enter production in 2015
- Festival of Speed will showcase NSX’s advanced technologies, performance and handling

The ground-breaking NSX supercar, powered by an innovative three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, and set for launch in 2015, will take centre stage at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed (27-29 June) when it takes on the world’s most famous hillclimb in front of a capacity crowd. The Festival will provide visitors with a rare opportunity to see and hear the all-new version of a supercar whose forebears gained iconic status around the world.

The NSX has a long-standing relationship with the Festival of Speed. In 1993, at the time of the first Festival, a fleet of 10 NSX were showcased at Goodwood. Launched in 1990, the original NSX was already known as a ground-breaking exotic car, delivering super performance and handling, without compromise in usability and ergonomics. Driven by UK journalists, the 10 NSX made a thrilling impression on visitors to the first Festival of Speed. More than two decades have passed and the new NSX is making its return to Goodwood. It will again open the door for a new era of the Super Sports model and Honda sees the Festival as the perfect event to demonstrate its flagship supercar for the first time in Europe.

NSX CONCEPT-GT

This past weekend Suzuka Circuit’s Motorsports Fan Appreciation Day brought an epic collection of cars to the event, and NSX fans would not be denied. Honda of course brought its newest racing machine the NSX CONCEPT-GT, and put it alongside two iconic NSXs: the Team Kunimitsu NSX – winner of the 1995 Le Mans GT2 class, and the Castrol MUGEN NSX – winner of the 2000 JGTC GT500 class. The trio of NSXs lapping the circuit created some pretty good photo ops seen in the gallery above.

Also included are photos of the NSX CONCEPT-GT with its Super GT Japanese rivals, Lexus’ RC F and Nissan’s GT-R.
