Rebirth of an Icon: Next Generation Acura NSX Unveiled
Acura takes the wraps off its highly anticipated next-generation NSX supercar, designed to deliver a groundbreaking “New Sports eXperience”
Jan 12, 2015 – DETROIT
Twenty-five years after the debut of the original, paradigm-shifting NSX supercar, Acura revealed the production version of its highly anticipated successor—the next-generation Acura NSX, developed and produced in the U.S.—to the world’s auto media at the 2015 North American International Auto Show today. The production model, in a scintillating NSX Red finish, took the stage with a growl from its twin-turbocharged engine.
The next generation NSX showcases the production styling, design and specifications of Acura’s mid-engine sports hybrid supercar, and Acura announced key details of the all-new vehicle’s design and performance. The company will begin accepting custom orders for the new NSX starting in the summer, with customer deliveries expected later in the year.
Watch the two intros used for the global unveiling of the Next Generation Acura NSX at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. The short clips of Ayrton Senna that were seen at the show for some reason were omitted in this version. The test driver in the second video with the prototype is F1/Indy Car driver Takuma Sato.
In an article featuring NSX exterior designer Michelle Christensen, LA Times has posted an early glimpse of the production NSX. The two carefully composed photos reveal some new exterior features without giving away too much ahead of the official NSX debut tomorrow at the North American International Auto Show.

Acura NSX Production Model to Make World Debut at 2015 North American International Auto Show

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.”
Motor Authority has posted some spy shots of the “new” 2016 Acura NSX Prototype that was recently seen testing at the Nürburgring. These photos were taken on the surrounding roads outside of the track. There are some minor changes from the last prototype, and if you head over to motorauthority.com they have both cars posted in the gallery for comparison.

It seems the 2016 Acura/Honda NSX Prototype has returned to the Green Hell for more testing in a video posted today. The vehicle’s plate numbers and a few other minor differences suggest this is indeed separate footage from the batch that was previously posted in July.
Recent reports state that the second generation Acura NSX is on track for a 2015 launch in North America.
