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.”
After struggling for the first half of the 2014 Super GT season, teams running the new Honda NSX CONCEPT-GT have finally found success in Round 5 at Fuji Speedway. The No. 17 KEIHIN NSX CONCEPT-GT took pole position in qualifying, but it was the No. 18 Weider Modulo NSX CONCEPT-GT that went on to win Sunday’s GT500 race. Three NSX CONCEPT-GTs finished in the top 5, capturing the first, third, and fourth positions.

The NSX teams will need to regroup for Super GT Round 2 which takes places on May 4th at Fuji Speedway.
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.
