Honda NSX Concept (VIDEO)
One of the biggest draws of the 2012 Detroit auto show is the new Honda NSX concept car. Developed in tandem by Honda’s design studios in California and Japan, the new NSX is a svelte-looking supercar with an exciting purpose: it heralds Honda’s new supercar.
After years of will-they, won’t-they delays, concepts and U-turns, this time Honda is adamant – it really is replacing the original NSX. Even better news, the chief exec confirmed it would be here within three years.
The new NSX has big boots to fill: the 1980s original had a major impact on the supercar arena, bringing ease of use and less fearful road manners to the upper echelons of the sports car market. You could well argue that today’s Audi R8 and Ferrari 458 Italia wouldn’t be so biddable if the NSX hadn’t existed.
