The unreleased Acura NSX concept car, that features a twin-turbocharged engine and a three-motor, torque vectoring Sport Hybrid powertrain will be featured in Gran Turismo 6 (GT6), which was released today. The 'real driving simulator' available exclusively for the PlayStation 3 gives sports car enthusiasts their first opportunity to get behind the wheel of the next generation Acura NSX Concept.
"Whether in the virtual world of Gran Turismo today, or on real-world roads and racing circuits less than two years from now, the Acura NSX will be an incredibly innovative and thrilling ride that delivers something entirely new to the world of super sports cars," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of Auto Operations at American Honda Motor, Co., Inc. "The wait is over for NSX fans eager to get behind the wheel of the next Acura supercar, and they can rest assured the actual production car will be even more amazing than the in-game concept version."
Targeting next-generation supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance, the Acura NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected and twin-turbocharged V-6 engine mated to Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.
Global development of the NSX is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc., in Raymond, Ohio. The next-generation Acura sports car will be produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the Performance Manufacturing Center, now under construction in Marysville, Ohio. The NSX is expected to go on sale in 2015.
Gran Turismo 6 released today for the PS3, and features over 1200 cars alongside the NSX, and a slew of real-world racing tracks..
