Autoweek found out what the base price of the NSX will be.

They was told the same as the Audi R8 base model.

$115,000 USD

Is the base RWD-only or does it include the SH-SH-AWD?

Let me correct Autoweek.

$115,000 is for the 6sp manuel

The base NSX would be a great deal if it gets what the Japanese mags say what its engine will be!

V6 Turbo 400ps-450ps

70-80kw electric motor in the trans

plus the two electric motors upfront 20-30kw each

For $115,000 USD

That would put it in the 500hp range but with alot of torque to get it off the line in a hurry!

400 to 450 horsepower out of a V6 turbo seems like a huge waste unless it's a smaller V6 like a 3.0L. I don't think Nissan has the engine building chops that Honda has and the GTR is making 545 horsepower out of their ICE engine now (granted it's a 3.8L). The 911 Turbo is at 530 as well. I would think that if Honda is building a twin turbo V6 that they would at least go for 500 hp from the gas engine.

I just feel like if you're going to take the weight, drivability, complexity, and heat dissipation penalties with forced induction, you might as well get big power in return.

Will it get an electro turbo? Then the power rating may be quite ok as a few heavy pieces could be left out.

I expect by debut the engine will in the low 500 horsepower range and with the electric motors the total power will be in the high 500 to low 600 horsepower range in the base model.

The turbo is the future with the new US MPG fleet laws/EURO Carbon Laws and you can't beat a very good tune turbo engine's powerband.

Wow. So it really does seem they will go for the masses and then spec up further versions.
Cool.

Well, the LPL was making noises that they'd learned their lessons about letting things stagnate and die.

We shall see.
