Acura NSX Concept On Display At 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

– Acura Brand Becomes Official Sponsor of World's Premier Collector Car Show –

08/12/2013 - TORRANCE, Calif. The Acura NSX Concept will make a special appearance on the Concept Lawn at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance®, August 18, 2013, heralding the announcement of the Acura brand as an Official Sponsor of the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance®.

The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is more than one of the world's preeminent exhibitions of luxury automobiles; it is a celebration of style and refinement that is the perfect showcase for the Acura NSX Concept," said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of Automobile Operations at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. We are thrilled to align the Acura Brand with this prestigious event that is the ultimate celebration of the automobile."

Global development of a production model based on the Acura NSX Concept is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc., in Raymond, Ohio. The next-generation Acura sports car will be produced in nearby Marysville, Ohio at the newly established, state-of-the-art Performance Manufacturing Center now under construction. The NSX is slated to go on sale in 2015.

Targeting next-generation supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance, Acura announced in 2012 that the NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V-6 engine mated to Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.

Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® is an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with advanced hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors – one motor integrated with the V-6 engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels, and two motors driving the front wheels. The system enables instant delivery of negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance unparalleled by current AWD systems.

On August 4, a testing prototype version of the Acura NSX lapped the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio prior to the running of the Honda Indy 200 race showcasing the steady progress being made toward the launch of Acura's next-generation, mid-engine supercar. The Acura NSX Prototype lapped the 2.4-mile winding road course, driven by a member of the Ohio-based engineering development team. The NSX Prototype featured custom blue graphics that speak to Acura's intention to go racing with the new NSX. The NSX Prototype shares the same basic styling as the NSX Concept that will be on display at Pebble Beach.
