Honda NSX will be back
After the next generation Honda NSX was laid to rest during the recession, Honda’s CEO, Takanobu Ito, has sparked new life into the legendary motor. This time though things will be slightly different. With pressure to maintain fuel efficiency and go ‘green’, Honda will be looking past immense power figures and focusing more on a competition stomping power to weight ratio.
[quote]You can’t depend on a high power output to call a car sporty anymore, the original NSX was about high power but also good driving performance, and today power-to-weight is what we have to focus on. The NSX was known for its aluminium body, so when we develop our new sportscar we don’t want to copy Ferrari for power, but to also chase efficiency as well. – Takanobu Ito[/quote]
No details have been given as to when we can expect to see the new NSX, but we’ll be watching this one very closely.
