Acura NSX revised for 2013 NAIAS

Acura has presented this week at the Detroit Motor Show a slightly modified version of the superb NSX concept which previews a production model that should be out sometime in the next couple of years. The front fascia of the car is showing a significantly less pronounced beak-like grille in comparison to the original concept and it also seems to feature a new carbon fiber structure which is also present on the side vents of both front/rear bumpers. The front also shows clear turning signals, while at the back there’s an LED strip positioned in the center of the taillights. Also at the rear, Acura mounted a carbon fiber diffuser which hasn’t been painted.

This is the first time we get to see the interior cabin of the NSX which from the looks of it sports a rather minimalistic design without lots of controls and knobs. Acura used a combination of Alcantara and leather along with various carbon fiber inserts to spice up the cabin.

In terms of power, nothing has changed from the original concept as the updated version boasts the same V6 direct-injected, mid-mounted engine connected to the firm’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system that includes no less than three electric motors and a new dual clutch gearbox.

The production version will be manufactured at a brand new facility located in central Ohio, United States.
