you can now order the new NSX Supercar with a £5,000 deposit
If you are looking to be amongst the first people to get their hands on the new Honda NSX, then you could be in with a chance as Honda have opened the orders books. Potential UK owners will need to put down a £5,000 deposit with an expected delivery date in 2015.
Honda has already taken 20 deposits with anyone having seen or driven the final production version of the NSX, and prices have yet to have been confirmed.
What we do know is that the new Honda NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine with Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. It will feature a 2 Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system so the new hybrid all-wheel-drive system can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering, which Honda promised will deliver handling performance unmatched by previous AWD systems.
It is set to be built in Ohio in the USA and is currently still under development at Honda’s R&D centre located in Los Angeles, California.
When the previous NSX went on sale in 1990, Honda took 25 pre-orders for the UK and went on to sell 290 during its fifteen year life span in the UK and 18,000 worldwide.Published 18 April 2013
