Acura's New NSX Prototype Teased, will Run a Lap Before Mid-Ohio Indy 200

In a way, Acura‘s handling of the presentation of the next generation NSX (to be badged as a Honda in certain regions where Acura is absent), reminds us of the excruciatingly long wait for GM’s fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro and Volt back in the late 2000s, when we all had reached a point of saying “be done with it…”.

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to utter those words for another two years, and that’s in addition to the 18 months that have already gone by since the release of the concept Mk1 at the 2012 Detroit motor show.

If you haven’t had enough already, then you will be pleased to know that after the red-hued NSX in China, Tony Stark’s NSX Roadster in the Iron Man movie, the NSX Concept Mk2 in Detroit, and probably another appearance that we don’t remember right now, you’ll be pleased to know that Acura will soon show a newer prototype version of its hybrid sports car.

“Acura fans, here’s your exclusive first look at the new NSX prototype,” Honda’s subsidiary said in a Facebook message. “See it take a lap August 4th before the Mid-Ohio Indy 200. Live at 3 p.m. EDT on NBC.”

Update: Acura just released a statement saying that the new NSX prototype “maintains the styling and proportions of the NSX Concept that debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit while packaging the production vehicle’s mid-mounted V-6 engine mated to Acura’s innovative new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.”
