Watch Acura NSX Prototype's Test Runs at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

We’re still waiting for footage of the new Acura NSX prototype’s quick lap around the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, that was completed moments ago ahead of the Honda Indy 200 (3:30 PM EST) race, but just to get you into the mood, we have two fresh videos of the Japanese coupe running around the circuit.

The first one was filmed by YouTube user cboardman40 who captured a video of Acura performing a test lap on the Ohio course on Friday, while the second one is the full-length promo with all the bits teased in previous days.

After today’s official lap of the 2.4-mile long circuit by a member of Honda’s Ohio-based engineering development team, Ted Klaus, chief engineer of Honda R&D Americas stated the following:

“With leadership from our R&D and manufacturing teams here in Ohio, we are developing a next generation sports car that will be equally at home on the street and on the race track, so it is natural for us to showcase the prototype vehicle here at Mid-Ohio. It is exciting for us to see the prototype running on track, reflecting the great progress we’re making toward the 2015 global launch of the NSX, as we engineer a new sports-car experience for customers around the world.”

Like the previous concepts, the running prototype of the 2015 NSX is powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system that includes three-electric motors.
