Honda’s new NSX sports car will come one step closer to showroom reality in June, when the sleek concept makes a driving appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Still technically a prototype, the concept’s Goodwood climb will demonstrate the carmaker’s progress in getting the NSX’s petrol-electric hybrid powertrain ready for production.

That’s important for Australian fans, too, with Honda’s local arm confirming last year that a debut ‘down under’ is on the cards.

Honda last showcased the NSX at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, although an on-track video released in July offered a first listen to the coupe’s 230kW+ heart.

At the Goodwood festival, Honda will also give a nod to the NSX’s history, displaying a 3.0 1989 NSX - once driven by F1 legend and NSX development partner Ayrton Senna - along with a 2005 3.2 litre example.

Full details for the new NSX are still to come, but in the concept you’ll find a mid-mounted V6 engine and the electric motor-driven SH-AWD system.

Honda says we can expect a largely aluminium and carbon fibre body, and while it hasn’t confirmed figures, we can likely expect 0-100km/h times in the realm of 4.0 to 4.5 seconds.
