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.
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.
