Honda has released a new seven-second video of its upcoming NSX coupe, offering a first listen of the coupe's V6 hybrid powerplant.

The video follows the release of a single teaser image on the company's Twitter page, ahead of the car's cameo appearance at this weekend's Indy 200 race.

The video and image reveal the Acura-badged version of the new sports-car wrapped in a light-blue camouflage, obscuring the coupe's finer details.

Mechanical details are also still to come, although Honda has at last confirmed the production model will get the same mid-mounted V6 engine and Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-wheel-drive) system teased with last year's concept.

The SH-AWD system sees the V6 engine matched to a set of electric motors, one at each wheel for optimum traction and extra power.

"We're making great progress in delivering on the expectations we created a year ago, with advanced technology that will bring new levels of performance and a unique, dynamic experience to the exotic sports car market," said Acura's Mike Accavitti.

The all-important power figures haven't been revealed - but if the V6 is Honda's new 'Earth Dreams' engine, we can expect upwards of 230kW, and whatever boost the electric motors bring to the table.

Combine that with an aluminium and carbon-fibre body, and the new NSX's powertrain should deliver a 0-100km/h in the neighbourhood of 4.0 to 4.5 seconds.

The NSX will make its North American production debut as an Acura model in late 2014, with a global debut - under the Honda badge - to occur in the following months.
