Honda’s coming NSX has been spied testing again this week in what is likely to be the final leg of the new coupe’s prototype testing.
Shown here in its final skin beneath a thin layer of camouflage, the new NSX will clearly not stray far from its concept styling.
It appears there will be small changes however, including a second lower grille in the front bumper, and two new vents in the bonnet.
New skirts can be seen along the profile, and a new exhaust design is also visible at the rear.
A convertible version of the new NSX is also expected down the road, previewed by the roadster that appeared in 2012 and starred briefly in the Avengers film.
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.
Striking such a balance could make the NSX something of a performance bargain, although some may be deterred by the idea of paying Audi money for a Honda.
This begs the question: if the new NSX can match Ferrari's 458 on the track, just how much should buyers expect to get it for?
Honda Australia boss Stephen Collins last year confirmed that a local launch for the new NSX is on the cards.
“We are absolutely thrilled to announce today that the NSX is coming to our shores," Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins, said.
"It was a revolution when it was first launched back in 1990 and this generation aims even higher.”
“The NSX has a rich history around the world and diehard fans of this supercar have been waiting a long time for the new model to come to production.”
"We can’t wait to offer this vehicle to our customers.”
It may not be here immediately, however. Honda is coy on local launch timing, but a spokesperson has told TMR that the NSX should arrive within the next two years.
