Acura today unveiled a revised NSX Concept previewing the design and interior of the next generation sportscar, expected in the market in the next two years. Acura unveiled a concept last year at the same venue and reopened the NSX chapter that was closed in 2005 when production of the last generation ceased.

This further evolution of the Acura NSX Concept design is remarkably true to the original concept styling. 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.

The Acura NSX Concept is based on the production model's underpinnings and preserves the low slung stance and the exterior proportions of last year's vehicle that got loads of positive praise. It aims to communicate the attitude of a supercar with a high-tech feel.

The 2013 Acura NSX Concept concept provides the first insight into the future car's interior that centers around a "Human Support Cockpit" focusing on "the synergy between man and machine." Visibility, a sporty driving position, and reducing clutter are the three priorities for Acura's interior designers and engineers.

Acura will launch an advanced powertrain package. It will use a direct-injected V-6 engine mated to Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system, as announced last year.

The SH-AWD system is a hybrid that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with hybrid efficiency using three motors - one coupled to the V6 engine, and two motors spinning the front wheels. A new dual-clutch transmission is developed to pair with the V6 engine.

Engineers are at work at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. located in Los Angeles, California, and Raymond, Ohio to get the car into production. The Japanese carmaker announced that the upcoming sportscar will roll out of a new facility in central Ohio.
