We have seen the Acura NSX in it’s concept form for quite a while, but never get a chance to see an actual rolling version of the car. However, Acura has just posted an image of an NSX prototype on a racetrack.
As you can see from the tweet, Acura will be running the NSX prototype for a lap before the Indy 200. The prototype in the image is a mirror image of the Acura NSX we have seen on event floors except for the blacked-out lights and blue livery for the event.
This will most likely not be the last time we see the Acura NSX on the track. If you look back, Acura was very prominent in the Le Mans series, and there is no reason as to why Acura would not put the new NSX in the races.
The Acura NSX will be created in Ohio at a $70 million facility starting 2015. Powering the NSX will be a mid-mounted V6 engine that works with Acura’s ‘Sport Hybrid Super Handling’ AWD system.
