After years of anticipating the resurrection of the first supercar to feature an all-aluminum monocoque, Acura has set a date for the official unveiling of the new NSX. In press release issued today and a very short but adrenaline filled teaser video, Honda announced that the Acura NSX production model will be introduced Jan. 12 in Detroit, Michigan, at the annual North American International Auto Show.
“The next-generation NSX will deliver a ‘new sports car experience’ true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX,” said Acura Division Senior Vice President and General Manager Mike Accavitti in the release. “The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergized brand.”
The original NSX was produced from 1990 to 2005, the concept for its successor was Acura’s show piece at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. As the release describes, Takanobu Ito, President and CEO of Honda Motor Co., Ltd., predicted that a production model would be complete within three years. As we all know, Honda isn’t exactly known for being unreliable, and exactly three years later, we will see the fulfillment of this promise.
