Honda to parade NSX supercar at IndyCar circuit

Another sneaky preview of the NSX supercar.

THOSE engineers at Honda keep teasing supercar lovers with hints of its new NSX hot shot.

And they have been at it again. Its US subsidiary has released a picture of a prototype of the new NSX with which it will take to the track at the Honda Indy 200 IndyCar Series.

Taking place on August 4 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, the prototype will lap the circuit ahead of the race proper, all decked out with custom graphics.

Global development of the NSX, due to be launched in 2015, is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Raymond, Ohio. Additionally, it was announced in May that the next-generation NSX supercar will be produced at the newly established Performance Manufacturing Centre in nearby Marysville.

The prototype model maintains the styling and proportions of the NSX Concept that debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, while packaging the production vehicle’s mid-mounted V6 engine mated to Honda’s innovative new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.
