Honda NSX Prototype to Make Debut at Goodwood

The brand-new Honda NSX supercar prototype will make its debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The ground-breaking car, powered by a three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system, with one motor integrated with the V6 engine for the rear wheels and two motors driving the front wheels, is set to enter production in 2015.

The NSX has a strong link to the Festival of Speed, with 10 NSX machines showcased at the first Festival in 1993, with the car having already been known as a ground-breaking car following its 1990 launch.

The 10 NSX, driven by UK journalists, made a strong impression on visitors to the first Festival, with Honda hoping for the same kind of impression over twenty years later with the unveiling of its flagship supercar for the first time in Europe.

The new prototype will be joined on the hillclimb by a 1989 3.0-litre NSX, as driven by Ayrton Senna, and a 2005 3.2-litre, showing the marque’s rich history and development.
