Honda reveals new all-electric NSX Pikes Peak racer

HONDA isn’t holding back in its assault on this year’s Pikes Peak Hill Climb event.

Along with the two NSX supercars we reported on last week, Acura (Honda’s luxury division in North America) will campaign an all-electric NSX-inspired concept in the 2016 Race to the Sky.

Driven by Tetsuya Yamano, the NSX EV Concept will compete in the Electric – Modified Class, and will have the same four-motor all-wheel-drive system that won last year’s Challenge Exhibition class. Except this time, the NSX EV Concept will be utilising three times the power.

Honda -NSX-front -side“We’ve been tuning the car for several weeks at Pikes and have advanced its performance significantly,” said Yamano.

“We’re honoured to be running at Pikes in this historical, anniversary year – an event respected by racing fans all over the world.”

By placing twin motor units on both axles, Honda has given the NSX the ability to achieve independent torque distribution to all four wheels. This will mean the car can turn harder and faster.
