VIDEO: Twin-turbo V6 for 2015 Honda NSX

By Louis Cordony, 24 Jul 2014 News

Honda’s latest NSX mule has been filmed lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife, reaffirming the upcoming supercar will be powered by a twin-turbo engine

VIDEO: Twin-turbo V6 for 2015 Honda NSX

The latest mule of the second-generation NSX is missing the exciting bark of the Acura prototype that teased Indycar fans at the American Mid-Ohio Raceway in August 2013 (which you can listen to here).

Initially, the new NSX was thought to be powered by a naturally-aspirated V6 hybrid drivetrain, a theory supported by the raucous soundtrack of the Acura prototype. The latest video, however, is consistent with Honda’s display at last year's Tokyo Motor Show revealing the NSX will use a twin-turbocharged V6 engine.

The range-topping sportscar is still expected to go into production, its hybrid all-wheel drive system consisting of three electric motors, and a direct-injected mid-mounted petrol engine married to a dual-clutch transmission driving the rear wheels.

Australian customers are promised the NSX will make it to our shores, however further details on its arrival and a launch date have not yet been revealed by Honda Australia.
