Staying true to the announcement, the Acura NSX Prototype made its track debut in Ohio. The track test happened prior the Honda Indy200 IndyCar Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. A member of the company’s engineering development team drove the car in the 3.9km racetrack.
The mid-engine prototype gets its power from a direct-injected V6 engine paired with the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. The latter is a new high-performance hybrid system designed for the all-wheel drive to improve torque and efficiency. The car also features a new dual-clutch transmission.
NBC Sports Network supposedly had a live broadcast of this track debut. However, a video in Acura's Youtube page surfaced showing the same NSX Prototype in a blue Acura livery. It can mean that we might be able to see the new NSX participating in racing events any time soon.
