    Default NSX Prototype Crash and Burn on the Ring

    De nieuwe Honda NSX leeft nog! Alhoewel... / Spyshots / Autowereld.com

    English Tranlation (pics in link)

    Possibly it's the desired complex powertrain that the successor of the illustrious Honda NSX out rapidly approaching mid 90s wait. Similarly, the chances are very present that same technology has been the cause of this almost completely burnt prototype. But hey, it happens to the best if we are to believe, Ferrari and Lamborghini so let's here but no further attention to it. It's mostly good news that Honda in public again seriously shows interest in the long-awaited successor to its super sports cars of yesteryear. At the Nürburgring still, which is always a promising sign. Complex powertrain Like the original - where racing legend Ayrton Senna still worked on it - is the new NSX a midship sports a V6 which plays the leading role. But only the engine does not stop there. The car also gets its power from two electric motors and among all those companies through a vending machine ensures the transmission to the rear and the front wheels. To how much power this complex leads powertrain is actually still guessing, but some sources are convinced that somewhere between 400 and 500 hp. On the one hand it must also, like the new Honda NSX dyed his slain rival, the (next) Nissan GT-R, plucky opposition can offer. In 2015 we hope to know how things really stand. Finally! click here or on the tag 'photo galleries' to admire how this prototype of the Honda NSX looked before the fire.

    That's what happens when you get your electric motors from a vending machine. Will the Japaense ever learn that not everything can be sold in a vending machine?
