Honda’s putting more and more into their performance segment and it’s finally paying off. The Honda NSX made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The supercar turned heads and we’re willing to bet it’ll have you stunned as well. Honda isn’t exactly shy about what their baby can do either.
“The new NSX has been specifically created to deliver a ‘new sports experience,’ challenging conventional beliefs about the supercar segment,” the company said.
The new supercar wields a twin turbocharged V6 engine attached to a nine speed dual clutch transmission. Fuel economy must be awful with that powerful of an engine, right? That’s where Honda’s green side comes in. Three electric motors put out additional power and performance as well as increase fuel economy.

The NSX is a hybrid all-wheel drive. Honda’s making the most of the hybrid part of that sentence. The supercar runs on a new system called Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All Wheel Drive. The new system features four different driving modes: quiet, sport, sport+, and track.
The Honda NSX supercar is made of carbon fiber flooring, aluminum, and high strength steel to keep weight at its lowest. Six piston front and four piston rear brake calipers with carbon ceramic discs bring the vehicle to a quick stop. The Honda NSX is ready to spar off with the Audi R8, Ferrari 458, and Porsche 911.
The NSX hits U.S. roadways this summer at a price tag around $150,000. Worth every penny.
