Honda has begun recruiting both personnel and suppliers for its NSX hybrid supercar, which will be built in the United States. The NSX is a revival of the old NSX that was co-developed from a driver’s perspective, with legendary Formula One driver Ayrton Senna.
Over 100 highly skilled workers are being recruited for the job to build Honda’s next own legend. Having recently announced its return to F1, albeit in a limited way, Honda seems once again to be finding its racing/ motorsport mojo. The NSX could be the perfect halo car.
While we don’t yet have official information on its powertrain, we do know the car will be run through a V6 engine mounted mid-section. We also know that output will exceed 280kW, which does not sound like much if you compare it to other super hybrids like the BMW i8.
The new NSX is scheduled to go on sale in 2015 and South Africa could get itself on the list of countries that benefit from a few examples, depending on demand and right-hand-drive availability.
