The NSX prototype lapped the 2.4-mile winding road course, driven by a member of the Ohio-based engineering development team. The NSX prototype sported custom graphics that speak the intention to go racing with the new NSX.

"With leadership from our R&D and manufacturing teams here in Ohio, we are developing a next generation sports car that will be equally at home on the street and on the race track, so it is natural for us to showcase the prototype vehicle here at Mid-Ohio," said Ted Klaus, chief engineer of Honda R&D Americas, Inc. "It is exciting for us to see the prototype running on track, reflecting the great progress we're making toward the 2015 global launch of the NSX as we engineer a new sports-car experience for customers around the world."

Targeting next-generation supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance, it was announced in 2012 that the NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V-6 engine mated to Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.

Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with advanced hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors - one motor integrated with the V-6 engine and all-new Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels and two independent motors driving the front wheels. The system enables instant delivery of negative and positive torque to the front wheels during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance unparalleled to current AWD systems.

Global development of the NSX is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Raymond, Ohio. The next-generation sports car will be produced in nearby Marysville, Ohio, using domestic and globally-sourced parts, at the newly established, state-of-the-art Performance Manufacturing Center, now under construction.
