Honda line-up set to get a whole lot more interesting.

Honda is set to have a genuine excitement machine to offer customers when the NSX makes a return to local dealerships.

The supercar model, which disappeared from the Australian market nearly nine years ago, will return in the not too distant future according to Honda.

While pricing and a firm availability date are yet to be confirmed, the new model looks likely to boost the same powertrain as that shown in the NSX concept last year – that means a mid-mounted V6 engine/hybrid combo.

While nothing has yet been confirmed, the new NSX could utilize Honda’s SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system.

SH-AWD utilises a twin electric motor drive unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system and can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering.

Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins said the NSX will be a welcome addition to Australia’s line-up.

“We are absolutely thrilled to announce today that the NSX is coming to our shores. It was a revolution when it was first launched back in 1990 and this generation aims even higher.

“The NSX has a rich history around the world and diehard fans of this supercar have been waiting a long time for the new model to come to production. We can’t wait to offer this vehicle to our customers.”
