Honda Releases New Video On History Of The NSX

Honda sure is dedicated to its new NSX concept. Last Sunday, the automaker released its first ever Acura Super Bowl commercial for a concept that won't even hit the market for three years. Now it's put together an 8-minute video showcasing the model's past and present.

If you're an NSX fan, this is your lucky day. Honda's video is full of everything that you just have to love: lots of track footage of the original NSX, grinding engine notes, NSX racers, shots of the V-TEC engine, slow motion, commercial-like footage, driving footage of the new NSX concept, a closer look at the new NSX's powertrain, and more.

Before Jerry Seinfeld ever tried to needle his way to #1 buyer, Honda introduced the NSX concept at last month's Detroit Auto Show. Despite how much time that Honda has spent advertising and highlighting the new model, it has yet to give all the details - with three years left before production, it certainly doesn't have them finalized yet.

What we do know is that the car uses Honda's new SH-AWD hybrid, all-wheel drive powertrain, which pairs a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with two electric motors. The motors will drive the front wheels while the mid-mounted V-6 will take on rear-wheel responsibilities.

Rumors say the total output of the system will be around 400 horses. Four hundred horses is a little light for a true supercar (which Honda is calling the NSX) in today's environment, but Honda does plan to keep weight down so that the NSX will pry all the performance possible from its all-wheel set-up. We still think it'll fall short of true supercar numbers if the 400-hp rumor rings true, but it will definitely have the looks and technology to present a strong argument for going performance hybrid. The last NSX wasn't exactly all brute-power-hoarding supercar either, but its looks and performance put it in the conversation with other top cars of the day.

Without further ado, here's the video:
