NSX. Here are three letters that conjure up light-weight and high-performance. Acura repeatedly tried to revive the supercar over the last half-decade but every time had to back off. This time around, the essence of the NSX has been retained in this concept, with the added bonus of AWD.

Expected for the 2015 model year, the NSX will feature a mid mounted V6 coupled to a hybrid drivetrain. As one might expect, it won't be a regular hybrid system. It will be known as the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD or Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. The transmission will be a dual-clutch affair and electric motors will work the front wheels. Expect the car to be as fast as it looks. 

The Acura NSX Concept stole the show at last year's NAIAS in Detroit. Now, we have an evolution of the next-generation supercar's styling and design, including a first look at its interior.

The design concept is based on a "Human Support Cockpit" theme, which really aims to maximize the driving experience. The new Acura NSX Concept offers exceptional visibility, a race car-like driving position, and an intuitive "Simple Sports Interface" that minimizes interior clutter.

The dynamic proportions and wide stance remain unchanged, and Acura is still announcing a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. 

Mike Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations in the U.S., confirmed that the production Acura NSX is scheduled to go on sale within two years. It will be manufactured at a new production facility in Ohio.
