Honda exec confirms that the production version of the NSX supercar will be unveiled at Detroit

The full production version of the Honda NSX supercar will make its world debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January, Auto Express has learned.

A top exec for Honda Brazil told us at the Sao Paulo Motor Show, that the ‘real’ NSX will be shown in Detroit after the show car has finished its duties here in Sao Paulo and then at the Tokyo show in November. Our source also revealed that the styling will remain ‘identical’ to the model you can see here on the show stand.

Initially badged as an Acura – Honda’s luxury American brand – the NSX will wear a Honda badge on its nose when it goes on sale in the UK later in 2013.

Details of the powertrain are yet to be confirmed, but it will use a version of the SH-AWD system. Expect a 3.5-litre petrol V6 driving the rear wheels, plus two electric motors, producing a total of 400bhp.
