Honda has taken the covers off its latest NSX concept car at the Detroit show..

Essentially a lightly tweaked version of the NSX concept shown at last year’s Detroit show, the new car gets a proper interior for the first time. The cabin looks near production ready, Although is expected to be tweaked as the NSX is further developed. A styling highlight are the big carbonfibre struts which run from the dash into the centre console.

The NSX will not go into production for at least two years, and will be built in the US, where most of the car’s development will also be carried out. The car will use a mid-mounted V6 coupled to an electric motor to drive the rear wheels, and electric motors driving the front wheels to give four-wheel drive. Honda's Super Active All-Wheel Drive system will also be fitted.

This vehicle can't beat it's global rivals; neither in terms of performance nor on sales chart! It's only a proud thing for Japanese people!

Which are the global rivals of NSX? I doubt its gonna be in the supercar bracket. If in a sportscar range this may be good as well.

The NSX has always been a very very capable car. The best part about it that it doesnt cost the sky to own really. And being a Honda/Acura reliability is assured. I love the looks of the concept. Hope the production car looks similar

Ofcourse, it's not a supercar, but it's a sportscar & has tonns of alternatives like porche boxter, porche carrera gt, lotus elise, noble m600 (Though priced sky-high), chevy corvette, dodge viper, subaru impreza & many in-house compititors like Mitsubishi evoX, Nissan 370Z & upcoming Toyota Supra! & one may compare it with some american muscles like mustang, charger & camaro, as they fall in same price bracket! definitely, It can't compare with ferraries & Lambos!

It's still a concept car. How do you know what its price will be or which cars it will rival? And even if you did know that, how can you possibly know that it won't be better than them? The previous NSX, while not the most powerful car, gained a reputation as a giant-slayer thanks to its neutral handling characteristics.

The 'alternatives' you have listed fall across a wide range of prices (Evo X - Rs 50 lakh, Boxster - Rs 80 lakh, Noble M600 - Rs 4 crore, Carrera GT - Rs 14 crore!). Ferraris and Lamborghinis - all current production models - fit within this range as well. So where exactly does the NSX, which won't be produced for another two years, fit?

If you're comparing performance, we don't know the outputs of the engine/electric motors yet, and although the handling has been proven in a front-engined Honda Accord, who knows how it will be in a mid-engined sports car.

Are you saying this because it's a Honda? Remember, Nissan makes the GT-R ;-)

First of all, it's engine figures are declared! It's 3.5-litre V6 with 400bhp with addition of the electric motors which will most probably add about 100bhp to the powertrain, bringing the new NSX to 500bhp overall.& when it comes to supercars from japan no one accepts them as easily as Lambos or Ferraris! So it's going to be a clever billionaire's (which itself a niche now-a-days! :D ) hotwheezs & he'll check all this options while buying it! & if we compare it with Audi R8 4.2 FSI quattro which comes nearest to it when compared spec-wise, costs arround 1.34 crores! & being a honda, it should be atleast 30% less expensive than a german & with this assumption we can predict it's price to be arround 90 lakhs! & when a person buys a niche car worth 90 lakhs he'll definitely look at cheaper alternatives & if he's buying a off-the track expensive product, in 20-30% cases he must be trying to look diffrent from the crowd & noble M600 is a awsome product which is rare too! & My dear friend Noble M600 & carrera gt costs 3,30,000$ & 4,40,000$, which roughly translates into 1,78,03,500 & 2,37,38,000 Indian Rupee! & A person who can afford a 90 lakh worth sportscar can definitely afford 2-3 crore worth car!
