You're looking at the first Acura NSX to publicly hit U.S. soil since December 2005, when the last of its kind left Honda's Suzuka facility and made its way to North American customers. This isn't a complete surprise. Although Honda has been hinting at a reversal since 2005, the NSX concept made an appearance on the set of the The Avengers and in front of select dealers and reporters in various stages of development. What we see today at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit is truly a beautiful sight for die-hard NSX fans. Powered by a direct-injection VTEC V-6 engine that is paired with a Sport Hybrid all-wheel drive system, the NSX concept features both high-tech innovation and clean lines within an overall design that is on pace for its 2014 launch. Wrapped within a lightweight shell, two electric motors transfer power through a new bilateral adjustable torque control system that is able to regulate power to the wheels during turns and provide the type of acceleration expected of today's supercars. While details have yet to be released on its overall efficiency, weight or power, Honda knows that on-lookers will continue to be distracted by the idea that they finally have a new NSX to look forward to.via: Autoblog
