The Honda NSX is a supercar like no other. Where the first example introduced everyday ability to a class of car known mostly for histrionics, the model’s second coming in 2015 – a whole decade after its predecessor went out of production – built on this by making the whole thing hybrid-powered.
A deeply complex system, it combines a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine with three electric motors, two of those operating on the front axle to make this a four-wheel-driven car. The gearbox is a nine-speed automatic.
Total outputs are 573bhp and 476lb ft, enough for a 191mph top speed and 0-62mph in sub three seconds, putting it firmly in the realm of a McLaren 570S or Audi R8. Though with torque vectoring between those front two motors, it shuffles its power around more cleverly than either of its comparatively conventional rivals.
