As well as launching a new Civic Type R (Page 60) and returning to F1 as an engine builder, Honda will revive its Honda NSX 2015. But the new supercar will be a hybrid. A mid-mounted direct-injection V6 will drive the rear wheels through a twin-clutch gearbox, while three electric motors – two on the front axle and one built into the gearbox – give the car four-wheel drive and a combined power output of over 400bhp. The motors will also have a torque vectoring function, ensuring agile handling.
