Long-awaited NSX has two names

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Acura last week un­veiled the street-ready Acura NSX at Detroit. It will be sold as the Acura NSX in Amer­ica and Honda NSX in Europe, but fans who have been wait­ing 23 years for the lat­est model don’t care, they just want to drive this Ohio-built Ja­panese su­per­car. The NSX body uti­lizes a space frame de­sign—an in­ter­nal frame con­structed of alu­minum, ul­tra-high strength steel and other ad­vanced ma­te­ri­als. An­chored by a car­bon fiber floor, tor­sional and bend­ing forces are taken up en­tirely by this ul­tra-rigid struc­ture which also uses ad­vanced join­ing tech­nolo­gies.
