Be surprised.  It’s the latest Acura NSX.

In a world where the Tesla Model S has taken the electric car business by storm with tremendous range, acceleration, and luxury and the BMW i8 has brought supercar-like performance out of a hybrid powertrain, the Acura NSX was sold out before it’s actual release.

Is it really that good?

We can find out for ourselves.

The production version of the highly anticipated Acura NSX supercar, will make its world debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show on Jan. 12, 2015. The model will reflect the production design and specifications of the mid-engine Acura supercar that is slated to launch in 2015. To celebrate the impending debut of NSX, Acura released a 30-second teaser video that gives an early glimpse of the production car and the sound of its three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit.

"“The next-generation NSX will deliver a ‘new sports experience’ true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergized brand.”“After three years of intensive development work we are excited to reveal this next-generation supercar—the Acura NSX—to the world,” said Ted Klaus, chief engineer and global project leader over NSX development. “We’ve developed a human-centered supercar that responds to the will of the driver and that builds upon the NSX heritage.”"
