After completing a glorious period till 2005, this version of automobile suddenly got a break due to some painful reasons. Now, after so many years Honda is again planning to present its all new version of NSX, estimated to come out in the next three years.This 2014 Honda NSX is believed to come out with a Hybrid technology and also with an all wheel drive system.
The new all wheel drive system enabled NSX is expected to have a 3.6 liter V6 engine. There are some discussions going on which say that there will be two motors in the latest version of NSX. One will be electrically powered and the other will be run by gas. But it is not confirmed till date if the engine will have the capability to be operated with a single motor or not.
Earlier there were rumours that the upcoming NSX will come with a 4.5 liter V10 engine that will be capable of producing energy up to 500hp. But, the fact came out when Acura patented for a 3.6 liter engine. Later, it was also announced by Honda President and CEO Takanobu Ito. Now, the planned engine will be producing up to 400 Hp. Though, it is not confirmed till that, however, the engine of the next NSX should be the patented one only.

The best thing about the 2014 NSW is its classy and sporty look. The body of this supercar is made up of a carbon body which is covered with aluminum in the skeleton wheelbase. It gives a dashing look to the body. Other good things are definitely the 400 Hp engine which is capable of producing a very high speed in a fraction of seconds. The presence of a hybrid motor should also be mentioned here. Well, it is believed that there are much more features, especially in the interior that are yet to be revealed in the coming period.
What’s not so good?

However, looking toward the past record, it is obvious that the coming NSX should hold something very special so that it can overcome the past failures. The new model will face a big competition from other new versions of Lexus LF-A and Nissan GT-R.
Market experts opine that the past failures will surely affect the performance of the coming model of NSX. Also, the rumor that the engine would be 4.5 liter V10 engine and the actual engine of 3.6 liter V6 can make some kind of difference in the future.

It will be really interesting to see how the all wheel drive system will be incorporated in the new model. People are also waiting eagerly to see the application of modern technology in the interiors of this supercar.
Price and availability
If everything goes according to plan and also if the economy does not give anymore headache, then the new NSX should hit the road by 2014. The initial price is estimated to be around £65,000. If the price estimation goes correct, then it will surely give a tough competition to all its competitors.
The Bottom line
