Honda developed a well-liked sports vehicle at the beginning of the 1990's that was sold under its Acura brand in the U.S. until the vehicle was discontinued at the end of the 20th century. Here at Castle Honda we are excited to inform you that the Honda NSX has returned.
"We need a halo car," Honda's design manager Yoshikazu Kigoshi told UK TV series TopGear, "and this is a decision that's come from Ito-san down. A new S2000 is a difficult car for us to do, because of its front-engined, rear-drive platform. But we are definitely looking at the EV-ster and a new NSX."1
Why wouldn't the Japanese automaker give sports vehicles another try? Honda manufactures the fuel efficient 2012 Honda CR-Z hybrid, in its second year at Castle Honda located at 6900 Dempster St in Morton Groove, IL.
Kigoshi confirmed NSX will get the auto maker's new SH-AWD torque vectoring system. This set up uses independent electric motors on its rear wheels to optimize cornering.
EV-ster will use a new platform, and be offered in either gas or purely electric variants. EV-ster will replace a traditional steering wheel with TLS: 'twin lever steering' that is typically seen on F1 race cars. Stay tuned for more on this development.
