New Honda NSX on Gran Turismo

GT gives new concept a proper digital welcome, with a little help from the old one…

It's been a talking point for many years, it was Ayrton Senna's supercar of choice, and it's finally come among us once more. Welcome back, NSX.

Unveiled as a concept - and under the US Acura brand - the new sportscar has finally shown us something at the Detroit motor show. And what we saw was good, as Paul Horrell reported.

A high-revving, mid-mounted V6 feeding the rear wheels, two little electric motors feeding the fronts, regenerative braking, good weight distribution, low weight: all concepts that meet with Approval at TG HQ.

It's still three years off, but thankfully, you can already see it on the move. Sort of. Gran Turismo has just released this natty little video of the old timer marshalling the new boy on the block using GT5's digital landscapes.

It's not a playable car, mind, just a free ‘movie presentation' of the rather attractive new supercar.

Have a watch of the video below, and check out the rest of our Detroit coverage here

Now share it...
