Acura to Build New NSX "Supercar" in Ohio; Ready for Market Within Three Years

Acura has announced that its new NSX supercar will be manufactured in Ohio, developed in the U.S., and come to market within three years.

Most of the vehicle's details are still secret. However, it is known that the supercar will employ a lightweight chassis, a mid-mounted V-6 engine, and Acura's new Super Handling All Wheel Drive system.

Honda plans to produce the new NSX near its current auto production operations in central Ohio at a unique, advanced manufacturing operation. (The original Acura NSX was built at Honda plants in Japan from 1990 to 2005.)

"Honda associates are up to the challenge of producing the new NSX for global customers with a high degree of craftsmanship," said Hidenobu Iwata, head of Honda's North American manufacturing operations and president of Honda of America Mfg. "Honda associates in Ohio have been building high-quality Honda and Acura vehicles for nearly 30 years, so this news in many ways is a culmination of their determined efforts."
