BANG! Like lightning, it appears, electricity crackling through its wheels as it speeds around the Nürburgring and makes the good noises in the process. It’s the new Acura NSX, a car we like! But is it... more than that?


Spotted on the ‘Ring are not one but TWO mysterious NSXes, both with some kind of sensors on their engine covers. What could they be? They both sound louder than the regular NSX, that black one in particular.

We had heard about a year ago that Honda was contemplating making a faster, more hardcore version of the new hybrid supercar, maybe even an all-electric one (which this decidedly is not.) But the automaker has announced nothing official yet.

I’ve found the stock NSX’s 573 horses and trick hybrid system to be plenty quick, but like all of us, more is always better. I’d love to see Honda explore more with this platform—more power, more speed, less weight, maybe even rear-wheel drive. Could this be it? Who can say, but it might mean we have some good news to look forward to.
