The Acura NSX Concept will fire up its twin-turbocharged engine and new three-motor Sport Hybrid powertrain in Gran Turismo 6 (GT6), which releases worldwide today. The 'real driving simulator' available exclusively for the PlayStation3 system gives sports car enthusiasts their first opportunity to get behind the wheel of the next generation Acura NSX Concept.

"Whether in the virtual world of Gran Turismo today, or on real-world roads and racing circuits less than two years from now, the Acura NSX will be an incredibly innovative and thrilling ride that delivers something entirely new to the world of super sports cars," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president at Honda. "The wait is over for NSX fans eager to get behind the wheel of the next Acura supercar, and they can rest assured the actual production car will be even more amazing than the in-game concept version."

Targeting next-generation supercar dynamic capabilities with advanced environmental performance, the Acura NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected and twin-turbocharged V-6 engine mated to Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.

Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is an all-new, three-motor high-performance hybrid system that combines torque vectoring all-wheel drive with advanced hybrid efficiency through the use of three electric motors - one motor integrated with the V-6 engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels, and two high-output electric motors driving the front wheels. The system enables instant delivery of negative or positive torque during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance unparalleled by current AWD systems. Acura defines this unique customer benefit of it's luxury performance vehicles as "the synergy between man and machine."

The next-generation Acura sports car will be produced at the state-of-the-art Performance Manufacturing Center, now under construction in Marysville, Ohio.

The all-new NSX is expected to go on sale in 2015.
