Drive the Acura NSX supercar in Gran Turismo 6, two years before it hits the street

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been dying to drive the all-new Acura NSX supercar. Well, here’s your chance … virtually, that is.

The Acura NSX Concept is has debuted in Gran Turismo 6 (GT6), which went on sale on December 6th.

“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,” Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of Auto Operations at American Honda, said in a prepared statement.

For the uninitiated, the NSX Concept, designed entirely here in the U.S., is powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged V6, which is mated to Acura’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system, which is comprised of three electric motors, and an all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

While the V6 and one electric motor will power the rear wheels, the two remaining electric motors will power the front wheels. This allows for the front wheel motors to create positive and negative torque in a split second, improving acceleration, deceleration, and turning.

The full production NSX is slated to go on sale in 2015. So until then, this is your best and only way to drive the NSX.

“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,” Accavitti added.
