Honda has commenced the production of its Right Hand Drive (RHD) NSX supercar. This report is confirmed as Honda has begun accepting bookings for NSX in Australia. The RHD NSX will be manufactured at Honda's Performance Manufacturing Centre in Marysville, Ohio.
Previously, the NSX from Honda was exclusive to Left Hand Drive markets. With the introduction of Right Hand Drive NSX, Honda could introduce its supercar in new markets. This could open the opportunity to introduce Honda NSX as a flagship product in India.
Powering Honda NSX is a 3.5-litre V6, twin-turbo engine, which is coupled with three electric motors. This engine is mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox and produces 572.62bhp and 646Nm of torque. Honda's NSX accelerates from 0-100km/h in a matter of 2.9 seconds.
Only ten Honda NSX supercars are hand built every day. Each engine takes up roughly six hours to hand assemble, after which it is tested for approximately 200 kilometres. The very first Right Hand Drive Honda NSX will be out on the road by early 2017.
