VIDEO: Honda NSX First Drive by Autocar

Is the Honda NSX the perfect everyday supercar?

We’ve waited long enough for Honda to release a new NSX. When the original NSX was launched, it was more thrilling than most of its rivals on both road and track.

Not only was one of the most engaging cars to drive, it set new standards for daily usability among supercars. Can the new NSX – after an absence from the market of a decade – pick up where its predecessor left off?

Today, the new NSX has a 3.5-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 in its middle, augmented by an electric motor, while a pair of electric motors at the front make it four wheel drive, increasing traction and, Honda says, aiding the handling balance. We find out if that gives it enough speed and poise to outdo rivals like the Audi R8, Ferrari 488 GTB and Porsche 911 Turbo.
