The new prototype will be joined on the famous hill climb by a 1989 3.0-litre NSX, once driven by Ayrton Senna himself, and a 2005 3.2-litre, illustrating the original model’s rich history and development.

Honda's stunning all-new NSX will rewrite the rulebook for high performance cars when it enters production next year with an innovative new three-motor hybrid powertrain, exotic looks and breathtaking performance.

The car will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected next-generation longitudinally placed twin-turbo V6 engine mated to Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. 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 V6 engine and its all-new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) driving the rear wheels, and two motors driving the front wheels. The system enables instant delivery of negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance unparalleled by current AWD systems.

For anyone who loves the sight, the sound and the smell of racing and supercars, Goodwood's three-day Festival is one of the greatest shows and the perfect platform for Honda to put the NSX prototype through its paces.
