Honda NSX to tackle Pikes Peak

But that’s not all. Acura is also bringing out what it calls “an NSX-inspired prototype vehicle” in the hill climb’s Electric Modified class. Honda did something similar with a CR-Z based prototype last year, and it won the Challenge Exhibition class.

The legendary has seen a renaissance somewhat in the last few years, with Peugeot – who battled furiously with Audi in the 1980s for the race record – using nine-time World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb to lower the time of the now fully-paved contest to 8m13.878sec.

The road-going Honda NSX will arrive in Australia this November, with an estimated starting price of around $300,000.

The production-based NSX racecars share the same mid-mounted twin-turbo V6 engine mated to a 9-speed dual clutch transmission and electric motor, plus two electric motors powering the front wheels.
