Honda NSX TMS-40

Tentative prices of the Honda NSX have been revealed for Europe. In the United Kingdom, the hybrid sports car has been listed at 130,000 pounds sterling (RM755k), while the German market will have to cough up 180,000 euros (RM815k) for it.

The prices mentioned are presumably for the base variants, sans any of the model’s typically pricey options. As such, and just like in the US, this makes the NSX the most expensive sports car in its class.

In the UK, for example, where the NSX is tentatively priced at 130k pounds sterling (RM755k), its competitors’ base prices are all cheaper. The Mercedes-AMG GT starts from just 98k pounds sterling (RM568k), while the BMW i8 and the Audi R8 also fall under the NSX’s mark at 105k pounds sterling (RM610k) and 120k pounds sterling (RM697k) respectively.

In its latest press materials, Honda has also confirmed that Europe is one of its lead export regions for the NSX. The hybrid sports car will be sold via a selected network of authorised dealers, with the order books set to open in April this year. Deliveries will commence later in September.

Produced exclusively at Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Centre in Marysville, Ohio, the Acura NSX is priced from an MSRP USD$156,000 (RM650k) in the US market. Fully loaded with all the available factory features and options, that figure climbs to a staggering USD$205,700 (RM856k).

To recap, the Honda NSX is powered by a Sport Hybrid Power Unit. The rear axle is driven by a 500 hp/550 Nm 3.5 litre DOHC twin-turbo V6 petrol engine and a 47 hp/148 Nm Direct Drive Motor. The front wheels are driven by two more motors, delivering 36 hp at each wheel and 146 Nm collectively. Total system output for the model is rated at 573 hp and 645 Nm.
