Honda NSX to Return?

The new Avengers film is a hotbed for paparazzi activity, with their latest snapshots revealing a lot more than just on-set acting gaffes. What can be confirmed is that the legendary Honda NSX supercar is back. CEO Takanobu Ito recently hinted at the NSX’s revival, when he revealed: “we’re making progress with plans for an exotic sports car.” While the car is still a prototype, there are several details that have been confirmed. Honda is working on a VTEC V6 engine of between 3.5 to 3.7 liters, while the twin electric motor set-up will be powered by lithium-ion batteries and employ a plug-in recharge system for a small electric-only range. The Acura-branded car will also have a weight-saving aluminum body, and is set to go on sale by 2014 priced at a Nissan GT-R-rivaling £65,000 EUR (approximately $87,367 USD).
