Acura, Ford unveil new supercars at Detroit Auto Show
The new-vehicle unveilings at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit included the launch of two supercars --- the all-new Acura NSX and the Ford GT. Both the high-performance vehicles are being manufactured in the US.
Honda-owned Acura's new NSX is the latest incarnation of the 1990s supercar which most fans are apparently familiar with. The new Acura NSX boasts the inclusion of a horde of modern technologies, such as a twin-turbocharged V-6 engine which can supposedly deliver more than 550 horsepower.
The new Acura NSX is an all-wheel drive car with a hybrid drivetrain. The car uses a gasoline engine for driving the rear wheels, and electric motors for driving its front wheels. The car - to be priced at approximately $150,000 - will be manufactured at an Ohio plant; and is scheduled to hit the markets before the end of 2015.
The other newly-unveiled supercar, the Ford GT, is a next-generation version of a model which Ford sold in 2005 and 2006. The car boasts a sleek, aerodynamic design; and is equipped with a powerful twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 which is capable of delivering more than 600 horsepower.
The new Ford GT is scheduled to hit the assembly line in 2016; with the cost of the car having not yet been officially disclosed by Ford.
