It looks like the long and at times difficult gestation of the new Acura NSX is finally coming to a close, as Acura confirmed today that the production-spec NSX would make its official debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show on Jan. 12, 2015. And to whet our appetites, Acura has also released a handful of teaser images of the new sports car.
 
Ted Klaus, chief engineer and global project leader over NSX development had this to say about the much anticipated car:
 
"After three years of intensive development work we are excited to reveal this next-generation supercar—the Acura NSX—to the world. We've developed a human-centered supercar that responds to the will of the driver and that builds upon the NSX heritage."
 
The NSX concept made its first debut at the 2012 North American International Auto Show, where Honda Motor Co., Ltd. President & CEO Takanobu Ito announced that development of a next-generation NSX would be completed in three years.
 
 
"The next-generation NSX will deliver a 'new sports experience' true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX," said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. "The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergized brand."
 
Acura will stream the unveiling of the new car live during the press conference on January 12th at 11:50 a.m. (Eastern) at youtube.com/Acura.
