2015 Acura NSX to debut at the Detroit Motor Show

After years of speculation and the debut of a conceptual prototype at 2012′s Beijing Motor Show — not to mention an appearance of sorts in The AvengersAcura’s production version of the next-generation NSX supercar is finally set for an unveiling. Set to take the stage at the 2015 North American International Auto Show next month, the vehicle is the long-awaited successor to the original NSX, which ceased production back in 2005. Said chief engineer Ted Klaus of the 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.

To whet your appetite ahead of the official debut, Acura has even released a brief teaser video — offering enthusiasts an early glimpse of the vehicle and the sound of its three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit.

Toyota FT-1 Concept

Kicking off the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Toyota pulls the red curtain on its FT-1 concept coupe. The sleek FT-1 (Future Toyota 1) has been a project of the automotive company’s Calty design studio for over two years now, and will further commemorate its 40th anniversary.

Pairing a traditional front-engine placement with rear-wheel drive, the aggressively curvy two-door concept is heavily influenced by Toyota’s sports car past, especially its Celica and Supra lines. Exterior features include a 2000GT-inspired wraparound windshield and side windows, a retractable rear wing, robust fenders, an Enzo-like front bumper, a unique vent system, and much more. On the inside, the driver sits back in a low cockpit with an F1-inspired steering wheel, a delta-shaped display zone, composite seating and a heads up display to keep its driver focused on the road ahead.

Though its technical features and possible release details are unknown, the Toyota FT-1 will be available on Sony’s Gran Turismo 6.
