The Acura / Honda NSX origins trace all the way back to the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina eXperimental) concept from 1984. This vehicle was ahead of its time and a mid-engined 3.0 L V6 engined rear wheel drive sports car. Honda wanted to compete with the Ferrari supercars with V8 engines, while offering far more reliability and a lower price point. Eventually, the concept evolved into the NS-X, which stood for “New”, “Sportscar” “eXperimental” , although the production model was launched as the NSX. Sung Nak Lee has put an electrified autonomous twist on this supercar.
