Despite seeing the spy photos and technical sketches, development the Acura NSX successor came to a halt in late 2008 for various reasons. Now Acura has announced a concept version of the next generation Acura NSX super car will make its debut at the Detroit Motor Show on January 9. Previous reports place a 3.5- to 3.7-liter V6 hybrid engine with two electric motors under the hood of the aluminum bodied NSX. It is expected to reach the market by 2014.

Although the NSX concept will take center stage, Acura will also debut the Acura ILX Concept compact sedan. Based on the 2012 Honda Civic, the ILX Concept is a styling preview of the new model that will launch in the spring 2012. The ILX will feature three powertrains including Acura's first-ever gas-electric hybrid with a 1.5-liter engine producing 95 hp (71 kW / 96 PS) through a CVT transmission. The other two engine choices include 2.0-liter and 2.4-liter four-cylinders with automatic transmissions.

Acura also will unveil a prototype of the 2013 RDX, the second generation of Acura's five-passenger SUV. Underpinned by the Honda CR-V, the RDX will receive a V6 engine for the first time. It will be more powerful and efficient than the current RDX's 240hp (179 kW / 243 PS) 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder and is also exspected to join the ILX with a market launch in the spring.
