Following an announcement made several days ago, the Acura NSX has made its public running debut last weekend at Mid-Ohio in Lexington.

The car was driven by a member of the Ohio-based engineering development team who lapped the 2.4-mile road course with a 2015 NSX prototype wearing a custom blue livery. The vehicle is being developed by Honda R&D Americas in Raymond, Ohio and will be manufactured nearby in Marysville.

The 2015 Acura NSX will feature a three-motor high-performance hybrid system with two electric motors powering the front wheels and a third motor integrated with the V6 engine and the newly developed dual-clutch gearbox sending power to the rear axle. The system is known as Sport Hybrid SH-AWD and promises to provide "instant delivery of negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering to achieve a new level of driving performance unparalleled by current AWD systems."

The second generation of the Acura NSX is scheduled to go on sale in 2015.
