We haven't heard much about the Acura NSX since a prototype burst into flames at the Nürburgring but the model's head of development has revealed some new details about the upcoming sports car.

Speaking to What Car, Ted Klaus said the NSX will "... have to achieve the type of acceleration that the customer is achieving with the Ferrari. More importantly we have to achieve this every day and also at the Nürburgring."

Klaus also confirmed the model will be priced competitively with the Audi R8. He declined to say which version of the R8 but it starts at $115,900 in the United States.

The engineer went on to say the company hopes to match the sales of the R8 but noted "We will not seek to meet demand – there is value in making the product rare." He also hinted we can expect additional variants including a roadster and a high-performance model.
