Honda NSX hybrid supercar showcased at 2015 Tokyo Motor Show
Honda NSX hybrid will be offered with power and performance that puts it in the same league as the likes of Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi R8 V10 and Ferrari 488 GTB.

The new hybrid system in all-wheel drive format not only boosts acceleration rate but also contributes to enhanced stability, especially when cornering.
