Despite being almost two years from the showrooms, Honda has opened a pre-order bank for its hotly anticipated NSX supercar.

For a deposit of £5,000, potential owners can be among the first in the UK to get behind the wheel of the new NSX when arrives in 2015.

The dynamically styled NSX Concept was first unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in 2012, giving an indication of the design of the next great performance vehicle from Honda.

The NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.

It will also utilise a unique Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system, so the new hybrid all-wheel-drive system can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering, which Honda anticipates will deliver handling performance unmatched by previous AWD systems.

The news of a pre-order bank follows in the footsteps of the previous NSX, which saw 25 pre-orders being taken a year ahead of its UK launch.

The first generation NSX was launched in 1990 and spent 15 years in production, selling 18,000 units globally, with 290 being sold to customers in the UK.
