The long wait for Honda’s new NSX just got a little bit shorter, with news that a running prototype will take to the racetrack prior to next month’s Honda Indy 200 IndyCar Series race at Mid-Ohio.

Development of the all-new NSX, due for launch in 2015, is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas in Raymond, Ohio.

The NSX prototype with its custom graphics will lap the circuit prior to the race on August 4th, providing the chance to hear its new mid-mounted V-6 engine at speed.

Mated to Honda’s new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system, the NSX supercar will be Honda’s first ever hybrid sports car and marks the return of the ground-breaking NSX which was originally produced between 1990 and 2005.

Unlike its predecessor, which was built in Tochigi and Suzuka in Japan, the all-new NSX will be born and bred in the U, S of A. Acura’s newly established Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio will handle production with cars being branded ‘Honda’ in markets outside America.
