The Toyota GT86 proved that petrolheads still clamour for involvement and the NSX will epitomise this attitude, claims develpment chief Ted Klaus. Next_Evolution_of_NSX_Concept_Geneva Motor_show_2013_05 Much like the original NSX, this car "has never been about a set of figures on a piece of paper." Without headline grabbing power figures, one of the toughest jobs the team faces is communicating the car's capabilities - "the qualities that you can't write down, such as driver involvement and pleasure, are the ones that will matter." 050813hon-b If you weren't already getting a twinge of excitement, Honda have benchmarked the likes of the Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, McLaren 12C, Porsche 911 and Ferrari 458 - all cars at the top of the game.
