Leaked: Honda Will Make Next-Gen NSX With Mclaren-Honda F1 Engine
Tokyo, 31 March: Leaks suggest that Honda confirmed to launch the brand new NSX in 2020, to replace the current hybrid NSX. The existence of the leak is still unsure, but according to the user, he claimed that he is one of the developers of the next NSX.
Apparently, according to the leak, Honda decided not to electrify the NSX, as sources claimed. However, instead of continuing the current engine, Honda decided to use the 1.6 V6 turbo from the last-year’s Mclaren-Honda F1 car.
To improve efficiency and reliability, the engine will be detuned and RPM-limited. The new engine will be confirmed to have a maximum power output of 63 hp, the exact same amount a kei car produces. He said: “We know about how the engine, so we detuned it seriously to keep it’s reliability, to make sure Honda still produces good engines even to the future.
Saying that the power is not enough? The new car will have another engine, no, not an goddamn electric motor, but a brand new “KinectTEC” engine, powered by 2 genetically modified hamsters on specially designed hamster wheels to the front wheels. The hamsters are developed by Honda in-house for 20 years, and they claimed that they have tested it on a modified Honda CRV, claiming it generates way more power and less fuel than a standard petrol engine. There’s no words of how much power it can produce, but the person claimed: “It’s more powerful than the current NSX, as far as we know it.”
Also, the new car will be using a steel chassis, rather than the aluminum/carbon fiber space frame the current one uses. The reason why Honda doing this is still unknown, but some sources claimed that Honda doing this because they are too tired of people using those high-tech materials for their supercar.
While it sounds untrue, to prove it’s existence, the person that leaked the details to me on Facebook, and he said that this is really game-changing if the rumour came true. He also stated that he also told some other news outlets, including The Onion and some other automobile news outlets.
At this moment, Honda didn’t reply to the info about the next NSX.
In other unrelated news: Mercedes-Benz will release their own cryptocurrency next week, and they stated the new coin will compete with Bitcoin and Dogecoin.
UPDATE: Happy April Fools, guys!
