But since not everything is an engine, aesthetically the Corvette has taken a big step, a step towards a front with a european design language, while maintaining all the muscle we could expect from a Corvette. We cannot ignore its interior either, where it has occurred a real and welcome improvement. More equipment, everything focused on the driver, better finish, better appearance, more technology … Without a doubt, the star of the Detroit Motor Show.

In 2013 they have not wanted to miss the North American appointment and the Sling NSX has been present again, but not the same as in 2012. Honda has presented slight changes in the conceptual model changes that have also come accompanied by the first pictures of the interior of this new Honda NSXand go inside.

Honda bets on a classic scheme in the interior design of this new NSX. A scheme that goes through simplicity, at least is more. A screen in the center console as the only element of it. Carbon fiber, Alcantara and leather Isn’t this cabin just sublime for a sports car? Who wants more? Mechanically the NSX remains faithful to the scheme presented in 2012. A V6, three electric motors, a double clutch transmission and 7 relations … The only downside is that we will have to wait until 2015.
