Honda has announced that the all-new NSX super car will be made at a new Performance Manufacturing Centre in Ohio, USA. The $70 million advanced production facility encompasses 184,000 square feet and will be housed inside Honda’s former North American Logistics facility.

The site, which will be Honda’s third car plant in Ohio, is located close to the Honda R&D Americas, Inc. The Ohio Centre that is engineering the super car for production and adjacent to Honda of America Manufacturing’s Marysville Plant. The Performance Manufacturing Centre is also close to Honda Engineering North America, Inc., centre for the development of new production technologies.

The Performance Manufacturing Centre will employ approximately 100 highly skilled workers drawn from within Honda’s existing operations in Ohio. The powertrain will be assembled in Ohio at Honda’s engine plant in Anna.

The all-new NSX, which will be badged as a Honda in Europe and Acura in the U.S., is being developed by a global R&D team led by designers and engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. located in Los Angeles, Califorrnia, and Raymond, Ohio.

Honda also announced that Honda R&D Americas chief engineer Ted Klaus is leading the global team developing the new NSX, and Clement D’ Souza, associate chief engineer at Honda of America, is leading the team that will bring NSX to mass production in 2015.

The NSX will feature a unique powertrain and body structure to provide an incredible driving experience. It will be powered by a mid-mounted V-6 engine matched to Honda’s innovative new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.

Once selected, the team of production workers at the Performance Manufacturing Centre will begin training and establishing manufacturing processes that will be used to build the all-new NSX. The next generation NSX will be built exclusively at the all-new Performance Manufacturing Centre. In addition to being sold in North America, the NSX will be exported to customers throughout the world.

The original Honda NSX was built at the Takanezawa Plant in Japan from 1990 until production moved to the Suzuka Plant in early 2004, where it was produced until 2005. Part of the Tochigi Factory, the Takanezawa Plant was the first manufacturing facility in the world to mass-produce an all-aluminium body and balance advanced production equipment with hands-on “craftsman” processes.
