One of the first tangible signs for car buyers of Honda’s return to Formula 1 will take place at the Australian Grand Prix (15–18 March) when you will be able to get up close to the NSX Concept.
The NSX Concept will be on display at Albert Park and will also help mark the comeback of the McLaren-Honda partnership.
“This is a new era for Honda in more ways than one,” said Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins. “The NSX is the rebirth of an icon and represents power, sportiness and efficiency. The NSX Concept will be the star attraction of Honda’s on-circuit display at Albert Park. There will be many fans of the original supercar who we know will enjoy this exclusive preview.”
Australian buyers interested in the NSX should be able to place orders mid-year for delivery in 2016.

To celebrate Honda’s return to Formula 1 and support of the 2015 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix March 12 – 15, Honda will hold the first public display in Australia of the NSX Concept vehicle.
Following the world debut of the production version of the NSX – a new sports experience – at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins said Honda is thrilled to be bringing the NSX Concept to Albert Park for Australia’s premier motorsport event.
“This is a new era for Honda in more ways than one,” Mr. Collins said. “The NSX is the rebirth of an icon and represents power, sportiness and efficiency. The NSX Concept will be the star attraction of Honda’s on-circuit display at Albert Park. There will be many fans of the original supercar who we know will enjoy this exclusive preview.”
Honda Australia will have a strong presence at the track and is looking forward to working with the Australian Grand Prix Corporation to add even more spectacle to the event.
“2015 is a big year for the Honda brand, both here and internationally. This year heralds our return to Formula 1 in partnership with McLaren and the first race of the season is the perfect opportunity to showcase Honda’s exciting new products,” Mr. Collins said.
In the U.S, orders for the NSX can be placed from mid-2015, with customers receiving their vehicles by the end of the year. “We hope to start taking local pre-orders for the NSX in mid-2015, with deliveries to customers from 2016,” Mr. Collins said.
In February, Honda Australia will launch its highly-anticipated compact SUV, the all-new HR-V, which combines a sleek upper body with a stable and planted lower body to deliver excellent driving dynamics. The all-new HR-V is packed with features and starts at a Manufacturer’s List Price of $24,990*, representing outstanding value for money.
Honda is the world’s biggest engine manufacturer, a leader in automotive research and development, and consistently rated a top performer in customer satisfaction. There are more than 400,000 Hondas on the road in Australia and millions of happy customers worldwide.
