The new Honda NSX, when it hits our shores early next year, will be the first hybrid supercar released in Australia. And, yes, it makes sense to emphasise the hybrid part -- while it can be an all-out supercar that cracks 0-100km/h in under three seconds and storms on to 300km/h with change to spare, it can also creep around town on electricity alone, eerily quiet. Oh, and you'll pay $420,000 for the privilege.

The new Honda NSX -- the circa-$400,000, sub 3.0-seconds to 100km/h, 427kW hybrid petrol-electric quad-motor monster -- is already a mean piece of automotive engineering. The FIA GT3 spec of that car? Even meaner.
The original Honda NSX was the first mass-production vehicle with an all-aluminium body, a revolution for its time. The new 2017 NSX is entirely more advanced, but in different ways. For one, it's a hybrid supercar with an electric motor and twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 propelling it to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds and to a top speed of 307km/h. But its design is what makes that possible, and one feature is a holistic approach to the car's interaction with air.
