Honda approves PPG for flagship NSX

08 September 2015

Even before Honda’s all new flagship sports car, the NSX, reaches its first customers in early 2016, PPG has already received global repair approval from Honda Japan for the supercar.

Back in 1990, the original NSX was a technological masterpiece and the second generation is set to follow suit. Along with advanced new light weight, multi-material construction, the new NSX features a hyper-sophisticated power unit including a twin turbo V6 engine, three electric motors and a nine speed dual clutch transmission which directs the total system power of more than 410kW to the road via all four wheels. Exterior styling is another spectacular highpoint. Every element of the low, wide and sleek aerodynamic body is designed to reinforce the car’s state-of-the-art credentials. Attention to detail can be found everywhere, including a truly dynamic colour selection. Customers will be offered multiple three-stage colour options, including PPG’s cutting-edge Andaro tint dispersion technology. This innovative, PPG developed technology provides the ability to achieve deep, pure and more chromatic colours than is possible with traditional pigments. And the close relationship with Honda goes even further. Indeed, PPG coatings technology will actually be applied at Honda’s new Performance Manufacturing Centre in Marysville, Ohio, USA where the second generation supercar will be produced. A team of PPG staff from Japan and the USA has been supporting Honda during the development phase and the step into production that will see the revolutionary vehicle make its transition from concept to the road.
