2017 Honda Acura NSX

   The Honda NSX, marketed in North America as the Acura NSX, is a two seat, mid-engine sports car manufactured by Honda. The production model was displayed three years later at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, for sale in 2016. Although the original name was retained, this time it was defined as “New Sports eXperience”

From those who fell for the first-generation supercar in 1991, to those who got their first glimpse in a Super Bowl ad, NSX has always provoked an intense reaction. And when it’s driven, the response is unparalleled. This is a car created with and for emotion, engineered to become an extension of its driver with such fidelity, it’s hard to find the line between man and machine.

ENGINEERING IS AN ART. Equal parts rational and emotional, engineering is at its best when the tension between these sides results in harmony. Such was the vision for NSX: power and beauty, precision and nuance, interwoven such that the car itself becomes both a machine and an experience.

PRECISION CRAFTED PERFORMANCE, the Acura mantra, served as both philosophical approach and physical benchmark for NSX. Thus a wholly new supercar was brought to life: an exotic sports car born of racing DNA, equal parts adrenaline and composure.

NSX SPORTS HYBRID POWER UNIT: Precisely engineered to produce 573-hp, 476 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 191 MPH.

DYNAMICS BEGINS WITH PHYSICS AND NSX is the first supercar powered by a bespoke Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel DriveTM, 573-hp power unit that is an absolute game-changer. Engine power and direct electric torque combine for a new kind of dynamic performance, not just in acceleration, but in steering and braking too. This is interwoven dynamics in the purest sense: exhilarating performance powered by precision.2017 Acura NSX body-min

Think of it as throttle response deluxe. Sandwiched between the V-6 and the 9-speed DCT, the direct drive electric motor is attached directly to the driveshaft for immediate torque and acceleration. In Launch Mode, it can slice off .5 seconds and deliver pressed-back-in-your-seat Gs the instant you release the brake.

G-loading you can feel comes from two independent electric motors at the front wheels that deal out immediate torque on the move for athletic acceleration that makes passing absolutely effortless.

There was one unassailable design rule: Every aspect of the car must serve a purpose. So while NSX aesthetics are unmistakable, they’re not simply a matter of allure. Every character line, body panel, shape and crease; every air flow intake and outlet; every proportion and ratio is optimized to support its dynamic performance.

Three times the downforce at the rear of the car than at the front provides ultimate balance. Painstakingly carved design lines augment that balance with total airflow management. Together they create unparalleled performance with extraordinary efficiency.
