The second generation Acura NSX has made its world premiere in production guise at NAIAS in Detroit. It’s been a long time in the making but finally the supercar is ready to hit the assembly line and it’s scheduled to go on sale in United States this summer from an estimated starting price of $150,000. Its heart and soul is a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system encompassing a twin-turbo longitudinally-mounted V6 engine and three electric motors which together generate more than 550 bhp. Two of the electric motors sit up front while the third one is positioned between the engine and the dual-clutch 9-speed transmission.
The second generation Acura NSX is 4470mm long, 1940mm wide and 1215mm tall and it rides on 19-inch front & 20-inch rear alloy wheels wrapped around in 245/35Z R19 front & 295/30Z R20 rear tires. Stopping power is provided by 6-piston front & 4-piston rear calipers working with carbon ceramic discs.
Acura says their all-new NSX is equipped with an Integrated Dynamic System operated by a dial to select one of the available models: Quiet, Sport, Sport+ and Track. Depending on selection, these modes alter the settings of the chassis, gearbox, electric motors and combustion engine. A “zero delay” launch performance is possible thanks to a launch function which uses the conventional engine and all three electric motors.
