Twenty-five years after the debut of the original, Acura has revealed the production version of their highly anticipated, next-generation Acura NSX. Specifically created to bring a “new sports experience” to the supercar segment, the NSX is realized through an all-new power unit—a twin-turbocharged 75-degree DOHC V6 engine with a 9-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) and three-electric motor Sport Hybrid system—integrated with an ultra-rigid and lightweight multi-material body. The NSX body features classic low and wide proportions married to modern surfacing, an aggressive front design, and tail lights that pays homage to the original NSX. To accommodate the new longitudinally mounted twin-turbo V6 and 9-speed DCT, the production vehicle was lengthened (+3 inches) and widened (+1 inch) with a slightly more cab-forward package, compared with the proportions of the NSX Concept shown in 2012.
The NSX interior boasts exceptional forward visibility, simple and intuitive controls, and class-leading ergonomics. The NSX’s instrument cluster features a dynamic TFT display that responds to changes in the driver-selectable Integrated Dynamics System with graphics and information. The center console holds the Power button that readies the sport hybrid powertrain, nested in the center of the new Integrated Dynamics System dial control.
