The first generation NSX was released two and a half decades ago and was known for its strong chassis and reliability. This original NSX challenged conventional beliefs about sports cars and the next-generation Acura NSX that was unveiled at the 2015 New York International Auto Show is doing the same. You’ll see hints of the original NSX in features like the tail lights and its aggressive front design. New improvements to the exterior center around total airflow management for a better performance and a body made up of ultra high-strength steel, a carbon fiber floor and stronger welding that actual reduces the size and weight of the NSX. Whether you are a sports car fanatic or not, everyone will appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship and legendary performance of the next-generation NSX.
The soul of the new NSX is a hybrid powertrain setup. It’s loaded with 3 electric motors that complement the 3.5L TwinTurbo V6 engine and gives the NSX its unbelievable power. The 9-speed DCT with an electric motor applies its torque directly to the crankshaft for immediate power delivery to the rear wheels giving the NSX mind-blowing acceleration. The new NSX stays true to its heritage while adaptive modern technology that gives more control to the vehicles most important part, the driver.
The next-generation NSX was designed as a “human-centered sports car” and the interior puts everything in reach of the driver. You’ll find essential control buttons right on the steering wheel including the paddle shifters. The instrument cluster behind the steering wheel displays rich color graphics of the vehicles performance and the center console is home to both the push button ignition and the Integrated Dynamics System dial control which allows the driver to seamlessly transition between drive modes. When you step into the next-generation NSX you don’t just see a driver’s seat, you see a comfortable and functional cockpit that puts you in control of sports car like no other.
