Drive an Acura NSX
On a Racetrack!
It’s back. After more than 10 years since the first generation, the Acura NSX has returned with all new, state-of-the-art supercar technology – and performance. That Acura chose to release the road car and a GT3 racecar version at the same time is an enormous statement of intent and confidence in the new NSX platform. read more >
Some may have argued that the original NSX was a high on performance but bland in appearance. That argument won’t wash with the new NSX. Sculpted to a beautiful purpose, the new NSX dazzles in both appearance and performance.
With hybrid electric power to all four wheels upping the twin-turbo V6 to 573 total horsepower, the new NSX leaps to 60 MPH in just 2.7 seconds, and keeps going to a 191 MPH top speed. Managing all that power is a 9-speed, dual clutch gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddles that changes gears seamlessly and with amazing swiftness.
It takes more than an engine and gearbox to produce great performance. Chassis dynamics are crucial to controlling power and delivering a breathtaking driving experience. The NSX’s all-aluminum chassis uses a different manufacturing process at different points to optimize strength, rigidity and safety. The result is uncannily precise handling during braking, turn-in and corner exit. Third-generation magnetorheological (MR) dampers respond to the road more than 1000 times per second, keeping the car firmly planted while delivering precise feedback to the driver.
The styling is beautiful to behold and in this car, beauty is more than skin-deep. The NSX’s designers thought about how the design affects the driving experience. Small, but important details include the front wheel arches that are visible from the driver seat in the same way the front wheels are visible to a Formula 1 driver. As a result, the corner apex’s are easily aligned with the inside front tire. The slender A-pillars offer a near wrap-around view from the cockpit. In fact, Acura states that 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.
Yet, it’s not only about the numbers or the dazzling technology. This is a car that delivers sublime performance on the road and on the track. It’s the right blend of raw and refined to inspire the confidence needed to explore its amazing limits. With four driving modes, from “Quiet” to “Track,” the NSX can be fine-tuned to deliver more aggression with every step.
With the bulk of its weight near the middle, the NSX displays neutral balance through the apex. Then, thanks to,”torque vectoring,” you can feed the power confidently from apex all the way to corner exit with a touch of oversteer before its mind-bending acceleration takes over. When the next corner arrives, braking is a matter of pressing hard on the pedal and letting the systems dial in the fine modulation for you. As a result you can shorten the brake zone by a few a precious yards. Other cars may be more wild and raucous, but the NSX wasn’t made to be loud. It was made to achieve automotive perfection, and let you find driving perfection.less >

Tips From A Pro
"The new Acura NSX is the ultimate point and squeeze car. With all-wheel drive capability and the instant torque of the electric motors, matched to an ultra-dynamic chassis and lighting fast 9-speed gearbox, just point it where you want to go and squeeze on the power as fast as you dare. The NSX will respond to your every input and then tease you for a little more. A pussycat on the road turns into a wildcat on the track with the agility, power, and grace of a panther."
