2016 Acura NSX: ‘The Icon Drives Again’
While it may be a bit of a stretch to compare 2016 Acura NSX hybrid supercar to the original low displacement, motorsport derived, manually adjusted, and mechanically shifted NSX, Acura claims a direct DNA link to the original. For most of us that owned and drove the original, the thought of a major reinvention of the wheel in this case is welcomed.
First Generation NSX enjoyed an unprecedented 15 year production run
Looking to 2016 NSX, the mid engine placement and passenger compartment relation to the engine and drivetrain remain in tact, all else has changed, and largely for the better.The second generation NSX will be a true one of a kind, gasoline hybrid supercar offering world-class propulsion performance and torque-vectoring 4 wheel drive road traction. And, with a beginning MSRP anticipated below $160,000, NSX is a measurable bargain in a world of mid 6 figure supercars.
In a recent phone interview with NSX engineering, Torque News learned a bit of the extensive, painstaking engineering that preceded the final rendering of what will be presented in late 2015 as the long anticipated 2016 NSX hybrid supercar.
2016 Acura NSX showcases technology featured throughout Acura’s 2016 lineup. ILX Jewel-Eye headlight technology, MDX electronic gear and mode selection, and TLX dual clutch automated transmission technology is just a very small sampling of NSX shared and inspired features found throughout an ever evolving Acura lineup.
