About the Acura NSX
With Precision Crafted Performance as the touchstone and innovation as its tenet, new ways were created to engineer, design, build and produce an iconic, exotic supercar. Ultimately, it’s a New Sports eXperience that can only be called NSX.
The first of its kind! NSX is the first supercar powered by a bespoke Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, 573-hp power unit that is an absolute game-changer. NSX Engine power and direct electric torque combine for a new kind of dynamic performance, not just in acceleration, but in steering and braking too. This is interwoven dynamics in the purest sense: exhilarating performance powered by precision.
Between the V6 and the 9-speed DCT, the direct drive supercar electric motor is attached directly to the driveshaft for immediate torque and acceleration. Launch Mode can slice of .5 seconds and deliver pressed-back-in-your-seat Gs the instant you release the brake
Its dynamic range flexes to reflect its driver’s mood, responding to every input with absolute fidelity. Weekend touring or competitive tracking, commuting or negotiating a mountain pass, it adapts and supports and partners with its driver. That purity of dynamic response extends beyond motion to emotion: the love of driving, with utter confidence.
