2017 Acura NSX Deemed ‘Supercar’ by Automotive Experts

2017-02-27T12:24:05+00:00February 27th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles|

After more than a decade of waiting, Acura introduces the second-generation Acura NSX stirring a buzz of fascination and awe.

The previous model of the Acura NSX that was produced from 1990 to 2005 proved to car enthusiasts that a supercar does not necessarily have to come from Europe. The first generation NSX brought new innovations to the supercar industry, such as the ‘Push to Start’ feature. However, Acura felt that to keep up with the competition they would have to head back to the design table. After twelve years of engineering, the 2017 Acura NSX is back with state of the art technology and a few new industry-firsts. iTech Post, an automotive news website, claims the 2017 Acura NSX “can go toe-to-toe with any European supercar.” As an authorized Acura dealer, Acura Santa Barbara takes great pride in hearing the critical acclaim of one of our brands by industry professionals.

What is New with the 2017 NSX?

When we consider the fact that this car has been in development for over a decade, it comes as no surprise that there isn’t a whole lot of similarities between this one and its predecessor outside of the collaboration of brilliant Acura engineers. For instance, in addition to a twin-turbo V-6 engine, the new NSX is equipped with three electric motors. Combined, the NSX puts out an impressive 573 horsepower capable of reaching from 0 to 60 mph in just three seconds. As a result of the electric motors, the NSX creates zero turbo-lag and a highly responsive torque output. Acura also successfully developed the vehicle to create very little noise making it both powerful and discreet.

One of the best new features of the 2017 NSX is the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive technology, a first when it comes to supercar technology. With full automatic all-wheel drive traction and handling system designed by Honda, the responsiveness of the NSX fuses car and driver into one powerful organism built for pinpoint cornering performance and stability. The 2017 Acura NSX also utilizes its body construction for aerodynamics and optimum functionality. This supercar is the perfect example of how to make form and function accent each other.

Lightweight Construction – To provide the highest power and acceleration, the Acura NSX was designed to be lightweight and durable. Paired with a nine-speed dual clutch automatic, the engine rockets this sport car to its highest speeds in seconds.   The body is made of a meticulous blend of aluminum, carbon fiber, and high-strength steel to provide exceptional dynamics and handling.

Attention to Detail – Acura took great pains to create the perfect blend of form and function. Weaving sports car performance with daily usability, the Acura NSX was engineered to be as powerful as it is beautiful. The interior details were designed to be comfortable, accessible, and intuitive. From the moment the driver takes the wheel and presses on the pedals, the car is designed to reply with responsiveness, control, and exhilarating power.
