We have been teased long enough, and now the new NSX appears to be ready for launch. As the official Pace Car of the 2015 Pike’s Peak Hill Climb, Acura’s latest supercar used twin turbos and three electric motors to scorch the treacherous trail. This new production model of the NSX is powered by a twin turbocharged V6 engine mated to a nine-speed dualclutch transmission. The NSX also receives power from an all-new, three electric motor Sport Hybrid (SH) system. The front wheels receive power or braking from two electric motors while the third is inside the rear mounted transmission.
“…the NSX represents the culmination of countless engineering efforts and years of development.”
“Our commitment was to create an all-new NSX that is true to the heritage of NSX—a supercar that delivers a new driving experience, one where every part of the vehicle is respectful of the smartest part of the car, the driver,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of the Acura division, in a press release introducing the car. The new 2016 NSX is comprised of multiple materials, including aluminum, carbon fiber and ultra-high strength steel. Sharing almost no components with Acura’s other production models, the NSX represents the culmination of countless engineering efforts and years of development. Being the halo car for one of the largest automakers is a tall order to fill. So in order to ensure quality, a dedicated production line at Honda’s Marysville, Ohio plant is ready to roll.
