At the North American International Auto Show and in a press release issued today, the 2016 Acura NSX was unveiled to the world. This new production model of the NSX is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine mated to a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission.

“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 the press release. “The soul of a car is the emotional connection it makes with the driver. With the NSX, that connection will be intense and immediate.”
