Around twenty-five years after the original NSX enthralled motoring aficionados worldwide, Acura has taken the wraps off the new, production version of the much anticipated 2016 Acura NSX at the NAIAS 2015. The new car has been developed in the US and will go on sale in coming time. The manufacturer will start taking orders for the new NSX in the summer, with first deliveries starting in the second half of this year.
The latest generation NSX gets its juice from a twin-turbo DOHC V6 that comes mated with a 9-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) and three-electric motor Sport Hybrid system. Developed under the concept of a “human-centered supercar,” the next-generation NSX is expected to offer high levels of performance and excitement.
“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. “The soul of a car is the emotional connection it makes with the driver. With the NSX, that connection will be intense and immediate.”
The development of next-generation NSX involved almost three years of intensive development effort by a global design and engineering team led by engineers at the company’s development center in Raymond, Ohio. “The NSX reflects Acura’s American roots and makes a powerful statement about the strong role being played by our North American operations in envisioning and building the future of Acura,” said Erik Berkman, executive vice president of the Acura Business Planning Office.
