Swoopy styling; advanced hybrid drivetrain; all-wheel drive; stunning performance; excellent handling; exclusivity
After well over a decade, the Acura NSX nameplate returns to the U.S. marketplace. The 2017 NSX goes back to its roots as the first practical supercar; redefining that concept for the modern age. Acura have thrown everything and the kitchen sink at the NSX to make it the most sophisticated and best performing supercar that's ever been built. With swoopy styling, a low center of gravity and well over 500 horsepower, the 2017 NSX is primed to take on all challengers.
At the heart of any supercar is its drivetrain and the NSX is no different. Power is supplied by a 500 horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 engine, mated to an electric motor that sends power to the rear wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission. The front wheels are also powered however, utilizing a pair of electric motors mounted in the front of the vehicle. Total system output is rated at 573 horsepower, enough to provide for neck snapping acceleration. With the bulk of the engine weight located behind the driver, but in front of the rear axle, the NSX also turns as well as it goes, its low center of gravity aiding it in achieving excellent cornering speeds. All-wheel drive ensures plenty of grip upon corner exit.
