Acura NSX Finally Receives A New Generation
|   Friday, January 16, 2015
The Acura NSX version has just arrived at the 2015 edition Auto Show in Detroit in the serial version. The first generation of the NSX went out of production ten years ago.

But its successor promises to compensate the waiting period with impressive specifications, and an unusual design. Those of Acura were obviously inspired from the concept introduced in 2013 for their series model presented at this time.

However, the propulsion system entering the NSX's equipment is certainly completely new with three electric motors and a twin-turbo V6 unit, for what promises to be the most powerful production model ever built by Honda and its Acura premium branch.


Although the technical data of the new NSX is not yet published, Acura noted that the twin-turbo V6, longitudinally mounted, develops over 550 hp and is assisted by three electric motors. Two of them are mounted on the front axle and engage the front wheels while the third supports the engine and works just the rear wheels.

Together, the hybrid system is what the Japanese call the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. Although the name is not exciting, the model impresses with its complexity, with 10 radiators to cool the entire propellant assembly, one of which deals exclusively with the transmission, with the new gears and two provided clutches, the first of its kind in the world.

Acura's NSX series version has a length of 4,470 mm, a width of 1,940 mm and a height of 1,215 millimeters. The wheelbase totals 2,630 millimeters. It's bigger, wider, longer and taller than the concept presented by the premium manufacturer in Japan two years ago. In terms of wheels and tires, the front axle is equipped with 19-inch wheels wearing tires 245 / 35Z R19, while the rear axle has 295 / 30Z R20 tires on 20-inch wheels. The wheels hide a carbon-ceramic brake system with six pistons per caliper for the front axle and a four-piston rear axle.

The new Acura supercar has a switch to change the running modes with 4 modes available, from Quiet and Sport to "Track". In accordance to the chosen setting, the model changes the reaction of steering, suspension, engine, transmission and hybrid system to meet the expectations of the driver. There is also a feature that puts the three electric motors to work with the combustion engine to improve acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h.

"The next-generation NSX will deliver a 'new sports experience' true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX. The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergized brand." stated Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager.

At the 2012 North American International Auto Show, the Acura NSX concept model debuted. At that time Honda President & CEO Takanobu Ito announced that development of a next-gen NSX would launch in three years, spearheaded by an American R&D team and manufactured at a brand new plant in Ohio.
