2016 Acura NSX

Acura NSX, also known as Honda NSX (outside U.S.) was originally introduced in 1991. In that time, it was a big surprise that some Japanese manufacturer constructed a sports car which, it turned out, was able to compete with brands such as Porsche and Ferrari. It was V6 sports car with excellent performances, which production was finally ended in 2005. In next few years Honda presented some ideas how new supercar should look like. Firstly it was planned new model to have a monster V10 engine, but this idea was dropped in 2008 due economic crisis. After that, Honda came out with totally different concept of car, which should be with smaller engine, great fuel economy but still fun to drive.

Just like original, new 2016 Acura NSX will be power with 3.5 liter V6 twin turbo petrol engine. This time it will be combined with electric motors. Main quantity of power will be delivered from combination of this petrol engine and one big electric motor. This couple will be responsible for rear wheels. On the other side, there will be also two additional electro motors which will deliver their power to the front, each for one wheel. It is expected that the whole system will produce over 550 horses. With a new dual-clutch transmission and Honda’s proven SH-AWD (Super-Handling All Wheel-Drive), great performances are expected for this car. For example, new model should go from 0 to 60 significantly below 4 seconds and should have top speed over 200 mph.

At this moment, it is very hard to put 2016 Acura NSX where it belongs in sports car hierarchy. It will definitely have performances of a supercar, so it could be great alternative to cars such as Ferrari 458 Italia and McLaren MP4 12C. It should be in the same price range and have similar characteristics as Audi R8 but on the other side it is a hybrid car, so it could also be compared with models such as Nissan GT-R or Lexus LF-A hybrid variants. It is clear that 2016 Acura NSX will be versatile car, with great performance, great fuel economy, at the same time extremely fun to drive and a car you can live with.
