2017 Acura NSX Type R

The original NSX was in production between 1990 and 2005. It was the first Japanese supercar that was capable to compete with Ferrari or Porsche models, for example, and nowadays, it is already considered as a legendary car. After 10 years of brake, company finally presented new, second generation of this amazing car. It was presented this year in Detroit, while European premiere was at Geneva Motor Show. This model is already on its way for serial production but we are also expecting to see a high-end version, which will come probably next year and will be called 2017 Acura NSX Type R.

Well, it isn’t expected that 2017 Acura NSX Type R will be much different from model that was presented in Detroit. The basic look is expected to remain pretty much the same, but it is also expected that there will be a whole bunch of unique details, reserved just for this version. There are no official details, but it is rumored that 2017 NSX Type R will get slightly modified front end, with new bumper which will feature larger air intakes. It is also possible that there will be some special color options in offer such as legendary Championship White. When it is interior, we also expect to see many “Type R” details which will even more emphasize car’s already supersport character.
