Twenty-five years after the
debut of the original, paradigm-shifting NSX supercar, Acura revealed the
production version of its highly anticipated successor—the next-generation
Acura NSX, developed and produced in the U.S.—to the world’s auto media at the 2015
North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The production model, in a NSX
Red finish, took the stage with a growl from its twin-turbocharged engine.
The company will begin accepting custom orders
for the new NSX starting in the summer, with customer deliveries expected later
in the year. According to a press statement issued by the company, the car has
been specifically created to bring a “new sports experience” to the supercar
The car has an all-new power
unit—a twin-turbocharged 75-degree DOHC V6 engine with a 9-speed dual clutch
transmission (DCT) and three-electric motor Sport Hybrid system—integrated with
an ultra-rigid and lightweight multi-material body with world’s-first material
applications and manufacturing processes. Developed under the concept of a
“human-centred supercar,” a car that puts the driver first in every aspect of
its design, the next-generation NSX will leverage its state-of-the-art hybrid
supercar power unit, body and chassis to deliver exceptionally intuitive and
immediate response to driver inputs.
The NSX body features classic low and wide
proportions married to modern and alluring surfacing, an aggressive front
design, and tail lights that pays homage to the original NSX. The signature
side intake and floating C-pillar collects air to feed the mid-mounted engine
and directs airflow over the rear deck to increase downforce. To accommodate
the new longitudinally mounted twin-turbo V6 and 9-speed DCT, the production
vehicle was lengthened (+3 inches) and widened (+1 inch) with a slightly more
cab-forward package, compared with the proportions of the NSX Concept shown in
Every element of the exterior
body design has been carefully fashioned for total airflow management for both
stability-enhancing downforce and vehicle systems cooling. The NSX has
undergone extensive testing at the company’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel in
Raymond, Ohio, leading to a number of significant changes from concept to final
body design, including modified hood vents, new front fender vents, modified
side air intakes, and an optimised deck spoiler
