2016 Acura NSX

After years of anticipation, countless concept prototypes, and several reported “leaks,” the Japanese auto makers at Acura have finally unveiled the 2016 Acura NSX.

Sure there were a lot of vehicles we were looking forward to seeing at this year’s Detroit Auto Show (see the 2016 Ford GT), but nothing excited us quite like the unveiling of the NSX. One of our favorite supercars of the 90s, we’ve been begging for a return since the sunsetting production model in 2005. More than just a fresh face, this thing is packed with all sorts of new tech, and an impressive power plant to boot. The mid-engine supercar has been outfitted with a longitudinally mounted twin-turbocharged 75-degree DOHC V6 engine (north of 550-horsepower) coupled with a 9-speed dual clutch transmission. What’s most impressive is Honda’s Sport Hybrid system, which will pair the petrol-powered V6 with a trio of electric motors to help this thing pin you to the back of your seat under wide open throttle (using the car’s zero-delay acceleration system).

The next generation NSX is equipped with fully independent, all aluminum front and rear suspension for optimum handling around the track, while a set of 6-piston calipers in the front and 4-piston calipers in the back clasp onto high performance carbon ceramic discs for maximum stopping power. When it comes to design, this thing is an obvious throwback to the 90s model of yesteryear (without the flip-up headlights of course). It’s slightly lengthened (to fit the engine setup), and features modified hood vents, front fender vents, modified side air intakes, and an optimized deck spoiler for increase downforce. Although no official price point has been revealed, we do know this bad boy will fetch upwards of $150,000.
