Earlier this year Japanese car brand name Acura finally presented the final prerelease version of NSX model, known as 2016 Acura NSX, distributed by Honda. In the following review you are going to get acquainted with NSX’s engine, interior, exterior and overall performance.
2016 Acura NSX Engine
2016 Acura NSX Engine will be a 3.7 liter twin turbocharged V-6, which will provide 450 HP. Three additional electric motors stand as support, two in front and one in the back, which can, when working as one with the petrol engine, provide the NSX with 550 HP and 500 lb of torque.
2016 Acura NSX 0-60
The 2016 Acura NSX is going to get from 0-60 MPH in 3 seconds without breaking a sweat, and have a top speed around 200 MPH. The interesting thing is going to be, that it will be able to use the electric motors to reach 50 MPH, which means that it will be really good vehicle for cruising through the city, and it will be a money saving opportunity due to good fuel economy.
2016 Acura NSX Interior
As far as the 2016 Acura NSX Interior is considered, it will get a minimalistic design solution, so it can give a driver, the central role in a car. Although there are some options like satellite navigation and automatic climate control in standard equipment, they will come merged in touch screen control interface.
Dashboard is divided by three meters instrument cluster, that can change colors according to Integrated Dynamics System settings. Power button is safely nested in the Central Console just beneath drivers right arm. There, on Integrated Dynamics System dial control, the driver can change everything, even the motor sound which can vary from quiet (electric motors only), sport, sport+ and track – where the driver can feel the full power of mighty twin engine.
Exterior Design of 2016 Acura NSX
2016 Acura NSX exterior design is very modern, if not even futuristic. It roars with speed, its exotic and powerful. Old headlights have been changed with two thin rows of LED DRLs, while redesigned ducts and filaments within the fascia have led Acura’s much-maligned power plenum grille treatment to a mere chrome strip.
And just like the ’91 original it will be made out of brand new materials (first was made almost entire out of aluminum). In this version 2016 Acura NSX is going to introduce “world’s first materials” with innovative construction. The shell is going to be made out of several materials including aluminum, super durable steel and carbon.
It is not sure which colors are going to be in offer, but what is certain is that it is going to come in red. Michelle Christensen, the main exterior designer even mentioned that prior to the Detroit 2015 auto show, where 2016 Acura NSX final model has been finally unveiled.
2016 Acura NSX Price and Release Date
And finally 2016 Acura NSX price is going to start at nearly 150,000 dollars, which is enormous price considering the pricing of other cars like Ford GT or Nissan GT-R. According to our exclusive source, everything indicates that the production will start this year but nothing is for sure.
