Honda’s original NSX made its name as the “everyday supercar” and now the 2017 Acura NSX wants to reclaim that crown. Packing far more technology than ever before, the new NSX – which will be sold under both the Honda brand and the Acura brand, depending on region – is now a complex all-wheel-drive hybrid.
Playing the gasoline card is a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine and a 9-speed DCT transmission. On the electrification side, there are a total of three motors. One on the crankshaft at the back helps boost the power of the V6, while the two front wheels get a dedicated motor apiece.
That means true torque control, something which Honda believes will give the NSX an edge both on the track and on the road. It’ll land in 2016, with an expected price tag upwards of $150k.
