Acura Finally Revealed the Production Model of the Next-Generation NSX

Video (02m:39s): All-New 2016 Acura NSX Reveal Video
Press Release : Next Generation Acura NSX Unveiled

A quarter of a century has passed since the debut of the first NSX, its successor, unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, is now a hybrid supercar, challenging orthodox beliefs about supercars and promising to provide a “new sports experience”.

The next-generation Acura NSX’s power unit includes an all-new mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged 75-degree, DOHC V6 engine coupled with an Acura-developed 9-speed DCT and three-electric motor Sport Hybrid system. The all-new 9-speed DCT delivers synapse-quick gear changes and rev-matching downshifts. The rear direct-drive electric motor, housed between the engine and transmission, supports acceleration, braking and transmission shifting performance. The NSX’s front wheels are driven by twin independent high-output electric motors which deliver instantaneous torque response and dynamic left-to-right torque distribution.

The original NSX was the world’s first production car to feature all-aluminum monocoque body, and in keeping with that legacy, the next-generation NSX features an innovative new multi-material body design with world’s-first material applications and construction processes. The NSX body utilizes a space frame design—an internal frame constructed of aluminum, ultra-high strength steel and other advanced materials. Anchored by a carbon fiber floor, torsional and bending forces are taken up entirely by this ultra-rigid structure which also utilizes advanced joining technologies. The NSX features world’s-first casting technology that combines the design and manufacturing flexibility of a casting process with the strength and elongation properties of a forged material, enabling significant weight reduction. The body panels are composed of a combination of aluminum and sheet molding composite.

The NSX utilizes a fully independent, all-aluminum front and rear suspension and puts its considerable power down through ContiSportContact™ high-performance tires—245/35Z R19 front and 295/30Z R20 rear—mounted on 19×8.5 inch front and 20×11 inch rear aluminum alloy wheels. Powerful, natural and confident braking performance is provided by 6-piston front and 4-piston rear monoblock calipers squeezing ultra-high performance carbon-ceramic brake discs.

The next-generation Acura NSX is developed and produced in the U.S. Acura will begin accepting custom orders for the new NSX starting in the summer, with customer deliveries expected later in the year.
