Acura Has Some Awesome Plans For The New NSX

November 3rd, 2015 by
Time to get down to business.
It’s been less than a year since the all-new, second generation Acura NSX debuted at Detroit, and sales are set to begin shortly. With demand expected to be high, at least initially, we’ve been hearing about plans to not only keep the NSX fresh but also more competitive against a growing number of rivals. The latest bit of news comes to us today from Australia’s CarAdvice who, speaking with NSX project leader Ted Klaus, confirmed that two more NSX variants are in the pipeline.

Expect an open top NSX to arrive fairly soon and it’ll likely pay homage to the original NSX with a targa style removable roof. But what ought to be really quite something is the even more powerful NSX Type R. According to Klaus, the NSX’s “chassis has way more capability, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we take advantage of that in the future as well.” If any NSX fans recall, the original NSX Type R, put more of an emphasis on weight reduction as opposed to added power. This time, however, Acura/Honda is intent on doing both. The “base” NSX is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that’s paired to three electric motors and a lithium-ion battery pack for a combined output of 573 hp.

The state-of-the-art Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive System, according to Honda, provides superior handling and Ferrari 458-matching acceleration but with far greater fuel efficiency. So when will that NSX targa and Type R appear? No timetable for either has been announced just yet but we’re guessing the targa will come along first.
