Honda’s luxury line adamantly releases its luxury hybrid of a premium sports car. Raised eyebrows are anticipated as drawn reaction from anyone who’s familiar with Acura’s ailing status. It is then understood that producing NSX is one bold move—a make it or break it motion.
Acura NSX is the very embodiment of a modern supercar for daily use. NSX’s cabin brings can truly rave high-end minimalists. The materials used are leather and Alcantara, with the latter helping the driver and passenger when it comes to grip. The instrument cluster sports both analogue and digital dials. The infotainment system highlights the 7-inch touchscreen display; while the standard audio system features eight speakers and a subwoofer.
Placed behind the cockpit is a 75° twin-turbocharged, 3.5L V6 that is said to be exclusively designed for NSX. In between the front wheels is the pair of motor units known as Twin Motor Unit (TMU) that can bring out 36 horsepower and 54 pound-foot of torque.
There are 4 drive modes in NSX—Quiet, Sport, Sport Plus and Track. The Quiet mode lets you drive away in silence if you go easy on the pedal from 0-40 mph. Sport mode, the default one, lets you utilize the many-ratio transmission to its top gear for fuel economy of 20 MPG. For flair of adventure, you can easily adjust your console to Sport Plus which easily summons 573 horsepower. And to see the dream supercar you spend your $155,000 into, Track mode should be switched on.
