Drive Wire: Acura Releases Specs for New NSX
Three years ago, Acura teased a new NSX. Now, the time has finally come to see the specs! We know almost everything about the much-anticipated mid-engine supercar, which is set to go on sale in 2016. Honda’s heavy hitter will use a hybrid propulsion system with three electric motors and a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6. Two electric motors will drive each front wheel and a third will be linked directly to the rear axle to prevent any delay in putting the power down. When all four power sources are combined, the NSX will make a mighty 573 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. If you have the patience to wait until next year and over $150,000 to burn, run on down to your dealer.
