2017 Acura NSX is an attempt from Honda’s luxury division to topple Nissan GT-R, which is currently by far the hottest supercar that comes from Japan. This is the continuation of the traditional NSX line up that stop its production in 2005 and now after 10 years we have the new generation model.
2017 Acura NSX Review
New model was presented on the 2015 North American Auto Show in Detroit. This model is going to slot between current NSX hybrid supercar and the Honda S660 .
It brings all the super performance car from its class usually have. Its main competition is the already mentioned Nissan GT-R, then there are several Ferrari supercars and Porsche 911 and Chevrolet Corvette.
Exterior of 2017 Acura NSX
When it comes to exterior styling new model looks a lot like its concept version that came out in 2013. It has almost the same nose, really massive grille that is the most emphasized front fascia element and bumper configuration that leaves air dams almost intact.
Headlights are made with full LED technology with six smaller LED lights and LED stripe that goes all across the headlight.
There are different kinds of ornaments and blades in the grille area some of which are made strictly for the aerodynamics and some other are there for the looks.
Of we look the car from the profile we can see a lot of nice character lines and few vents sticking from the side. In the back there is a powerful looking exhaust tip and elegantly designed taillights.
2017 Acura NSX comes with plenty of premium Alcantra leather inside the cabin and there’s also some carbon fiber to make the cabin even more luxurious looking.
Some carbon fiber bits from the 2013 concept version are replaced with an aluminum ornaments that are also light weight and in some cases they look even better than the original carbon fiber parts.
Central console is very user friendly and it comes with some extra buttons and knobs placed around the touch screen display that comes with the infotainment system, but it also can be used for audio controls.
Acura 2017 Engine
When it comes to performance 2017 Acura NSX comes with twin turbocharged V6 engine that is able to produce 550 horsepower at least.
This engine has 3,5 liter displacement and although its output doesn’t sound much, since NSSX is a very light weight car it can reach some really high speeds and nice acceleration.
All models come with nine speed DCT transmission system and this car is able to reach 60 mph in only 3,5 seconds. This is one really fast and furious model for sure.
Price for 2017 Acura NSX
Official pricing for Acura NSX hasn’t been out yet, but there are rumors that the base version of this car will cost around $116,000.
If we add some additional equipment to this price it will leave us with the prices that are in range with the ones of Audi R8 for example.
This car is definitely one of least expensive supercars on the market, and if it wants to compete with Nissan GT-R it needs to cut its prices even lower.
