New gen Acura NSX hybrid supercar after 25 years at 2015 NAIAS
New-gen Acura NSX is a driver-centric supercar as it puts the wheelman ahead of every strand of its design DNA. So in many ways, it is radically different from most of the supercars out there; Acura NSX has always known to be very intimate with its master.
The mid-engine hybrid supercar harnesses juice from an all-new power plant, comprising of a twin-turbocharged 75-degree DOHC V6 engine and a three-electric motor Sport Hybrid system. Transmission duty is carried out by a 9-speed Dual Clutch Transmission system.
To fit this massive powertrain and transmission system into the Acura NSX, the Concept model unveiled in 2012 had to be lengthened by 3 inches and widened by 1 inch. Compared to 2005 model, production version of next gen Acura NSX is longer by 45 mm, wider by 130 mm and taller by 45 mm; wheelbase is also extended significantly at 2,630 mm. Fully independent all-aluminum front and rear suspension mounts ContiSportContact high performance Continental tires on aluminium alloy wheels. There are 245/35Z R19 up front and 295/30Z R20 at the rear.
