Acura has announced additional launch details for the next-generation 2017 Acura NSX supercar, coming to market next spring. Designed, developed and manufactured in America, the 2017 Acura NSX will have a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $156,000 in the U.S. and will top out at $205,700 when equipped with all available factory features and options.
At the heart of the NSX is a twin-turbo, dry-sump 3.5-liter V6 pumping out 500 horses and 406 lb.-ft. of torque from an engine compartment just aft of the cockpit, augmented by three electric motors, one between the engine and the dual-clutch nine-speed transmission, and one powering each front wheel. The driveline-mounted motor adds 47 hp and 109 lb.-ft. to the rear wheels, while the twin front motors each sing to the tune of 36 horses and 54 lb.-ft.
“The NSX is the pinnacle expression of Acura precision crafted performance and we’re thrilled to take the next step toward bringing it to market,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura Division. “We’re creating new space within the supercar realm, pushing the envelope beyond the conventional thinking about supercars – just like the original NSX.”
Customer order taking for the new NSX will begin on Feb. 25, 2016 at authorized NSX retailers, in concert with the launch of a vehicle configurator on Acura.com. The configurator will be the first engagement point for customers interested in exploring the process of ordering a vehicle from an authorized NSX retailer and enthusiasts who want to configure their dream NSX. Once customers have customized their vehicle online, they can schedule an appointment with an authorized NSX retailer to finalize the order.
