Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place. The moment I really got the 2017 Acura NSX wasn’t when I launched it to highway speed from a standstill in three seconds, egged on by the 573 horsepower soundtrack of two turbos dumping air into a wailing V6 backed by a screaming electric motor whine. It wasn’t the tenth time a pedestrian gave me the thumbs up and told me how awesome it was to look at, and how awesome I was for owning it. (I didn’t correct them.) No, the moment I got it was when I realized I had forgotten I was in a $205,000 mid-engined exotic car at all; when I checked around and marveled at how well I could see out of the cabin, or when I drove over Brooklyn’s pockmarked streets unperturbed thanks to a smooth ride that’s almost unnatural for a supercar. This is what the NSX is. It’s what it was in 1990, and what it is again: a high-end European-style exotic you can live with every day, a race car you can drive to … [Read more...] about The 2017 Acura NSX Is Still The Crazy Fast Spaceship You Can Live With Every Day

It took Acura 15 years to bring back the NSX nameplate in 2017, but the Japanese automaker is giving the hybrid supercar an update after just two years. On Thursday Acura revealed the revised 2019 NSX at Monterey Car Week. It will take a keen eye to discern the 2019 NSX from earlier second-generation cars. Exterior changes are limited to body-color trim on the grille surround, front air intake mesh, and the mesh on the rear bumper. The optional carbon-fiber exterior bits now feature a high-gloss finish. A new Thermal Orange Pearl paint option will ensure everyone sees the NSX coming, and the optional carbon ceramic brakes can be fitted with orange calipers while the standard iron brakes can get red calipers.

Tweet TweetDo you like Acura NSX? Well, if you do and you want one, you have to find out that you missed the start: the first item of production had been auctioned for $1.2 million. I know, it’s 8 times more than it’s price list, but having VIN #001 and being auctioned for charity purposes helped a lot. Barrett-Jackson organized the 45th Anniversary Scottsdale Auction, between 23rd and 31st January 2016. During the previous auctions, the company managed to collect over $84.6 million, all of them for charitable projects and foundations. Acura is donating all of the NSX’s selling price to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground. The winner was Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. It’s not it’s first bidder victory, as he managed to buy first 2015 Corvette Z06, the first 2014 Corvette Stingray and the first 2014 Stingray Convertible. As you probably know, NSX’s production will start this spring, and it’s base price … [Read more...] about First 2017 Acura NSX Sold For $1.2 Million At Auction
Autobild put together a slideshow forecasting various convertibles due to arrive from 2018 to 2023. The long-prophesied Acura NSX roadster graced the first slide, reportedly prepped for market launch later this year at a price of 200,000 euros. That's about 13,000 euros more spendy than the hardtop, a relative bargain. Don't call your Goldman private banker yet, though — that Autobild slide is likely as close as any of us will get to said roadster this year. We've been doing the hokey pokey with the droptop NSX for at least six years now. In 2012 an eager enthusiast corps thought a European patent might have revealed the convertible supercar, only to realize it was Acura protecting Tony Stark's screen gem in The Avengers (pictured). In 2016, Autocar reported that Honda viewed the NSX as a platform for experiment and tests of developing technology that "help [Honda] understand where the brand is going." Those brand explorations meant Honda was "contemplating convertible, … [Read more...] about Acura NSX roadster finally on its way this year?
Les ventes de la Acura NSX sont loin d’être au niveau qu’espérait Honda. Avec l’importante déception à ce chapitre, on apprend que le constructeur japonais lancerait une deuxième version Roadster puis Type R dans le but de revitaliser le modèle. Acura NSX 2017 L’information nous vient de la sérieuse publication allemande Autobild qui soutient qu’avant la fin de 2018 la version cabriolet pourrait se pointer sur les marchés mondiaux. Il faut souligner que la popularité des voitures cabriolets est toujours très fortes et attire beaucoup d’acheteurs, Acura ne devrait donc pas passer à côté de cette opportunité. De plus, on sait qu’Acura prépare un coup puisque depuis quelques semaines, de mystérieuses images du Roadster et de la Type R sont présentent sur internet. Évidemment, on risque fort de proposer également un rafraichissement stylistique à la … [Read more...] about ACTUALITÉ AUTO : Acura NSX Roadster 2019, avant la fin de l’année
