The 2017 Acura NSX Performance Offers Elegance and Precision
Sport Hybrid Drivetrain Performance
The world of automobile manufacturing is changing rapidly, and high-performance supercars are changing right along with it! The 2017 NSX possesses a Sport Hybrid drivetrain that makes use of three electric motors, and that makes the NSX a 21st-century innovation. When you activate Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, you’ll receive targeted bursts of power from a front-mounted twin motor unit and a direct drive motor that’s connected to the NSX’s clutch. This feature makes it easy to glide into sharp turns with exceptional precision, even in the harshest conditions. Its Power Drive Unit (PDU) sends energy to these motors, and charges the NSX’s Intelligent Power Unit, which coordinates the functioning of these new technologies!
Nevertheless, fans of classic sports cars will find a lot to love in the newly redesigned NSX, which is primarily powered by a 3.5L DOHC Twin Turbo V6 engine and controlled through a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission. When all of these system components are operating in concert, the NSX roars down the road with a total system output of 573 hp and 476 lb-ft of torque.
- Sport Hybrid Technology: The NSX’s incredible handling capability is made possible by its Sport Hybrid engineering. In Launch Mode, the NSX’s direct drive motor responds immediately to your touch and can send you darting forward with 47 hp. Each of the power sources in the NSX’s Twin Motor Unit offers 36 additional horsepower to each of your front wheels when they need it.
- Primary Engine: Alone, the NSX’s hand-assembled engine is capable of generating 500 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque and possesses a compression ratio of 10.0:1. Variable Timing Control (VTC) and dry sump lubrication ensure that your engine is always operating at its best when you activate the NSX’s twin single-scroll turbochargers.
- Super Handling All-Wheel Drive: The NSX’s hybrid engineering facilitates its Super Handling All-Wheel Drive capability. Since each of the NSX’s front wheels can be independently controlled and powered, its internal computer can help you get the most out of the NSX’s capabilities.
- Integrated Dynamics System: You can vary the NSX’s output and performance by utilizing its Integrated Dynamics System. This system lets you choose among four distinct driving modes: Quiet, Sport, Sport Plus, and Track. No matter how you like to drive, we’re sure you’ll find something to appreciate in each of these settings.
- Advanced Braking Systems: The NSX’s brakes are just as responsive as its drivetrain. In the NSX, high-performance Brembo hydraulic brakes work alongside a regenerative hybrid braking system in order to provide drivers complete control with almost no delay.
An Optimized Exterior
Acura’s supercars are some of the most complex machines being made today, and the 2017 NSX’s striking appearance is the result of a perfected scientific formula for great performance. The NSX exhibits a fusion of elegance and precision across every aspect of its design, from its ultra-rigid multi-material frame to its aerodynamically designed exterior panels. Its all-aluminum subframe and suspension help the NSX to maintain a low center of gravity with minimal pitch and roll, so you can feel comfortable when you’re pushing the drivetrain to its limits.
- Multi-Material Construction: The NSX’s aluminum and carbon fiber frame is both light and strong, and its ultra-rigid design is the foundation of both greater safety and heightened performance. Acura engineers were able to include two never-before-seen technologies on the Acura NSX’s frame: a steel 3DQ A-PILLAR and aluminum ablation castings.
- Aerodynamic Design: Thousands of thousands of scientific tests have shaped the exterior carbon panels of the NSX. This vehicle doesn’t just cut through oncoming wind; it uses its specialized air intake valves to turn the wind to its advantage.
- All-Aluminum Suspension: The NSX’s all-aluminum suspension enables it to glide over the road with ease. Even at high speeds, your NSX will keep you steady with third-generation magnetorheological dampers that receive information from the road more than 1,000 times per second.
