The original NSX was something that many people called a super-car killer and this wasn’t far from the truth. It was faster than the Ferrari of that period, it was a lot cheaper and also it drove better. The 2016 Acura NSX promises to closely follow the footsteps of the original, so expect a cheap, fast and unforgiving super-car that will not only beat its competitors, it will do it in style. We can expect that new Acura NSX 2016 will come to the car market till the end of 2015.
2016 Acura NSX redesign
The 2016 Acura NSX exterior will take inspiration from the old Honda NSX but with some modern touches as well as Acura inspired cues. Expect a mean looking machine which will be as low and just as wide as the current super cars. The back of the Acura NSX 2016 will feature a retractable wing while the front will get an active front bumper with automatic aerodynamic elements. All of these should make from the NSX a real looker. From what it seems, it will sit on 19 inch rims at the front and 20 inch rims at the back with high performance tires all around it.
Inside the cabin 2016 Acura NSX will most likely get its own look with no real influences from Acura. This is needed because Acura simply does not have any car which could compete with the looks of Porsche and Ferrari. Standard equipment will most likely include sport seats, automatic climate control, satellite navigation, leather upholstery and a multifunctional steering wheel similar which will likely use technology from the F1.
Acura NSX 2016 specs
Engine wise, the 2016 Acura NSX will get a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 which will be coupled to three electric motors, 2 in the front and one at the back. The total power is expected to be well over 500 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque. Some say that it will even provide more power than the current GT-R, meaning more than 600 horsepower. Thanks to those electric motors, it will have a massive advantage as far as the fuel consumption and low-end torque comes. The expected average fuel consumption will be more than 30 MPG while the actual performance of the car should be close, if not better, to the GT-R. Expect a top speed of over 200 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 MPH time of less than 3 seconds. Some reports even suggest that Acura NSX 2016 will be capable of running in a fully electric mode which would put it on the same level with the newest hyper-car from Porsche.
2016 Acura NSX release date and price
The 2016 Acura NSX price hasn’t been announced yet but many people expect it to cost around $125,000 which is almost 50% cheaper than its rivals. This should already make a winner out of it. The Acura NSX 2016 release date should be some time in 2015, most likely at the end of the year.
