2017 Acura NSX will be making its Southern California debut on November 18 at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Acura’s latest offering will be showing up in America’s largest supercar market in a never-seen-before color. The second generation NSX will enter production in Spring 2016.
The 2017 Acura NSX hybrid supercar combines the power of a single combustion engine and three electric motors, taking the combined power output to 573 hp. The combustion engine is a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 gasoline unit that individually produces 500 hp and 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) of torque.
Coming to the electric motors, there is a Twin Motor Unit (TMU) driving the front wheels with output figures of 72 hp and 108 lb.-ft. (146 Nm) of torque. The rear Direct-Drive electric motor is sandwiched between the engine and the gearbox and acts as a generator for the lithium-ion battery pack. This unit is capable of 47 hp and 109 lb.-ft. (148 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through the 9-speed dual-clutch transmission. Performance is brisk with a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time of 3.0 seconds and a top speed touching 191 mph (307 km/h).
Sharing space with the NSX at the show will be its stable mates, the Acura TLX, TLX GT, ILX sport sedan, RLX, RLX Sport Hybrid, RDX and MDX SUV.
