2019 NSX SH-AWD.
PRECISION CRAFTED PERFORMANCE, the Acura mantra, served as both the philosophical approach and physical benchmark for NSX. Thus a wholly new supercar was brought to life: an exotic sports car born of racing DNA, equal parts adrenaline and composure.*FROM ITS ULTRA-RIGID SPACE FRAME to dynamically agile Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™, the chassis is the super skeleton that supports all NSX systems.*NSX SPORTS HYBRID POWER UNIT: Precisely engineered to produce 573-hp, 476 lb-ft of torque66 and a top speed of 191 MPH.*DYNAMICS BEGINS WITH PHYSICS AND IMAGINATION, building and testing new ideas while subjecting conventional wisdom to skeptical reexamination. Motion, mass and geometry are applied through a lens of innovation, fine-tuned such that inventiveness and proven principles come to coexist for an unequaled driving experience.*BUT BEYOND THE SCIENCE IS A LESS MEASURABLE GOAL – to achieve dynamics that create a sense of connectedness, as if the car were an extension of one's self. To create ki, the intangible force that makes a person or thing what it is; in NSX, the synergy of man and machine.
*IT'S THE FIRST OF ITS KIND. NSX is the first supercar powered by a bespoke Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel DriveTM, 573-hp66 power unit that is an absolute game-changer. NSX Engine power and direct electric torque combine for a new kind of dynamic performance, not just in acceleration, but in steering and braking too. This is interwoven dynamics in the purest sense: exhilarating performance powered by precision.*IT GROWLS AND YOU'RE GONE. Speed, power and amazing ingenuity live inside this clever beast: a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged, 75-degree, 3.5-liter DOHC V-6 engine with dry sump lubrication. It's the product of countless days and nights of relentless engineering, perfected on the track.
THE RACE-READY 9-SPEED DCT brings it all to the table. With an electronically-operated wet dual-clutch, high-rigidity shift forks, double-cone synchronizers and electronic shift actuator, shift timing is precisely synchronized with power unit torque – and that means super-fast, smooth-as-silk shifting.
Working in concert, the engine and electric motors produce a combined peak 573-hp and 476 lb-ft of torque66, which translates into a G-crushing 0 – 60 MPH in 2.7 seconds, and a heart-pounding track top speed of 191 MPH.
THE SYNERGY OF MAN AND MACHINE BEGINS HERE, where the sense of NSX as an extension of self becomes tangible. The wheel grasp, the pedal feel, the seat designed to support its driver through even the most extreme maneuvers. It's a command center where intuitive controls, unobstructed views and world-class acoustics make every drive extraordinary.
SIMPLICITY OF FORM AND ELEMENTS ESSENTIAL TO THE SPACE form the foundation of NSX cockpit design. Minimalist in its aesthetic and spacious in its dimensions, the NSX interior was precisely engineered to create a richly supportive domain for the driver – even those whose height is in the 95th percentile.
SEAT MATERIALS WERE SELECTED FOR THEIR PERFORMANCE. The aggressively-shaped bolsters are smooth leather for ease of ingress/egress. Alcantara® is at the center of the sports seats to provide grip and reduce lateral movement. Key interior surfaces are ergonomically padded to support knees and elbows, providing additional supercar comfort and stability.
IN NSX, THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MAN AND MACHINE plays out in real time with communicative feedback so true and responsive, it feels like intuition. Steering, acceleration and braking are executed with something more than fidelity – not simply obeying cues but maintaining a continual readiness in sync with driver awareness.
NSX IS MORE THAN ONE SUPERCAR. Its dynamic range flexes to reflect its driver's mood, responding to every input with absolute fidelity. Weekend touring or competitive tracking, commuting or negotiating a mountain pass, it a
