2016 Acura NSX Burns to the Ground on the Nurburgring
Jul 24, 2014 - 9:47 AM - by |\|SX
Sadly the NSX burned to the ground, I just hope this is not something that happens with production models.

Something went horribly wrong when Acura took the new NSX out for testing on the Nurburgring.

The company took its prototype mid-engined hybrid supercar out for testing at the famous German track this week and it didn’t go well. Word from our spy photographer is that the driver wasn’t harmed, but the same is – obviously – not true of the car. Honda is using its new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission in tandem with a hybrid powertrain to propel the car. Two electric motors power the front wheels while a third electric motor works in the rear.

That combination is expected to produce somewhere in the ballpark of 500 to 525 hp, although Acura hasn’t officially confirmed those numbers. A company spokesman wasn’t available to comment on the incident at the time this story was published.

Production of the new NSX is expected to begin in February, 2015 at Honda’s Marysville, Ohio facility.

Production Acura NSX Spied Nurburgring Testing
Jul 22, 2014 - 12:18 PM - by AutoGuide.com

New spy photos rolled in today showing a car we have been waiting on for quite some time, the all-new 2016 Acura NSX.

The first next-generation Acura NSX concept made its debut in Detroit back in 2012, and the car spotted today at the Nürburgring seems to carry over about 95 percent of that original design. A few noticeable changes are a slightly revised front fascia and new hood vents over the front wheel arches.

A mid-mounted twin-turbo V6 provides grunt through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, but that won’t be the only power source. Each front wheel will have its own electric motor powering it as part of Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive Setup, known as SH-AWD. There will also be another electric motor in the rear and all together, the system should add up to produce around 500 hp.

Honda has set the bar high for the new NSX, benchmarking it against cars like the Ferrari 458, McLaren MP4-12C and the Audi R8. Acura previously said that the car will cost somewhere in Porsche 911 territory, which carries a range starting from about $80,000 up to $180,000. Wherever the price tag lands, Acura claims that this will be a great performance bargain.
