Aug 17, 2015 - 11:49 AM - by Acura NSX News


During Monterey Car Week Acura took the opportunity to detail the combinations available, as well as showing the NSX in two new paints, Nouvelle Blue Pearl and Berlina Black.

Acura says there will be 8 paint choices from launch, alongside Nouvelle Blue Pearl and Berlina Black Acura will offer the familiar Valencia Red, Rivazza Red, Copse Green Metallic, Matte White, Pearl White and Silver. Complimenting those will be 4 upholstery choices: Saddle, Orchid, Red or Black, available in all leather or leather and faux suede.



Acura will also offer 3 wheel choices from the factory as well as an option or two at the dealer level. Smoked Y Spokes will be standard and an Interwoven wheel available in 2 different finishes. 19 inches in the front 20 in the rear.

Also during Monterey Acura showed off the Carbon Exterior Package for the NSX, which features a carbon front spoiler, side sills, diffuser and exhaust finisher. Additionally shoppers can opt for a carbon roof and a carbon fibre engine cover.

Acura still remains coy on when the final option list and content of packages will become available.

Honda S1000 Imminent?
Aug 12, 2015 - 1:47 PM - by Acura NSX News


Good news sports fans, American Honda is considering adding the S660 to the American lineup.

Speaking to Edmunds, Executive VP John Mendel said "We're looking at it intently for North America, we want some spice in the lineup."

Some two feet shorter then the MX-5, the diminuitive kei would be a spectacle on American streets, although it is just as wide as the Mazda. Somehow they managed to build a mid engine, RWD roadster out of those dimensions, and gift it a favourable 45/55 weight distribution.

Mendel did say that several issues would need to be addressed before it becomes viable, namely upgrading the 63 hp, 660 cc three cylinder. Rumor has it that Honda could bore the triple out to 1.0L for North America.

Yet as Mendel adds "It's got to be commercially viable. It's got to serve a purpose from a brand standpoint, what does it do for the brand?"

Well, what does it?

NSX GT on Track for 2017
Aug 10, 2015 - 2:27 PM - by Acura NSX News


Honda Performance Development continues to develop the new NSX into a full blown racing machine.

HPD boss Steve Ericksen told Sportscar365 that they're currently debating weather they should do a GT3 or GTE platform. “It was one of the reasons I was at [Road America], to try and get a sense of what the options are and how well those options fit with American Honda’s plans of promoting the car.”

Should HPD choose the GT3 route the NSX would replace the less-then-2-year-old TLX GT, saying the work to transition the TLX to a fully homologated GT3 car would be far too daunting.

“We’re looking at our options and one of them is to go two-wheel drive,” he said. “It’s just how big of a tear up is it? You could disconnect your front-wheel drive but is that really going to make a good race car?

“That’s the question we’re looking at right now. We need it to be competitive because otherwise, why be there?”


Eriksen went on to admit the importance of committing to a long term presence in American sports car racing.

“Certainly America is likely to be the biggest market for the [NSX], so it makes sense to race it here,” he said.

“We’re still trying to understand what specific series suits us best. Based on the rules, we have to work backwards to see how much time we need to prepare.”


Unfortunately it appears that the NSX GT will be run minus its hybrid heart. “I think the reality is that the series aren’t ready for that yet, and I’m not sure the teams are, either,” Eriksen said. “That adds a level of complication. We certainly raced hybrids before in Japan. The CRZ raced as a hybrid, the Super GTs have been outfitted as hybrids at times. We know what to do but it doesn’t seem like the other manufacturers are ready for that yet."

He was cautious, saying not to expect the NSX GT until 2017 at the earliest.

Sprint to the clouds with Acura's NSX
Jul 16, 2015 - 2:23 PM - by Acura NSX News


While the NSX spent most of its time at Pikes Peak as the official pace car, it wasn't all work for the latest Japanese sportscar.

Acura installed some 24 cameras along the mountain course as the NSX amde a spirited sprint to the top. Acuras people were quick to note that the Hybrid would not at all come close to its limits, the event was intended as a demonstration.

Just because the NSX wasn't on the edge doesn't mean Acura didn't put on a show. Contrary to that. The rear end breaks loose, sliding subtly through corners, not to mention the twin turbo V6's howling sounds reverberating off Colorado mountain walls.

2 red NSX's spotted out in the wild being bench marked against an Audi R8 and Porsche 911!

Quote:
It appears that Acura is benchmarking the new NSX against some of the world’s finest sports cars.

Photos of the 2016 Acura NSX out in the wild were posted onto the internet, showing the Japanese automaker’s hybrid sports car driving with a Porsche 911 and sitting beside an Audi R8. While the NSX has already been seen at auto shows and even racing up Pikes Peak, this is the first sighting of these production-spec cars on the streets.
