With the NSX finally heading to dealers sometime in 2016 after years and years of waiting, you might think you know all there is to know about the newest Acura. You probably don't.
1. The NSX Doesn't Have an Interior.
Calm down, yes we know it has seats, steering wheel and a radio, but we're talking semantics here. Acura is calling the interior a "Human Support Cockpit". The name comes from the ergonomically focused design, from the steering wheel to the sight lines, Acura says it's all been optimized for a human-centric experience.
2. It has the Lowest COG in Class
Despite its status as a mass produced sports car the NSX still sports the segment's lowest centre of gravity thanks to the engine’s wide V-angle of 75 degrees, a dry sump lubrication system and an optimally designed and placed fuel tank.
3. The NSX has Two Fuel Tanks
Speaking of optimally designed fuel tanks, the NSX actually uses two of them. They're made of a specialized resin that allowed Acura a ridiculous amount of flexibility in terms of shape and location. The twin tanks sit between the engine and the battery.
4. Be Quiet
Acura included a Quiet mode to go along with the more traditional Sport, Sport+ and Track. Quiet mode prioritizes electric driving, minimizes cabin sound and maximizes efficiency. When the motor is needed engine speed is limited to 4,000 rpm and the active exhaust/intake valves remain shut.
