It's a great car for drivers who aren't that great on a track. According to him it makes you feel like a spectacular driver and it keeps you from over steering coming out of a corner.

that's what most supercars these days are like anyways, there's so much they control that it takes away most of the things you'd have to worry about with much older cars that didn't have tech as advanced as what we're experiencing this time around.

The Nissan GTR was a good example of this stepping into the whole high end sports car and super car era we're in at the moment

You hear the air intake sound? Does that mean you hear a lot of wind noise?

Why would a car be engineered to let you hear wind noise? That serves absolute no purpose at all.

The air intake is in the engine.

My mistake, I was thinking of the air intake vents in the front of the car. Glad you don't hear much and Acura says it's the quietest vehicle out of its competitors.

Supercar drivers are not racecar drivers. It is great that Honda has made the car for regular drivers, those are the people that will actually be driving the NSX.

Some will want to complain about handling, for example, but I think that Honda made the right decision.

Thanks for the video! Interesting and eye opening review from autoguide.

Does the 4 modes really make a significant different? *Curiousity* :O

I think the quiet mode too but as a race car.. it seems like he the exhaust level didn't please him lol

Quiet, sport, sport-plus, and track modes just progressively increases the the carís aggression level.

Yup, they basically keep it in a range of power and power delivery that allows for it to perform best in those modes. Wouldn't be all that great if we had all the power all the time without any way of better directing it to what we actually need and when we need it.
