2013 Acura NSX Engine


2013 Acura NSX Engine. The 2012 Acura NSX will use a very powerful engine, although the engine to be used by the car is not you know, but there is speculation that states that the car will use a 3.2 liter engine that is able to produce 290 horsepower, and there are also rumors stating that this car will use a 3.0 liter engine with 252 horsepower. Whatever the engine will be used, it is promised to have above average engines, as well the engine will be able to reach more than 150 miles per hour; which is also why there is no detailed picture of the 2012 Acura NSX while the car is running, it runs very fast.


VEHICLE LAYOUT Mid-engine, AWD, 2-pass, 2-door coupe ENGINE 3.7L DOHC 24-valve V-6 + 2 front and 1 rear electric motors; 480 hp comb* TRANSMISSION 7-speed twin-cl auto CURB WEIGHT 3100 lb* WHEELBASE 101.4 in LENGTH X WIDTH X HEIGHT 170.5 x 74.6 x 45.7 in 0-60 MPH 3.0 sec* EPA CITY/HWY FUEL ECON Not yet rated

Wonder how accurate this information will end up being. 480hp to 3100 lbs.

0-60 in 3 seconds estimated. That is pretty quick.

to think of it 3100lbs is actually pretty light. A honda accord is about 3400 lbs.

The 3100 lbs and likely lots of torque at low rpms (thanks for electric motors) might be what contributes to a 0-60 of 3 seconds.

Well i really don't know whether that information might be correct or not . But surely know one thing 3100 is a lot of rotational torque . And would definitley boost up in 0-60 in 3.03 seconds .

good chance those electric motors will play a big part in it's 1/4 mile times. Electric motors are known to deliver tons of torque right away.

I think if it wasn't for Honda's involvement in F1 we wouldn't have an NSX.

i saw in motor trend (current issue) that it's also going to Twin Turb6o! They estimate 400+ bhp from the v6, plus electric motors, to make a combined 560 bhp.. so that might be how the 0-60 time is 3 seconds.
