New Honda NSX – a Super Hybrid Stunner of Function & FormLast Updated: January 1, 2019
The new Honda NSX is a unique blend of sporting excitement with executive-class comfort and convenience. Fasten your seatbelts for our overview of the NSX’s most distinctive features.
BREATHTAKING seems the most appropriate one-word review for the breathtaking new Honda NSX (or “New Sports eXperience” to give the car its full title), which is marketed in North America as the Acura NSX.
A hybrid sports car, the new Honda NSX is powered by a 3.5l twin-turbo V6 engine and three electric motors, and nine-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic transmission. Its body is made from aluminium, high-strength steel, and a number of ground-breaking world-first rigid and lightweight materials.
With pricing available only on request, the new Honda NSX may be an ownership prospect only for committed motoring enthusiasts. The first NSX production model was auctioned by collectable car auctioneer Barrett-Jackson in January 2016, with the winning $1.2m bid — by Rick Hendrick of Hendrick Motorsports and the current NASCAR team owner — donated to charity.
However, the sleek, sporty appearance, outstanding performance and ground-breaking production techniques (and hybrid eco-friendliness) makes the vehicle powerfully connect with the imaginations of anyone who enjoys life behind the wheel.
This stunning new Honda NSX is a supercar in every sense of the term, combining sophistication and luxury with the thrill of sports-level performance. Here is a brief summary of why the car is a winner across the board.
1. Design & Style
THE NSX has been designed to provide a perfect, balanced equilibrium of function and function. The carmaker’s craftsman ship is a satisfying blend of strength and agility. The new Honda NSX has been created using cutting-edge manufacturing processes, to create a strong, robust and dramatic on-road presence, while maximising down-force and not sacrificing responsive handling.
2. Space & Comfort
The stunning sports interior in the new Honda NSX puts the driver at the heart of this breathtaking car, instantly connecting the motorist to a selection of four different dynamic driving modes (quiet, sports, sports+, and track). The configuration gives the car a predominantly sports feel, although the sheer quality of the fitout, with its soft seating and upholstery, in addition to convenient storage and leg room, also give it a degree of comfort and convenience that you would expect from a luxury business car.
WITH several modes at the driver’s fingertips,it is easy to progressively dial up the dynamic characteristics of the NSX, tailored to individual desire. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto operating systems that can be fully synchronised to phone, operating photos, contacts and more couldn’t be easier. Honda CONNECT can also be upgraded to include GARMIN satellite navigation.
INSTANT response, chassis rigidity, tuned suspension and precise weight distribution combined with the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive system will leave no disappointment for any driver. The supercar can go from 0-60 mph in just over 3 seconds and reach a top speed of a staggering 191 mph.
