Nothing says supercar freedom like an F16 fighter jet. Acura’s 2018 NSX flagship vehicle is sculpted after the acute aerodynamic perfection of a military-grade fighter jet by designers Ken Okuyama and Shigeru Uehara. Comparisons to the NSX are easily drawn with the dome-like glass ‘cockpit’ area, offering unparalleled visibility in its class. On the pioneer 1989 prototype, NSX stood for New Sportscar eXperimental. With modern NSX models standing for New Sportscar Experience, the Acura NSX nomenclature is not merely a play on words, but an expression of artistic intentions.
A manifestation of technical ingenuity, the 2018 NSX has quite an impressive back story. The first-generation NSX boasted the first all-aluminum ‘monocoque’ body in a mass-production car, where chassis and body are integrally designed. This resulted in a lighter body that is quickly spurred to action, especially when paired with Honda’s first application of their cutting-edge VTEC technology in a high-performance engine. With rankings in the top 5 of both luxury and hybrid categories, the 2018 Acura NSX is a truly unique specimen and representation of automotive ingenuity.
The performance and handling of the Acura NSX are easily it’s top-selling factors. For daring and joyful drivers, your 2018 NSX can deliver a performance to contend with top-of-the-line supercars, gifting an output of 573hp, one of the highest among the luxury sportscar base engine class. Compared to the competing base 2018 Maserati Quattroporte models, the 2018 Acura NSX has a 149hp advantage and even tops the 523hp range leader, the performance Quattroporte GTS. Although, how the 2018 Acura NSX gets there is where the real story lies.
The world-renowned hybrid powertrain of the 2018 NSX model is composed of a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, a lithium-ion battery, three electric motors and 9-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. These refined hybrid powertrain components seamlessly collaborate for a higher level of fuel efficiency without sacrificing a supercar, world-class standard of power. The 2018 Acura NSX is recognized for its dream-like handling by a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system.
A noteworthy feature that sets the NSX apart from its competitors is that not only is it equipped with a hybrid powertrain, but it comes with an all-wheel-drive system, a rare feature of a luxury supercar. Where most others only feature a rear-wheel-drive option, the NSX is firing at every corner, with incredible aerodynamics and downforce contributing to a knockout performance and top of the line acceleration and handling. High-performance Brembo brakes keep its power in check while steering with absolute precision, and acceleration is nothing short of instantaneous. From a full-stop or to gain momentum, the hyper-responsive NSX is beastly on the highway while it softly purrs on the city grid.
Rare and coveted, offering an unparalleled driving experience. The 2018 NSX is a cut above the rest, a true supercar with a hybrid twist.
