2016 Acura NSX Spotted in the Wild

11

It appears that Acura is benchmarking the new NSX against some of the world’s finest sports cars.

Photos of the 2016 Acura NSX out in the wild were posted onto the internet, showing the Japanese automaker’s hybrid sports car driving with a Porsche 911 and sitting beside an Audi R8. While the NSX has already been seen at auto shows and even racing up Pikes Peak, this is the first sighting of these production-spec cars on the streets.

Revealed in production form earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show, the 2016 Acura NSX features a hybrid powertrain that will make at least 550 hp, although exact final specifications have not yet been revealed. It is powered by a twin-turbo, V6 engine and will feature the company’s Super Handling AWD technology.

Expect more information on the 2016 Acura NSX to surface as it gets closer to going on sale later this year.

Update: Acura has posted up that it’s taking the Acura NSX on tour and is promoting it on social media using #AcuraNSXOnTour. As the hybrid sports car undergoes road testing in the U.S. throughout the summer, the automaker will be making numerous stops so that enthusiasts can get an up close and personal look at the NSX.

    Stunning, drivetrain wise: most similar to the Porsche 918. Motor wise most common with the future FORD GT. Looks even better in the above pics vs show car. Red suits it well. I personally find it way better looking than the New Corvette. Great work Acura!

  • Rickers

    Looks. So. Good!

  • Lucsious

    Well of course it’s better looking than a friggen Corvette.

  • Eric Cameron

    Looks great! Hope it sells well. Would love to see a $40K Honda version for those looking for an affordable Jap alternative.

  • herandnow

    ugghhhhh, Please don’t use the word Jap, it’s the same as using N word to describe African Americans. And The NSX will be at least 4X $40K. So you have no hope of getting an NSX in any iteration.

  • Eric Cameron

    I had no idea. Oops.
    If they can make something to compete against American sports cars or something like the STI range, that would be neat. That’s what I’m trying to get at.

  • scur

    lol 40k, you do realize the ’90s nsx is around 40k itself. I think these would be around 80 – 120k haha

    haut!

    All this means to me is that I won’t be able to afford one. I don’t think another expensive supercar is what Honda needs.
