Acura has been filmed testing two NSXs at the Nurburgring despite the supercar having been on sale for about a year now.
The footage shows a silver NSX and a black NSX turning in laps at the infamous Nordschleife. The circuit is typically used by manufacturers to test their pre-production prototypes, so it’s odd that Acura would show up to test a car that’s already on sale. It’s possible Acura is making revisions to the NSX to improve its performance, but some think there’s a lot more going on with these testers.
Acura has been rumored to have a high-performance version of the NSX in the pipeline – potentially called the Type R. It’s possible that Acura is testing the powertrain for this rumored model variant with these unassuming test cars, along with a revised suspension setup and other improvements. This is simply a guess, however, and it’s worth noting that these cars do not look or sound any different than a regular, run-of-the-mill NSX.
