Acura unveils technical information for 2017 NSX

The Acura NSX has been much-anticipated since its introduction at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year. Now, the carmaker has released technical details about the hybrid sports car, including its all-wheel drive platform and planned production for the 2017 model year.

The Acura New Sports eXperience (NSX) was first introduced 25 years ago as a supercar from Honda’s premium brand. At that time, the NSX was a halo car – a top-shelf vehicle whose purpose is largely to promote the company’s excellence. At the time, the NSX was considered a very forward-looking vehicle and won acclaim for its design, engineering, and performance. Today, Acura is aiming for the same goal with the 2017 NSX.

Acura says that four fundamentals drive the new NSX supercar: exterior design and airflow management; interior human-centric design; body form engineering and lightweight materials; and chassis plus drivetrain performance.
