2016 Honda NSX

2016 Honda NSX
The production-spec 2016 Honda NSX has been introduced under the Acura badge at the Detroit Motor Show 2015. The second-generation NSX has experienced a drawn out design and development process and comes 25 years after the original NSX debuted.
Powering the 2016 Honda NSX is a twin-turbocharged double overhead cam V6 engine mated to a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission and joined with no less than three electric motors. One of those electric motors powers the rear wheels while the other two send power to the front wheels to make the 2016 Honda NSX all-wheel drive. Performance specifications have yet to be revealed nor have horsepower and torque ratings.

Another key utilisation of the new Honda NSX is its Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All Wheel Drive system which includes four different driving modes of Quiet, Sport, Sport+ and Track. When the Japanese supercar is switched between these modes, the engine, electric motors, transmission and chassis will all respond in different ways with Quiet mode seeing the car powered purely by electric power and the other three seeing the electric motors working in conjunction with the V6 engine.
Build wise, the 2016 Honda NSX includes a carbon fibre floor as well as a space frame made from aluminium as well as high-strength steel. Fully independent front and rear suspension also features and to keep weight down, the suspension components are made from aluminium. Honda has opted for 19×8.5 inch wheels at the front and 20×11 wheels at the rear with Continental tyres that are 245/35 and 295/30.
In the cabin, the 2016 Honda NSX makes use of a complete TFT instrument panel which displays all the necessary vehicle dynamics. The power button for the hybrid powertrain is then found in the centre console while handcrafted leather is also present.

Compared to the Honda NSX Concept unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show two years ago, the production-spec car actually features dramatically different proportions to support the twin-turbo V6, three electric motors and 9-speed gearbox. Consequently, it is 3 inches longer than the concept while also being 1 inch wider. Consequently, the second-generation Honda NSX is also longer, wide and slightly taller than the 2005 NSX.
Discussing the car, chief engineer and global development leader of the new Honda NSX, Ted Klaus, said, “Our global team embraced the challenge to create a new sports car experience, leveraging new technology to deliver incredibly vivid performance in a vehicle that responds intuitively and immediately to the will of the driver. The NSX delivers pinnacle supercar performance, with zero-delay acceleration and exhilarating, confidence-inspiring driving dynamics.”
