1991 Acura Nsx Engine Bay
The 2012 Acura NSX engine will probably be a V6, with a cylinder capacity of 3.5 or 3.7 liter; the power output will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that in its turn is connected to the rear-wheel drive. The Acura NSX also features two electric motors, for a total hybrid power output of 400 horsepower.
What is so special about this 2012 Acura NSX is its hybrid drivetrain and some new Acura NSX accessories. This may seem odd for a supercar, but bear in mind, that the Acura NSX engine will still deliver over 400 horsepower. Due to this power we expect the new Acura NSX to perform well both on the racetrack and on the road.

Las Vegas is a crazy, crazy place. This is common knowledge already, thanks to Vegas' healthy reputation as the headquarters for sin. But don't think for a second that alcohol and gambling are the only after-school specials going down in excess. The town is just as much a haven for speed addicts as it is for poker addicts. Nestled away from the bright lights and billboards of the tourist-ridden main strip is Factor X Racing, one of the nation's premiere builders of turbocharged Acura NSX's. It's not uncommon to see Factor X-tuned mid-engine rocket ships cruising through the streets of Las Vegas, all of which are packing north of 500 hp.
This blue 1993 Acura NSX, owned by Vegas resident Paul Siu, is outfitted with Factor X's FX500 turbo package, which is designed to push more than 500 hp. Two years ago, before Sui seriously started this build, his NSX was much more mild. Acura's flagship provided massive thrills at first, but an addiction to power soon took over and mere bolt-on parts wouldn't cut it. As an employee of the extravagant Bellagio resort and casino, Siu is used to seeing his fair share of high rollers. But when your neighbors start coming home in Porsche 911 Turbos and Lamborghini Gallardos, you know it's time to step up the game on your NSX.
Siu started the build on his NSX by laying the supporting foundation for high horsepower first, and then adding the turbochargers later. Smart man. Bigger tires would be necessary to contain the upgrade in power, and Siu didn't cheap out. A set of 225/25/18 front and ber-wide 315/30/18 rear Michelin Pilot Sport tires were stretched on to custom Burning Black Work VS-SS wheels. The front ten-spoke beauties are 8 inches wide, but the rears measure a whopping 11 inches across. Filling up the void behind the front Work wheels is a four-piston AP Racing big brake kit, which is an especially wise investment considering how fast this NSX really is.
