New Acura Nsx Review and Concept

The Honda NSX, or Acura NSX, is a sports car that was produced between 1990 and 2005 by the Japanese automaker Honda. It is equipped with a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, powered by an all-aluminium V6 gasoline (petrol) engine featuring Honda’s Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system.

When the Acura Advanced Sports Car Concept made its debut at Detroit in 2007, it became evident that a new Acura NSX would not be available in 2008.  Now, a Honda official has confirmed to Ward's Auto that the next generation Acura NSX will debut in 2010.

“We are developing it without any delay, so most probably we will have it in the period we already promised,” American Honda President and CEO Tetsuo Iwamura told a Ward's Auto reporter.

Previously, Honda CEO Takeo Fukui had said the car would come out between 2008 and 2009.  In a 2005 speech, Fukui had said Honda would like to introduce a V-10 sports car "in three to four years."  When the Advanced Sports Car Concept was shown off in Detroit, Fukui said a production version would be introduced at the October Tokyo Motor Show.

Despite the pressure placed on Honda by Nissan, which had planned - and succeded - in introducing their GT-R at Tokyo, Honda was unable to complete their production model.  Rumors have since surfaced that an unenthusiastic responce to the concept sent the model back to the engineers for a reworking.  The concept was designed by Acura's Los Angeles-based design team.

The end result is likely that the introduction of the Acura brand to Japan will be delayed, which could mean Americans might get the first shot at the NSX.  If Honda retains similar specs as the Acura Advanced Sports Car Concept, then you can expect the new Acura NSX to be a supercar with a front-mounted V-10, and a highly-tuned rear-wheel drive version of Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system.

Acura Advanced Sports Car Concept bears all the necessary design elements of a proper sports car: sharp, aggressive edges, a low and wide silhouette, a slightly phallic side profile, and of course, a rear window that stands somewhere between hardly usable and nonexistent.

A new version of Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) will favor the rear wheels to keep enthusiasts happy, but the front wheels go into action when the first inevitable four-wheel power slide happens. The ASCC rides on a 108.8-inch wheelbase with an overall length of 181.5 inches, and was designed by Acura’s L.A.-based American design team. We must say, they’ve done a much better job here than with the sedan concept shown at the 2006 Los Angeles show. No word on when Acura’s next sports car will go into production, but it won’t been soon enough.


The revelation of the new 2011 Acura NSX as a sports car off of Honda’s lineup attracted lots of rumors and speculations as auto enthusiasts were thrilled to learn about what was in store for this vehicle model. There are several other sketchy aspects to the 2011 Acura NSX such as the incorporation of a rear-wheel drive system instead of the putative Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive that was featured in the ASCC. The 2011 Acura NSX could possibly become an engineering showcase, just like the mid-engine original model release. You can therefore enjoy a sports-car function on the cockpit with lots of multi-adjustable features fitting of a luxury sports car such as adjustable sports seats, leather upholstered seats and interiors with either carbon fiber or aluminum accents, high and nearly flat windows, navigation system and rearview camera.

The 2011 Acura NSX is expected to release this year, hence there are several estimates released for this vehicle model in terms of pricing. More details are expected to come out for this sports car model type as the release draws near.

The car will have a new Honda-designed double clutch automated manual transmission with 8 speed-steering wheel shift paddles. The all new Acura NSX was a car of firsts. It was the first production car to feature aluminum construction for its body structure, body panels, suspension and engine.

According to Dick Collier, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., the delay has been because designers couldn’t agree on the NSX’s styling. American Honda President and CEO Tetsuo Imamura recently confirmed the Acura NSX will be launched in the U.S. in 2010.
