Breathless. Stunning. There are no words. The All New Acura NSX.

We’ve all been breathless, waiting for more news of the stunning new NSX. Acura has 2015-Acura-NSXpurposely been slow to release information — we get that they know how to build excitement about this much-anticipated supercar, but with its launch quickly approaching, new technical details of the legend were revealed at the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) World Congress and Exhibition held April 22nd in Detroit.

“Our goal is to create something altogether new and exciting, something that advances the concept of a next generation supercar in the spirit of the original NSX,” said Ted Klaus, chief engineer and global development leader of the new NSX. “In order to provide NSX-level value, we needed to push ourselves to experiment with, refine and then realize many new technologies.”

Significant technical revelations for the new NSX include:

  • Acura’s first use of a revolutionary multi-material space frame design that delivers class-leading body rigidity while remaining lightweight.
  • World’s first automotive application of new ablation casting technology resulting in world-class body rigidity for ultimate handling and control.
  • World’s first use of a three-dimensionally formed, ultra-high-strength steel A-pillar, supporting class-leading rigidity and crash performance while providing outstanding outward visibility.
  • Top-in-class aerodynamics targets without the use of active aerodynamic elements, while its three-motor Sport Hybrid power unit is cooled through 10 heat exchangers all thanks to a total airflow management strategy that maximizes the flow of air around and throughNSX.
  • Displacement of theNSX’s all-new twin turbo V-6 engine was confirmed to be 3.5-liters.
  • TheNSX will mark the introduction of the most capable and highest torque capacity Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system in Acura history.
  • The latest proprietary logic advancesAcura’s two decades-long pursuit of Super Handling that proactively responds to driver inputs, allowing the NSX to achieve a new level of line trace while at the same time intelligently supporting the driver in changing environments.

The Acura NSX is Coming…

Here’s the lowdown on Acura’s legendary supercar. According to March 2015 edition of Motortrend Magazine, “Acura NSX 2016will begin taking orders this summer at an estimated base price of $150,000. As for performance? The car is a different animal than, say, the Ferrari 458 which is always on; it’s hot and exotic 1,000 percent of the time. Think more of an Audi V10 with an E-thrust element. We can’t wait to find out.”

Neither can we! We’ll keep you posted on when Butler Acura receives our first 2016 NSX in stock. It’s going to be BIG and you don’t want to miss it!
