Don't Be Fooled By Low Sales, The 2018 Acura Nsx Is A Masterpiece

Don't Be Fooled By Low Sales, The 2018 Acura NSX Is A Masterpiece

Although the Acura NSX is a technological marvel and essentially a mini-Porsche 918 Spyder, sales of the Japanese supercar haven’t been as strong as the brand would have hoped.

The car’s $156,600 starting price is certainly a key contributor to the meager sales, though one shouldn’t be fooled into thinking the NSX isn’t anything but remarkable, despite being far less common than rivals like the McLaren 570S and Porsche 911 Turbo.

(Prices exclude $965 destination and other charges.) All-new seats are now available in a rich Espresso leather and two new premium exterior paint options are available for the first time on RLX.

The 2018 Acura RLX showcases the brand's Precision Crafted Performance DNA in two distinct high-performance powertrains, making it the most powerful Acura after the NSX supercar. With the most performance of any Acura sedan, the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWDTM seamlessly integrates a direct-injected V-6 with three electric motors and Super Handling All-Wheel DriveTM for instant acceleration, outstanding all-weather performance and precise handling. The RLX Sport Hybrid delivers 377 peak total system horsepower and 341 lb.-ft. peak total system torque with its powertrain sharing its basic concept and some components with the NSX supercar.  Also available is the 2018 Acura RLX P-AWS with Precision All-Wheel SteeringTM (P-AWSâ), powered by a 3.5-liter Direct Injection SOHC i-VTECâ V-6 engine delivering peak horsepower of 310 (SAE net) and 272 lb.-ft. of peak torque (SAE net) and mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission delivering a more responsive and refined driving experience.

Acura Nsx Scienceofspeed Dream Project Brings Another Wing To Sema

Acura NSX ScienceofSpeed Dream Project brings another wing to SEMA

Acura rolled into SEMA last year with its non-hybrid NSX GT3 race car, that FIA spec-series competitor pulled to Vegas on a trailer behind a GT3-themed Acura MDX. Sticking with the GT3 theme this year but going road-legal, Acura worked with Arizona-based ScienceofSpeed on a GT3 package that NSX owners can put in driveways. The result is the lower, more powerful, more wing-y NSX "Dream Project."

Liquid-cooled injecting for the twin-turbo boosts output, adding 37 horsepower for a total of 610, and another 31 pound-feet of torque to register 507. A lightweight steel exhaust sheds 16 pounds and bestows those magnified numbers with magnified bass. A custom suspension drops the coupe by a little more than an inch, a custom iLIFT suspension add-on automatically raises the front axle two inches if the NSX detects a hurdle.
