Since we’re dealing with the aftermarket association’s show, we’re bound to see interesting projects from tuners – even though in recent years the manufacturers have directly taken the show by storm.
One of the most interesting tuning mods presented in front of the worldwide audience attending the 2017 edition of the SEMA show in Las Vegas is arguably the ScienceofSpeed Dream Project – which is obviously based (and has the official blessing of the company) on the Acura NSX. The Arizona-based ScienceofSpeed, which appeared back in 2001, have decided to showcase their own take on the NSX, a great basis for a tuning project from the get go. “ScienceofSpeed is thrilled to present our expression of the second generation NSX unlimited and unrestricted,” said Chris Willson, general manager of ScienceofSpeed. “Devoted NSX fans share in a rich 27-year history, and with the second-generation NSX reaching the aftermarket community, now is an extraordinary time to be an NSX enthusiast.”
The modifications include a new exhaust system, complete with high-performance downpipes, liquid injected intercooling and others for a power bump to 610 horsepower and 507 pound-feet of torque – up 37 ponies and 31 lb-ft from the standard configuration. ScienceofSpeed also added a bespoke suspension, complete with sensors and tech from iLift, which can detect larger obstacles and automatically raise the front by two inches, along with a set of lightweight Advan wheels. The beefy aero kit has everything an enthusiast needs, while inside there’s a gaugeART OLED multi-function display and special Recaro seats.
