A hotter version of the recently unveiled Acura NSX has been hinted recently by a company’s engineer.
Despite being officially unveiled at the beginning of this week, in a world premiere, during the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit, as a production version, the Acura NSX is now being rumored to get a hotter version. According to Ted Klaus, the Acura NSX chief engineer, who has recently spoken to Auto Express and hinted towards an even hotter version of the sports car. The vehicle might be called the Acura NSX Type R, but this hasn’t been officially confirmed just yet.
The current Acura NSX is coming with a new exterior design which has been inspired, of course, by the one of the concept car. The production version of the model is 4,470 mm in length, 1,940 mm in width and 1,215 mm in height, coming with a 2,630 mm long wheelbase. The cabin of the impressive sports car is getting the low mounted instrument panel, the power button fitted to the center console, dynamic TFT display and ultra thin strong A-pillar, besides others.
The most important part of the vehicle is found, of course, under its hood, where the twin turbo V^ longitudinally mounted engine is resting. This is producing 550 HP and it is backed up by three electric motors, coming with an all-wheel drive layout. From 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h), the model will need less than 4 seconds and it will go up against models like the Ferrari 458 Italia, Audi R8 V10 and Porsche 911 Turbo, according to our source.
