2017 Honda NSX technical specs revealed

Snapshot: Honda and Acura have finally revealed the technical specifications of the 2017 NSX.

The reveal comes after the model’s original debut in production guise back in January at the Detroit Motor Show and now we know the hybrid supercar will employ a newly developed V6 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine that develops a massive 500 bhp and a maximum torque of 550 Nm. The combustion engine has a 7,500 rpm redline and works together with a rear-mounted electric motors that generates 47 bhp and 135 Nm of torque.

In between the front wheels are two electric motors that each develop 36 bhp and 73 Nm and are all part of the SH-AWD setup which also includes a 9-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission and a lithium-ion battery pack. Honda and Acura say the new NSX has a combined output of 573 bhp and 644 Nm which will ensure the hybrid supercar with a 0-96 kmph run in as little as three seconds before reaching a top speed of 307 kmph.

The 2017 Honda / Acura NSX weighs 1,725 kg which makes it substantially heavier than its main rivals, but taking into account the performance stats, it should still feel likely a very fast car once the three electric motors and the conventional engine join their forces to unlock the car’s full power.

The second generation NSX is scheduled to go on sale in the spring of 2016 after months of delays and is believed to kick off at around $170,000, but this hasn’t been confirmed yet by Honda or Acura. On top of this price, customers will be able to add optional goodies like a premium sound system, navigation and also numerous carbon fiber bits and pieces such as the engine cover, rear spoiler and even a carbon fiber roof to make the car lighter which in return will boost its performances and make it a more worthy adversary for segment competitors such as the brand new Audi R8 V10 / R8 V10 Plus.
