2017 Acura NSX Type R is the new high performance muscle car produced by Honda luxury division. Last year’s Acura was a bit overshined with the new 2016 Ford GT. This model is not made to compete with Ford’s Le Mans anniversary model, but with Nissan GT-R, which is currently one of the most competitive supercars.
Before even this car was released, Acura officials revealed that it will come with 550 horsepower and it will be able to reach 62 mph in only 3 seconds. Old Type R model was produced from 1991 to 2205 and it was renewer every two years. We still don’t know what is new model’s production cycle going to look.
NSX Design – Inside and Outside look
In the beginning of 2015 Acura revealed this car’s color, and it had long expected bright red exterior. Not a long time after that another version with in white was also revealed. When it comes to front end it comes with several updates comparing to the old model that was produced until 2005, one of the most visible changes is the introduction of several additional splitters. New model also comes with much wider track and the new light-weight wheels.
All this is carried by the new powerful engine and another thing that came with several updates is the rear wing part of the vehicle.
2017 Acura NSX Type R comes with two tone design that looks very sporty and elegant at the same time. When it comes to sportiness the good thing is that this car comes with flashy red color from the exterior that cn be seen in the lower parts of front end deck. Black and grey are another two colors with seats being covered in leather and featuring quality stitching and also red-black combination. Comparing to regular NSX this model comes with the sam climate control, and there is almost not carpeting on the floor and on the sides.
Seats are extra comfortable and they are made out of carbon fiber which also makes them ultra light weight. One of the worst things about this model’s interior is that it doesn’t come with audio system, but the one can be tuned after.
The Engine & Performance
This model will be charged with 3,6 liter turbocharged V6 engine and it is going to have at least 400 horsepower, while the old information about more than 550 horses was a disinformation. When it comes to acceleration this car will be able to reach 62 mph in only three seconds and also when it comes to maximum speed it will be one of the best vehicles in the class. This is mostly due to very light weight construction, some of the interior features that are missing and lots of carbon fiber in the interior design.
If you ask yourself, the maximum speed is estimated at 200 mph. As you can to suppose, this is impressive performance. But, we can expect a lot of details in the first quarter of the next year.
2017 Acura NSX Type R Price details
When it comes to price 2017 Acura NSX Type R is definitely not going to be a cheap car. Official price tag hasn’t been revealed yet by Honda officials, but we believe that this vehicle is going to cost at least $150,000. This is much more than the current price of Nissan GT-R and Honda will need to offer some really nice features to compete with this fantastic muscle car.
