2017 Acura NSX Pittsburgh PA
There are not many cars out there capable of drawing an immediate reaction quite like the Acura NSX. Ever since the supercar first hit the market in the early 90s, it has garnered a great deal of attention and grown to become one of the most sought-after Acura models ever produced. For the last decade, the NSX has been on hiatus, but it’s back with a vengeance for the 2017 model year, bigger and stronger than ever before. Engineered to be the perfect balance of power, handling, form and function, sport and luxury, the supercar is not only a tour de force, but a force to be reckoned with.
Looking at the NSX, the last thing that you would probably expect it to be is a hybrid, but that is exactly what it is. The supercar sports a hybrid powertrain that is composed of three electric motors and a mid-mounted twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine. Combined, the powertrain churns out 573 horsepower and a whopping 476 lb-ft of torque. The performance is further enhanced by a nine-speed dual-clutch gearbox and a state-of-the-art all-wheel drive system that gives the NSX exceptional traction at any given moment.
Although the exterior design of the NSX has everything that you would expect from a performance-driven supercar, its design helps it do more than just look good. The NSX was sculpted to maximize efficiency, which means that each and every modern edge and crisp line was cut for practicality. Every surface and every exterior element does something to improve the aerodynamics, down force or cooling. To boost performance even more, the entire design of the NSX centers around cutting weight.
Inside, you’ll find plenty of technology to keep you entertained and connected while behind the wheel, but in our eyes, some of the most exciting technology found in the NSX are the systems that have to do with the performance of the supercar. Take, for example, its drive mode selector, which gives you access to modes such as Quiet, Sport, Sport Plus and Track. Thanks to the different modes, the Acura NSX can be used for a variety of tasks. You can take it to the track, or down the road for eggs and a gallon of milk.

The NSX can be tame when you want it to be, but it’s always ready to spring into action and give you heart-pounding performance within a matter of seconds.
While we’re on the subject, allow us to delve a bit deeper into the capabilities of the masterful hybrid powertrain of the NSX. We gave you the total output, but what we haven’t told you is that with the full range of torque, the supercar is able to accelerate to 60 mph from a dead stop in just three seconds.
