NSX is the first supercar powered by a bespoke Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel DriveTM, 573-hp power unit that is an absolute game-changer. NSX Engine power and direct electric torque combine for a new kind of dynamic performance, not just in acceleration, but in steering and braking too. This is interwoven dynamics in the purest sense: exhilarating performance powered by precision.
DYNAMICS BEGINS WITH PHYSICS AND IMAGINATION, building and testing new ideas while subjecting conventional wisdom to skeptical reexamination. Motion, mass and geometry are applied through a lens of innovation, fine-tuned such that inventiveness and proven principles come to coexist for an unequaled driving experience.
IT GROWLS AND YOU'RE GONE. Speed, power and amazing ingenuity live inside this clever beast: a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged, 75-degree, 3.5-liter DOHC V-6 engine with dry sump lubrication. It’s the product of countless days and nights of relentless engineering, perfected on the track.
Think of it as throttle response deluxe. Sandwiched between the V-6 and the 9-speed DCT, the direct drive supercar electric motor is attached directly to the driveshaft for immediate torque and acceleration. At the track, Launch Mode can slice off .5 seconds and deliver pressed-back-in-your-seat g-force the instant you release the brake.
The brain of the power unit is also its primary battery. Positioned low and center, it sits behind the seats, directing energy to electric motors front and rear.
G-loading you can feel comes from two independent electric motors at the front wheels that deal out immediate torque on the move for athletic acceleration that makes passing absolutely effortless.
Directs airflow down the rear glass to cool the transmission and engine room.
Rear brakes are partially cooled via specially-tuned air deflectors directing air through the subframe.
Maximize cooling across key heat exchangers from front to back.
Improve airflow and provide downforce as they direct air to intercooler intakes and engine vents.
THE SYNERGY OF MAN AND MACHINE BEGINS HERE, where the sense of NSX as an extension of self becomes tangible. The wheel grasp, the pedal feel, the seat designed to support its driver through even the most extreme maneuvers. It’s a command center where intuitive controls, unobstructed views and world-class acoustics make every drive extraordinary.
The aggressively-shaped bolsters are smooth leather for ease of ingress/egress. Alcantara® is at the center of the sports seats to provide grip and reduce lateral movement. Key interior surfaces are ergonomically padded to support knees and elbows, providing additional supercar comfort and stability.
CONNECTION TO THE ROAD DEMANDS SWEEPING VISIBILITY – a quality embraced by NSX engineers dating back to the first-generation NSX. Today, the expansive view begins with ultra-slim A-pillars crafted using an innovative, 3D bent-and-quenched fabrication process that produces ultra-high tensile strength. Adding to the openness is the low meter visor, the uniquely shaped steering wheel, a frameless rearview mirror and side mirrors on slender stalks.
Slightly-indented finger holds are located at both 10:00 and 2:00 and at 9:00 and 3:00 to satisfy the preferences of most drivers.
The racing inspired shape allows an unobstructed view over the top and greater leg clearance at the bottom.
LEAPS FROM HUSHED TO HELLION IN A SINGLE BOUND. In Quiet mode, NSX runs virtually silent; in Track mode, every note of peak performance is in full-throated cry. The sound satisfies on a gut level, both on the street and inside the acoustically-tuned cabin, where engine sound correlates with dynamic mode.
NSX super sports brakes are powerful, linear, predictable and virtually fade-free. High-performance Brembo® hydraulic brakes and hybrid regenerative braking are seamlessly integrated to confidently deliver authentic, high-fidelity response anywhere, anytime.
Aluminum stampings are utilized as lightweight closure panels for the rear floor, rear bulkhead and B-pillars.
Highly rigid, extruded-aluminum beams comprise the majority of the space frame.
FROM ITS ULTRA-RIGID SPACE FRAME to dynamically agile Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™, the chassis is the super skeleton that supports all NSX systems.
