2019 Acura NSX on the track

There have also been reports that the NSX Type R could be making its debut this October at the Tokyo Motor Show. What is the NSX Type R? It is an even more powerful version of the iconic supercar that is sure to generate a lot of buzz among Spring drivers. Learn more about the anticipated Acura NSX Type R specs before this vehicle hits showrooms and joins the lineup.

Expected Acura NSX Type R Specs

Early reports anticipate that the 3.5L hybrid V6 could deliver as much as 650 hp, which is a pretty impressive jump from its current 573 hp. To further boost handling, the Acura NSX Type R should also be receiving bigger carbon-ceramic brakes and a stiffer suspension system. These rumors have not yet been confirmed by Acura, so Sugarland drivers will have to eagerly await more details from the manufacturer.

The Current Acura NSX

While the speculated Acura NSX Type R specs are quite impressive, the current Acura NSX does not disappoint. It was designed with an ultra-rigid multi-material space frame for a safer and more dynamic drive. The NSX was also developed with aerodynamics in mind, which helps to send airflow down the rear glass to assist in cooling the engine room and transmission. Add this to its remarkable powertrain, and the NSX can go from 0-60 mph in an adrenaline-pumping 2.7 seconds. Other key features of the 2019 Acura NSX include:

  • Racing-inspired steering wheel
  • ELS Studio® Premium Audio system
  • Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel DriveTM
  • 9-speed DCT
