Acura has announced the discontinuation of the NSX hybrid sports coupe, which debuted in 2015. The last copies of the model will roll off the assembly line next year. Finally, the brand will “slam the door” by releasing a “charged” version of the Type S: it will be presented at the American auto show Monterey Car Week on August 12 this year. The limited edition will be released in 350 pieces and will differ in external and technical modifications.
The second generation Acura NSX coupe debuted in 2015. The car received a hybrid power plant with a V6 3.5 biturbo engine and two electric motors with a total capacity of 580 horsepower and 645 Nm, a nine-speed “robot” with two clutches, and an SH-AWD all-wheel drive. The sports car accelerates to “hundreds” in 2.7 seconds at a maximum speed of 308 kilometers per hour.
The technical characteristics of the NSX Type S are still unknown, but the engineers say that the farewell special version will be even more powerful. In addition, specialists will significantly modernize the chassis and suspension of the sports car, as well as improve its handling. Visually, the new Acura NSX will feature matte black door handles, a dark rear spoiler, red grille trim and Type S logos next to the rear wheels.
The premiere of the “charged” Acura NSX will take place on August 12, 2021 at the Monterey Car Week auto show in the USA. In total, the engineers will build 350 exclusive sports cars, 300 of which are intended for the American market. At the same time, the current generation of the model is no longer available for ordering on the official website of the automaker. The coupe will be released at the end of 2022.
Last October, Acura expanded its first-generation NSX sports car factory refurbishment program in the United States. The cost of a complete restoration of the model will cost the owners about $ 140,000.
