With the Acura NSX Type S, Honda is trying to fix what it left badly before. Despite the impressive power train at the time, the 3.5-liter V6 hybrid, the Japanese sports car could not reach high expectations. Type S seeks to offer full Honda NSX capabilities before retirement.
Version S version is limited to 350 copies numbered. Of those 350, 300 have an Acura badge on the nose, the other 50 are sold with the Honda logo. Of those 350, 70 will come in Gotham Gray matte color. For collectors, try getting the Honda NSX Type S logo in Gotham Gray with the optional Lightweight Weight Package – more on that later.
The Acura NSX acquires an aerodynamically enhanced body that combines a sharply cut surface with large air bubbles and additional destructive function. The subtle division rests under the nose, a new wing on the butt and a redesigned diffuser under the buttocks. With a slight lift at high speed and excellent cooling for the use of the song. To improve the mass placement in bulk, Type S comes with a carbon fiber roof design, the black pattern details complete the visual appearance.
The Acura NSX type stands on special rims, forged copies of size 245/35 R19 front and 305/30 R20 rear. They are bound with Pirelli rubber from the P Zero Corsa column. The Japanese sports car also gets a wider track, the Type S is one in front and two inches behind the standard Honda NSX. The optional Lightweight Weight Loss adds body parts to carbon fiber and Brembo ceramic brakes – you have a choice of orange, red, silver or black seats.
Honda also improves NSX power. The V6 hybrid engine welcomes new turbos, copies that the Japanese previously used in the GT3 race version. Intercoolers and 3.5 liter block injectors are also brand new. The power module also receives an upgrade: the battery pack capacity increases by 20%, which means that there is an additional e-boost and which increases the electrical independence slightly.
The power of the V6 biturbo hybrid system is now 608 hp, maximum torque 667 Nm. That makes the Type S respectively 27 hp and 22 Nm more powerful than the Honda NSX. The gearbox of the dual-speed robot shifts up to twice as fast, and the new driving mode settings allow for significant differences between different modes.
