Acura has released more details about the 2016 NSX, following its world premiere back in January at NAIAS in Detroit.

The newly developed twin-turbo V6 engine will have a 3.5-liter displacement and will be part of the SH-AWD system which will also include a new nine-speed dual-clutch gearbox, a rear-mounted electric motor positioned between the combustion engine and transmission, along with two front-mounted electric motors for dynamic torque vectoring.

Acura says the long-awaited NSX has no less than ten air-cooled heat exchangers, three radiators as well as twin intercoolers installed in the side intakes. The 2016 NSX also benefits from a new ablation casting technology promising to bring "world-class body rigidity" while the industry's first 3D-formed A-pillar grants "class-leading rigidity and crash performance."

Production of the 2016 Acura NSX is scheduled to kick off this fall. It will likely be offered with an optional track package and there will be numerous customization options. The car's chief designer has already hinted a Type R version is in the works, but it's at least several years away.

Extensive details are available in the attached press release.
