2016 Acura NSX Was Well Worth the Wait

10 years of waiting, plus another three years of teasing and finally — FINALLY — Acura drops the curtain on the all-new NSX in Detroit. Good news is it was totally worth the wait. From the get go, the thing looks absolutely gorgeous. It hasn’t strayed much from the concepts we’ve been seeing for the past three years, but the wheels get sharper, the front end gets cleaner, and the whole car looks a whole lot sharper. Especially draped in that candy apple red paint job. PHOTOS: See More of the 2016 Acura NSX Under the hood is a twin-turbo hybrid V6 that Acura says puts out somewhere over 550 horsepower. That hybrid drivetrain is paired to a 9-speed dual-clutch gearbox and likely four-wheel drive. As far as we know, no manual is in the cards (yet). Probably the most surprising thing about this car, though, is that it won’t be built in Japan. Actually, Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, will design and construct every inch of this vehicle from the ground up, with oversight from over 100 of Acura’s most skilled technicians.
