The original Acura NSX was considered to be one of Japanâ€™s most popular supercars. But times have changes and the Nissan GT-R is quickly making its way to the top slot in the consumerâ€™s mind. Because of this Honda is going to reclaim back the hearts of the people and push their way back to the top.
Takeo Fukui – CEO for Honda – stated that the next-generation Honda NSX (Acura NSX) will beat the lap time made by the Nissan GT-R and the Lexus LF-A on the Nurburgring. Anyone who can make good time on this ring is deemed to be truly faster then your average car.
We can’t say for certain, but industry pundits are saying that the NSX will get powered by a 5.5L V10 good for 550 horsepower and 420 lbs-ft of torque. Instead of a standard transmission, it’ll get an 8-speed auto with paddle shifters and an advanced version of Honda’s SH-AWD system. The time to beat? 7:29.00.
