Is th Acura TLX Type-S Foreshadowing a New Generation of Acura Performance Cars?

June 2021 was an important day for Acura and their TLX Type-S, as the new performance sedan finally hit the market. To recap, Acura will only produce 2,000 examples of the TLX Type-S. It is unknown at this point how many of the 2,000 will be the model year 2021 and how many 2022. The real question is whether or not Acura is testing the waters to decide whether it should expand production beyond the initial run of 2,000 cars.

2019 Acura NSX

2019 Acura NSX

Handles better, includes previous options as standard

The iconic Acura NSX made a comeback in 2016, after a 11-year absence from the market. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain for the first time, the second-generation NSX just got better for the 2019 model year thanks to a comprehensive mid-cycle refresh.

Already a potent sports car, the Acura NSX now rides on a revised chassis that’s supposed to enhance agility on the road and track. Acura also made some design changes, but these are rather small and limited mostly to new color options. But the Japanese firm also added new standard features that cost more than the marginal price increase of the facelift. Find out more about that in the review below.

2017 Acura NSX "Dream Project By ScienceofSpeed

2017 Acura NSX "Dream Project By ScienceofSpeed

The NSX gets garnished with some well deserved love

The second-gen Acura NSX is an amazing, mid-engined supercar that serves as a fine predecessor to the original. But, no matter how good a company makes its prized halo car, it can always be made better. And, that’s exactly what ScienceofSpeed has done for the second-gen NSX. There aren’t any serious engine upgrades to speak of (no, they didn’t throw on bigger turbos and upgrade the electric motors) but there are some minor upgrades to increase horsepower and torque a bit. The body isn’t neglected either, with a new aero kit and some fresh paint in place to fresh things up in the sun. Finally, the interior gets the orgasmic treatment as well, including things like new seats and updated custom upholstery.

Sounds pretty nice, right? Well, it’s not often that you find such a prominent aftermarket touch on a car like the NSX. After all, it’s only been on the market for a little over a year, and it took a long time for the name to be resurrected. So, what does this custom NSX have going for it? Well, it showed up at the 2017 SEMA show, and we’re here to take a good look at it. Let’s take a journey down the page.

2016 Acura NSX

2016 Acura NSX

Tech-laden mid-engine awesomeness from the Land of the Rising Sun

The Nissan GT-R is definitely the hottest thing to come from Japan nowadays, but when it comes to mid-engined supercars, the Honda/Acura NSX set all the benchmarks. At least it did until 2005, when Honda decided to pull the plug on the sports car it had developed with input from Ayrton Senna, a man regarded by many as the best Formula One driver of all time. The NSX went on sale in 1990 with a 270-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 behind its seats. The engine was later updated to a 3.2-liter V-6 that cranked out 290 ponies. While its output wasn’t exactly impressive compared to contemporary supercars, the NSX was still incredibly fast thanks to its low curb weight. Zero to 60 mph took 5.1 seconds when the car was first released, but the benchmark dropped to 4.5 seconds by the late ’90s. The NSX ceased production in 2005, when Honda announced plans to develop a successor. Fast-forward to the 2015 North American International Auto Show, where after years of teasing and concept reveals, the 2016 Acura NSX finally became a reality.

A quarter of a century after the original NSX debuted, the second generation couldn’t be more different, apart from the number of cylinders and engine configuration, of course. Powered by a twin-turbocharged, 75-degree V-6 engine paired with three electric motors and a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT), the 2016 Acura NSX is here and it means business.

"Our global team embraced the challenge to create a new sports car experience, leveraging new technology to deliver incredibly vivid performance in a vehicle that responds intuitively and immediately to the will of the driver," said Ted Klaus, chief engineer and global development leader for the model. "The NSX delivers pinnacle supercar performance, with zero-delay acceleration and exhilarating, confidence-inspiring driving dynamics."

Unlike the rear-wheel-driven first generation, the new NSX comes with SH-AWD, with the front wheels powered by two of the three electric motors. Despite being a globally developed sports car, the 2016 NSX was largely designed by a team led by American engineers from Honda’s development center in Raymond, Ohio, while production took place in Marysville, Ohio.

Updated 05/25/2016: Th first Acura NSX rolled out of the production line at the new Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio. The first unit went to Rick Hendrick whom will receive a custom-ordered NSX, after a winning bid of $1.2 million at the Barrett-Jackson auction in January. Hit "play" to watch the video from the event.
