Using some spy photos of the new 2010 Acura NSX spotted on the Nürburgring in Art Nouveau leopard print Edmunds‘ JDM friends feat. Auto Holiday Magazine have put some rendered speculation.
Given what we see in these renderings, the imposing tourer is neat but not gorgeous, and follows the 2007 Detroit Auto Show notion car’s lines faster than first thought. And that’s a humiliate, because the two-seater Acura’s estimated cost tag of $160,000 will place it right on top of much prettier rivals in the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Maserati Gran Turismo and Jaguar XKR.
Fitting with a 5.5-liter V10 generating upwards of 600 horsepower and 433 squash feet of torque, the potential Acura produces a gripping exhaust memo. And when tempo is not the topic, the V10 deactivates five cylinders to preclude fuel and junior emissions. The V10 is bolted to a prompt-shifting six-haste dual-clutch transmission forceful the rear wheels, while a revised type of Honda‘s Super Handling AWD method generates the car’s prodigious grip levels, enabling such a nimble ‘Ring lap time.
Our insider explains that Honda has employed as much F1 construct as feasible to create ceiling downforce and honest-line stability. That is why the NSX replacement was able to seizure up at the Nürburgring and rattle off a red-hot lap time of 7 resume, 37 seconds on its first challenge, and without any cumbersome rear wings. Our font predicts that when Honda profits to the ‘Ring for the autumn testing term, it will almost indeed pole a time under 7:30, generous the GT-R an actual run for its money.
