The everyday supercar. The elusive combination of speed, sex appeal, efficiency, comfort and of course reliability. Acura invented the concept back in 1991 when it introduced the first NSX. Hand-built in Japan, the NSX was a mid-engine two-seater powered by a 290-horsepower V6 that could rev to almost 8,000 rpm. It was a technological tour de force at the time, featuring all-aluminum construction and everyday civility. It sent Ferrari and other sports car manufacturers back to the drawing board. Production ended in 2005, and today the original NSX is an automotive legend.
Well, the NSX is back. Last year Acura introduced the second generation of its flagship sports car. Like the original, it’s an everyday supercar, only this time it’s an all-wheel drive hybrid, designed and built in America. It’s also the sexiest, fastest, most powerful, and most technologically advanced Acura of all time. And, of course, it’s the most expensive, with prices starting over $155,000.
