Touareg 2.5 posted a topic in HondaMessaggio Aggiornato al 03/03/2015 Honda NSX Acura NSX carscoops Press Release: Acura Eccola in anteprima nella sua versione di serie a marchio Acura (lascio il titolo Honda, data la prossima presentazione della variante europea). Per intenditori, molto bella.
[USA] Acura NSX Type-S 2022300 esemplari per l’America e 50 per altri mercati, tante saranno le Acura NSX Type-S in produzione, modello che segnerà la fine della produzione della supercar giapponese. Il 3.5 V6 Twin-Turbo con modulo ibrido arriva a 608 cv (+ 27) e 667 Nm (+ 17) grazie ad un nuovo set di turbo presi in prestito dalla NSX GT3 Evo da corsa. Modifiche anche al cambio 9DCT, adesso più veloce del 50% nelle cambiate e dotato del Rapid Downshift Mode; il selettore di guida e le sue modalità sono stati ricalibrati e riadattati alle nuove modifiche. Fuori troviamo nuovi paraurti, estrattore in carbonio, nuovi cerchioni, tetto in carbonio ed il colore Gotham Grey limitato a 70 dei 350 esemplari previsti. Infine per 13k dollari, il Lightweight pack aggiunge freni Brembo carboceramici, cofano motore in fibra di carbonio, e carbonio esteso per gli interni con un risparmio totale di 26.2 kg. Prezzi da 169.500$ per la Type-S e da 182.500$ per la Lightweight. Press Release: New Forged Wheels, Wider Track New performance forged alloy split-five spoke wheels are available in Matte Shark Grey or Gloss Berlina Black. Their increased negative offset widen the front and rear track of the NSX Type S by 0.4-in. and 0.8-in., respectively. This not only improves the supercar’s handling but gives it an especially aggressive stance. Brembo® High Performance Braking For the 2022 NSX Type S, six-piston front and four-piston Brembo® brakes with red finished calipers are standard equipment. Upgrading to the Lightweight Package, includes Carbon Ceramic Brembo brakes (available with Black, Silver, Red or Orange calipers) and yields a curb weight reduction of nearly 58 lbs. Bespoke Pirelli P-Zero Tires To maximize performance, Pirelli has developed a new P-Zero tire exclusively for the NSX Type S utilizing advanced modeling technology developed through years of motorsports experience. Sized 245/35ZR19 at the front and 305/30ZR20 at the rear, the tires feature an asymmetric tread pattern for excellent steering precision, rear stability and high grip in wet and dry conditions and Ultra High Performance tread compounds to provide outstanding handling and braking performance. Along with the increase to front and rear track, the new tires contribute to a 6-percent increase in lateral grip. Each bespoke Pirelli P Zero for the 2022 NSX Type S has the “H0” marking on the sidewall indicating that it has been specially developed with Acura to enhance the performance of the supercar. Race-Inspired Design and Aerodynamics Dramatic and aggressive, the new design of NSX Type S remains rooted in the fundamental principles of Total Airflow Management that has guided NSX design from the outset. The new nose, with its larger, more angular air intakes, and the rear end’s larger diffuser work together for enhanced high-speed stability. The new shape of its carbon fiber front spoiler minimizes front aerodynamic lift by directing air flow under the car. To help cool the more powerful engine a larger front grille opening allows more air to reach the radiators, while four additional openings, two on each side, route air to a sub-radiator behind each corner of the front bumper. The outermost air intakes also pass air through to the side of the car, working with the redesigned front corners to create an air-curtain. This reduces the wake along the side of the car, improving air flow to the side-mounted air intakes for the intercoolers. Air exiting the rear of the car is routed through a new, larger carbon fiber diffuser modeled after the one used on the NSX GT3 Evo race car. Shaped to allow quick air flow through the center section, the diffuser creates downforce. Additional fins help to prevent wake effects from the tires when cornering, which would reduce the downforce in critical cornering maneuvers. The diffuser shape also shifts the negative pressure peak position toward the rear, helping to create a balanced downforce effect. Exclusive Design Details Authentic materials are utilized throughout the NSX Type S, including the carbon fiber used for its front lower spoiler, side sills, rear deck-lid spoiler and the new diffuser. A standard carbon fiber roof not only enhances the new design but helps lower the supercar’s center of gravity by reducing weight higher up in the car. Previously resin, the mesh in each of the front air intakes are steel. Gloss Berlina Black outside mirrors, door handles, a dark exhaust finisher and, for the first-time, Acura badges front and rear are standard. Dark-tinted headlight and taillight lenses and a distinctive red engine cover further the aggressive appearance. “Type S” decals grace the rear quarter panels and each NSX Type S will feature a special numbered plaque mounted to the engine cowling. For increased performance, and an even more custom appearance, buyers can add the available Lightweight Package, which adds a high-gloss carbon fiber engine cover and carbon ceramic brakes. Inside, the Lightweight Package includes carbon fiber accents on the steering wheel and carbon fiber meter hood. Put together, the Lightweight Package reduces curb weight by 57.8 pounds (26.2 kg). New Gotham Gray Finish Available in 10 colors, the 2022 NSX Type S will be the first Acura product in North America available in an exclusive matte paint finish. The Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio uses a five-layer process that paints individual panels before they are mounted to the car, allowing each panel to completely cure before the next coat of paint is applied. For the even more sinister appearance of Gotham Gray, a clear matte metallic finish is applied as the fifth layer instead of the instead of the glossy clearcoat normally used. Its production will be limited to just 70 of the 350 NSX Type S models that will be built. This exclusive matte metallic finish requires new handling and shipping techniques at the PMC, to ensure it is fully protected when the completed vehicle is being transported. This includes a new protective film applied to the car, and a new, thicker and softer body covering for transportation. In addition, special care and training will be given to Acura dealers, who will instruct owners on the Enhanced Driver-Focused Cabin Inspired by the original NSX, the second-generation NSX interior is an ergonomic and driver-focused design that has been further elevated in NSX Type S. Newly-added are an Alcantara® headliner, embroidered Type S logo on the glove compartment and embossed NSX logos on the headrests. The NSX Type S logo is found on the key fob. Additional interior details include contrast stitching and three available Alcantara® and Semi-Aniline Leather combinations; Ebony, Orchid and Red. Full Semi-Aniline Leather seats in Ebony or Red are optional. Manufactured in America Every second-generation NSX, including NSX Type S, is built exclusively at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio. Designed from the outset for production of specialty, hand-built vehicles, the PMC was developed to innovate both the means and the methods of producing low-volume specialty vehicles by marrying the precision of advanced technology with the artistry of human craftsmanship. Also home to NSX GT3 Evo and the MDX, TLX and RDX PMC Editions, more information about PMC is available here. The NSX engine is hand-assembled in a specialized facility within the Anna Engine Plant in Ohio.

Honda/Acura NSX M.Y. 2019Al concorso d'Eleganza di Pebble Beach, Acura presenta il M.Y. 2019 della sua NSX. Le modifiche intraprese sono mirate ad una diversa logica di gestione della parte ibrida che si adattasse maggiormente all'utilizzo su strada e su pista. Le sospensioni sono state modificate con l'adozione di una barra anti-rollio dal diametro maggiorato e l'utilizzo di nuovi pneumatici Continental ad alte prestazioni fa il resto. Acura/Honda dichiara che la NSX così aggiornata è di 2 secondi più veloce sul giro secco sul Circuito di Suzuka in Giappone. Spazio anche al colore, con la nuova tinta Thermal Orange Pearl da 700 dollari di optional. Di serie, invece, troviamo i sedili elettrici regolabili a 4 vie, un nuovo sistema audio, sensori di parcheggio e pedaliera in alluminio. In USA sarà in vendita da Ottobre con un aggravio di 1500 dollari rispetto alla Acura NSX M.Y. 2018. Via Honda
