Every bolt is inserted by hand before the final torque settings are applied.
The hand-built engine is a 3.5 litre twin-turbocharged V6. Mid mounted to the aluminium chassis, it delivers power through a nine-speed Dual Clutch Transmission for instant response.
More power is added via a rear electric motor and twin mounted electric units at the front. On the track it’s electrifying. You can hear it, sense it and feel it through your body as you accelerate, brake and turn; but when you're back on the road, you can simply dial down the power.
Once the drivetrain is complete and in place, it’s ready for the bodywork.
Waiting in line, the Direct Drive Motor Units are ready for hand assembly.
The Integrated Dynamics System puts you perfectly in touch with the NSX.
The driver-orientated cockpit puts you at the very heart of the NSX driving experience, where you’re instantly connected to a selection of four dynamic driving modes.
Silent running when you need it. In Quiet mode, the NSX can run quietly on electric power alone over short distances.
Select Sport to get the perfect balance of sound from the V6 engine, along with perfectly tailored performance for driving on normal roads.
This is where things get serious. Sport+ stiffens up the steering and provides quicker shifting through the nine-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (9DCT) – coaxing you towards the red line.
Here’s where the NSX reveals its racing DNA. With the sport hybrid system working to its full capacity, Track mode gives you spine-tingling acceleration, cornering and braking: Go, stop and turn. Point the NSX to where you want it to go, and it goes.
Electrifying acceleration is delivered via the turbocharged V6 and the Direct Drive Motor unit.
The nine-speed Dual Clutch Transmission synchronises beautifully with the V6 power plant and Direct Drive Motor unit, making full use of the power output and broad power band of the NSX. Gear shifting is lightning fast when you need it and combines with the NSX’s rapid response; it’s perfect for a track day and seamlessly smooth on the road, too.
Through smaller, lighter turbochargers more output is achieved by using two unique ‘Electronic Wastegate’ types of unit. These compact turbines save space and regulate maximum boost pressure for less delay and greater performance.
A track day is the perfect way to experience the superior handling and different performance characteristics of the NSX.
The NSX is a truly different driving experience; it’s vivid, it’s immediate and it feels like you're part of the car.
By using the immediate torque response produced by the system’s three electric motor units – combined with the V6 engine and energy recovery technology – the NSX heightens the driver’s confidence and ability when accelerating, braking and cornering.
When braking, turning-in and exiting a corner, the electric motors (1),(2) & (3) work in harmony with the V6 engine (4). Power is regulated via the (IPU) Intelligent Power Unit and (PDU) Power Drive Unit (5) – situated in the Lithium Battery (6).
Three electric motors (1),(2) & (3) work together with the twin-turbocharged V6 engine (4). The combined power provides instant acceleration from the moment the driver applies the throttle.
To deliver immediate turn-in response, the (TMU) Twin Motor Units at the front adjust speed for left and right cornering. It’s called ‘Direct Yaw Control’, where one motor (1) drives, while the other motor (2) decelerates. The NSX literally drives you into, around and out of the corner.
Powerful, virtually fade-free braking is assisted by the deceleration of the electric Twin Motor Units (1), (2) and the rear, crankshaft mounted electric motor (3). They’re equipped with an electro-servo regenerative braking system, which recharges the main battery (4) by using this braking energy.
Created in association with the award winning recording engineer and producer, Elliot Scheiner, the nine-speaker system, with surround-sound technology, pushes out 580 watts for an extraordinary experience that creates a virtual concert hall in the car. Let the music commence.
