2017 Acura NSX to make its Pikes Peak debut

2017 Acura NSX to make its Pikes Peak debut

The NSX is a legend in itself with Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna helping its development in the early years. The 2017 Acura NSX will now enter the proving grounds in North America for the first time, racing at the 100th anniversary of the Race to the Clouds – the Pikes Peak international hill climb.

Piloting the two Acura NSXs will be Acura’s engineers and brothers, James and Nick Robinson. While James has been racing the NSX at the Pikes Peak since 2012, Nick is the reigning PP250 champion. The Time Attack 1 NSX will be driven by James and has undergone weight reduction along with a custom high-flow racing exhaust being added to boost performance. The Time Attack 2 car that will be driven by Nick is a production car with the required safety modifications to meet the safety regulations of the race.

The Acura NSX runs a twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine mated to a nine-speed dual clutch transmission powering the rear wheels through a direct-drive motor. The front wheels are powered by a twin-motor unit which features the world’s first electrically powered torque vectoring capability applied in supercars. The all-electric SH-AWD (Super Handling All-wheel Drive) NSX will also run in the exhibition class at the Pikes Peak and is thrice as powerful as its predecessor which competed last year.
