Acura has finally launched the new NSX in China. The hybrid sports car has been introduced with a base price of 2.89 million yuan (Rs 2.85 crore) following a lot of hype.
The highlight of the new NSX is obviously its 580bhp, twin-turbocharged V6 engine which is paired to an all-wheel drive system and a new 9-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. While the all-aluminium monocoque shell of the original NSX was rather ahead of its time, the new NSX gets an aluminum and steel-intensive architecture.
The original NSX was a mid-engined supercar sold between 1990 and 2005. While it had earned the reputation of being an ‘everyday supercar’, the new NSX commands a lot more premium image and competes mainly with the Nissan GT-R in the all-wheel drive sports car segment.
