2016 Acura NSX

The 2016 NSX will pack a twin-turbo V6 engine, and Acura confirmed it will displace 3.5 L. The unit will be mounted amidships and team with hybrid components to increase performance and efficiency. The supercar also features the most advanced evolution of Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive system, and it's capable of distributing more torque than any other setup the brand has used. The NSX will also mark Acura's first use of a multimaterial space frame, and it includes high-strength steel and aluminum. This will allow the NSX to hit its weight targets, while maintaining rigidity.

Since the 2013 concept car, the final model has grown in size: the new NSX is an inch wider, 0.6 inches taller and 0.8 inches longer in wheelbase, while overall length has been stretched 3.1 inches. The twin-turbocharged V6's hybrid assistance comes from two motors up front (for torque vectoring), and a direct-drive unit at the rear. The hood vents were relocated and grew to roughly triple their original size, which in turn necessitated other changes, since the more air enters the vehicle, the more that air also needs to exit.

Despite its relatively conservative interior treatment, the cabin does have subtle details that point to the NSX's uniqueness, namely the multifunction TFT display and the instrument panel frame, a structural element visible around the nav screen and along the passenger side of the dashboard. The stretch of aluminum is artfully sandwiched between an Alcantara lower piece and a leather-wrapped upper section and finished in a tasteful satin texture with delicately radiused edges. (
