Acura NSX 2016 Coming

Acura NSX 2016 Coming
A new Nissan GT-R is definitely the hottest thing to come from Japan nowadays, but when it comes to mid-engined supercars, the Honda/Acura NSX set all the benchmarks. At least it did until 2005, when Honda decided to pull the plug on the sports car it had developed with input from Ayrton Senna himself, who’s regarded by many as the best Formula One driver in history. The NSX went on sale in 1990 with a 270-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 behind its seats. The unit was later updated to a 3.2-liter V-6 that cranked out 290 ponies. While its output wasn’t exactly impressive when compared to other supercars from the era, the NSX was incredibly fast due to its low curb weight. Zero to 60 took 5.1 seconds at launch, but the benchmark dropped to 4.5 seconds by the late 1990s. Production of the NSX ceased in 2005, when Honda announced plans to develop a successor. Fast-forward to the 2015 North American International Auto Show, where after years of teasing and concept reveals, the 2016 Acura NSX has finally become a reality.
