    2016 Acura NSX: Here at last, and ready for production


    It's here. Twenty-five years after Acura's original mid-engine screamer showed the world that exotics don't have to be temperamental, unlivable beasts, Acura has finally unveiled the production-ready 2016 NSX.

    Feast your eyes on the future of supercar performance, Acura style.

    The production NSX has the same sharp look and sleek lines as the concept first shown in 2012, stretched and morphed to fit the realities of a street machine.

    Nestled behind the seats is a longitudinal twin-turbo V6, 9-speed dual clutch transmission, and a "Sport Hybrid System" consisting of three separate motors and a battery array. The whole team kicks out "over 550 horsepower," per Acura.

    "When we began development, the notion of a hybrid supercar was still a very new idea," Acura's folks said at the unveiling. The engineering wasn't fully sussed out until very recently–the engine layout was changed from transverse to longitudinal in August 2013, after a running prototype had done a parade lap around Mid-Ohio. Since then, hybrid hypercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 have proven that the concept can work. These are the times we live in, folks.

    Thanks to that hybrid drivetrain, the new NSX offers four driving modes: Quiet, Sport, Sport+ and Track. The first mode allows for silent electric-only driving at low speed, with increasingly sharp and powerful responses as you turn the knob sport-ward.

    The whole drivetrain is crammed down low in the center of the platform, sending power to all four wheels via Acura's Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive. Inside, Acura says the exposed dashboard supports "reflects the design aesthetic of a naked sport bike."

    Acura says ordering for the 2016 NSX begins this summer, with deliveries expected later in the year. Expect pricing in the mid-$150,000 range.
