Even though some years back, having a hybrid was a big deal but not today. Just think of the Acura NSX and you are at it. This is not a gentle but a hybrid sports car. it has sense of silence but have a deadly horsepower of 573. Think of silently entering your local town but then leaving with a clear announcement that you were there is possible with this supercar. It is a compromise of the mid-engine sports car coming with a luxury sedan and combining this with a naughty gnarly. The best description is an Acura-borne exercise in dichotomy. Steering the supercar will be a joy the excellent daily driver.
It assumes serenity when you drive it in the silent mode. You remind everyone that this is a serious sports car by dialing the knob to turbo mode which gives a healthy growl. The growl will surely invite some finger points at the motor while others will park and come closer to give a look at this supercar. The automotive envy behind it is its glory. Even the first generation of the NSXs were coveted among collectors; the pillars of the Japanese scene. The loud bang with which the NSX landed with was heard far and wide. It is great to live driving the 2017 NSX. Its look just means business.
It has retained the black roof and with wide taillights that are signatures of its first generations. The functional air intake gives the motor a menacing face. It is perfected with a cherry red body that reflects light at just the right wavelengths. It has a remarkably comfy interior. If you need seats that hug you, you surely got them. Some people describe at as a cockpit rather than a drivers seat. The favorite of many is the tiny detail hidden stitching on the steering wheel. It feels like a seam of a well-sewn jacket. The buttons, knobs, and screen are the reminders that NSX is a trusty straight shooting Honda.
The NSX may not have achieved but has the mustard to compete with the Ferrari 458s of the world. This is, however, dependent on what the driver wants to achieve. The Acura is not dismissible with claims of 1-60 in three seconds and a top speed of 191 miles per hour. Honda really took time to tweak the car on its way to production. The resolution was to settles on the twin turbo V6 with 500 horsepower and 406 pounds per feet torque. Though fast and reckless when you want it be, it is easy to contain it. The sports plus mode makes the sweet spot.
