Acura Drops Tech Specs for 573 Horsepower NSX

The Acura NSX has seemed more like a fantasy than reality for the past few years.

The fairytale is finally coming true as Acura announced the complete specs for the 2017 NSX this week.

Part II: Honda’s Rebirth of a Supercar, and a Company

Just as it had with the Acura flagship NSX, Honda applied many of its strengths in powertrain innovation, hybrid systems, super-handling technology and advanced body construction to create the Honda FCV Concept―a car that encompasses over 25 years of the automaker’s expertise in developing fuel cell technology. Making its North American debut in Detroit, the successor to the 4-passenger FCX Clarity is slated for the U.S. consumption in 2016. The vehicle contains a 33 percent smaller fuel cell stack, along with a 60 percent improvement in power density. Consequently, the upgrade translates into an estimated driving range of more than 300 miles, while increasing interior space to accommodate five passengers. With a refueling time of about three minutes, the advanced fuel cell vehicle aims to be more livable for American drivers than ever before.

Part I: Honda’s Rebirth of a Supercar, and a Company

Since its arrival to the U.S. market in 1959, Honda has developed a reputation for excellence in every area of its business, which includes everything from automobiles, to power sports offerings, to power equipment products. The company’s knack for innovation led to it quickly becoming a leader in engineering, with its automobiles becoming synonymous with such virtues as safety, green “Earth Dreams” technologies, and racing. When the original Acura NSX, or New Sports eXperimental, arrived in 1990, Honda shocked the automotive industry with its F1-inspired supercar that was fitted with a mid-mounted 3.0L V6 engine and a number of firsts, including an all-aluminum, monocoque body and Honda’s proprietary VTEC variable valve timing system. A wave of iconic vehicles would come to follow, including the sporty Acura Integra and Honda S2000 models. One of the results was the creation of Honda fanboys and fangirls from Generation Y and Millennials alike—but the fun would not last forever.
