Type R Version of NSX

Type R Version of NSXThe hypothetical Acura NSX variants lists doesn’t just end there, however. Klaus also hinted at the possibility of a “non-electrified” version that, we assume, would adopt the gasoline engine/rear-wheel-drive combo that the GT3 racing car employs. Add in the fact that Klaus didn’t explicitly state that an NSX convertible isn’t in the cards and you’re left with the very tantalizing situation where Acura seems to be in the position of developing an NSX variant to suit everyone’s powertrain and driving experience preferences. Whether or not they all see the light of day is another matter entirely, but there’s no denying the future looks incredibly bright for the Acura NSX at the moment.

The whole hybrid ethos runs to the NSX’s core, as Robinson explains. “It’s not like we made a standard car and then added that sport hybrid system with torque vectoring. We integrated [the hybrid system] very early in the project, so the chassis was developed around the potential for that torque vectoring.”

I was expecting something numb-feeling and detached what with all that technology under the NSX’s skin, but that’s just not the case. I’d like a little less power assistance in the electric steering, but communication from the tarmac is impressive, and the chassis is giving me a decent idea of what it’s up to.

The first version of the 2017 NSX, which might see the light of day as a production model, was showcased at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, where Honda entered a lightweight version of its hybrid sports car. According to Klaus, this lightweight model was “in the general direction” that Honda wants to go with the NSX.
