What the heck was Acura thinking?
We’ve been waiting for the new Acura NSX for what seems like forever know. With its sharp angles and mid-mounted twin-turbo V6 producing 573 hp thanks to three electric motors, the NSX was supposed to be the Japanese supercar that laughs in the face of Porsche, Ferrari and Audi. Unfortunately, Motor Trend got behind the wheel of the new NSX and the supercar’s disappointing to say the least. Unlike it’s iconic predecessor, the new NSX’s styling is off, it weighs too much and is focused on being an everyday supercar.
With pricing for the NSX at $150K, there’s no way this vehicle can hold the candle to the Audi R8, Porsche 911 Turbo or the McLaren 570S. Why Acura, why?
