Can greatness be repeated?
It’s void of all of those fancy schmancy high-tech items like a dual-clutch transmission, infotainment and a hybrid systems. So what if it’s a bit of a driving in traffic burden because of its three pedals, the first generation Acura NSX is still one of my favorite cars ever. It was so groundbreaking when it debuted in 1990 that it stayed in production until 2005 with few updates. In many ways, the original NSX changed the rules for supercars, proving it was possible for them to have superb build quality, instead of interiors made from literally upgraded cardboard.
And it handled itself on the track beautifully. But what about today’s second-gen NSX? With production beginning next month, the new NSX has quite a legacy to live up to, and thanks to the crew of Roadshow and Graham Rahal, here’s one of the first comparison tests.
