The NSX Still Sounds Weird With A Custom Exhaust, But It Sure Is Fast

Drag Race

We just can't get behind the sound of Acura's V6.

In the second season of The Grand Tour, we saw the Acura NSX get annihilated by the all-electric Rimac Concept One and the V12 Lamborghini Aventador. That three-way drag race was obviously stacked against the NSX, because it is still an incredibly fast car in most comparisons. However, we never really cared for how its twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 sounds. There are much better sounding V6 engines on the market, but could an aftermarket exhaust fix that?

DragTimes filmed an Acura NSX with a FabSpeed exhaust and headers, which definitely makes the car sound better than stock. While we still wouldn't put on par with the best exhausts on the market, the FabSpeed unit does give the NSX a much better growl.

Even if the NSX is not our favorite supercar, it does have many endearing qualities. For instance, this NSX set a quarter-mile time of 11.299 seconds at 124 mph. This makes it extremely comparable to cars like the Nissan GT-R and McLaren 570S. We haven't seen too many drag race videos involving the NSX, which may change after people find out how quick it is.
