After years of anticipation, Acura’s latest sports car has finally arrived sporting a hybrid turbocharged powertrain with 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. Owning such an exquisite machine will cost $157,800 including delivery, but for some, it’s a small price to pay for pure enjoyment while behind the wheel. Tipping the scales at 3,800 pounds, the Acura NSX might not be a lightweight but it holds its own on the track.
“This car does such an incredible job making it all feel so natural that it’s easy to forget that when you’re driving the Acura NSX, you’re driving the very first in a new generation of exotic cars,” said VP of Content, Colum Wood, in his review of the supercar.
