The Texas-based tuner team has a long history with the NSX, working on the first-generation NSXs in the 1990s.
“When I first started the business 25 years ago, one of the first cars we modified was the original NSX,” says John Hennessey. “I love that car and have been following the progress on the new generation like every other enthusiast.”

Hennessey is focusing its attention on boosting the longitudinally mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged DOHC V6 engine. The V6 is already formidable – 500 hp, 406 lb-ft of torque, a top speed of 191 mph, and reaches zero to 60 mph in around three seconds. The tuners are hoping to add an additional 50 to 100 horses, and improve acceleration by 0.5 seconds over a quarter mile.
The 2017 Acura NSX began production last month, starting at $156,000. Expect the enhancements to the car to be ready for the public in six month’s time.
