—The new Acura NSX may be a hybrid, but it’s a hybrid supercar. A mid-engine, all-wheel-drive, twin-turbo, hybrid slice of pure performance. With around 600 hp from its combined 3.5-liter V6 and three electric motors driving all four wheels, what you have is a balanced and capable car that can compete with other supercars nearly ten times its price. There are nine gears to work your way through as you pass 60 mph in just over three seconds and torque-vectoring to smooth you through the curves. All the while you can still look back fondly on the original NSX that made the 2017 model possible in the first place.Official description

The 2017 Acura NSX - abbreviated as Acura NSX '17 - is a mid-engined hybrid supercar by Acura featured in Forza Horizon 3 as part of the Alpinestars Car Pack, and as standard in all subsequent titles.

Synopsis

Sold as a Honda model outside of North America, the 2017 NSX is an AWD hybrid supercar that succeeds the original NSX produced in Japan between 1990 and 2005.

The 2017 Acura NSX is based on the 2012 Acura NSX Concept first shown at the 2012 North American International Auto Show, a two-door mid-engined coupe with all-wheel-drive. The NSX's engine is a 3.5L (3,493 cc) twin-turbocharged V6 that transmits power to the rear wheels and, is paired with three electric motors, Sport Hybrid All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission. The total combined power output is 573 hp (427 kW) and 623 ft·lb (845 N·m) of torque, although the Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the NSX has 577 hp (430 kW) instead.

Performance

The 2017 Acura NSX can accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.4 seconds, and boasts a top speed of 191 mph (307 km/h).

The 2017 Acura NSX is significantly faster than its predecessor, especially due to its hybrid powertrain, which allows it to do 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds, challenging the likes of the 2017 Nissan GT-R and Ferrari 458 Italia. The NSX's top speed, while not overly impressive, is still faster than most Japanese cars: 189 mph (305 km/h); that said, it might not be the best choice in fastest circuits, where it struggles a bit to reach speed. The 9-speed gearbox gives it great acceleration for the first 6-7 gears before petering out into longer, overdrive-oriented gears.

The NSX's decent cornering is helped by its torque-vectoring, which smooths out the car as it makes a turn. Nonetheless, the NSX might still feel a bit slippery if driven very aggressively.
