In 2016 we were blessed with the long-awaited rebirth of the Honda NSX. Due to the success of the NSX throughout the 90s the new generation NSX had a lot to live to up to for car enthusiasts around the world.
For starters, the new generation NSX has a twin turbo V6 electric hybrid engine capable of pumping out 550bhp (that’s almost twice as much as its predecessor!) and prices start from £130k which puts it in direct competition with German competitors like the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 turbo.
The low roofline and cavernous side vents of the NSX give it character defining aggression that stands out in any setting. The headlights are outlined by sharp blade-like bumpers and the bright LEDs will dazzle any onlooker that walks by past. Looking like a cross between an Audi R8 and McLaren 650S with its aluminium composite and steel body, the new NSX really does cast a striking profile.
Looking at the rear end of the car you wouldn’t believe this is powered by an eco-friendly hybrid engine. With four central exhausts, LED rear-lights (as bright as the fronts), a racing-inspired diffuser and fat 295-section rear tyres this thing really does look the business with few cars on the road coming close to matching it for presence.
Assertive Performance to Match
With the hybrid powertrain in the NSX, Honda are able to create a force something known as Direct Yaw Control. What this does is essentially transform the heavy weight of the car to feel much lighter and sprightlier.
The combined services of the petrol V6 and electric hybrid powertrain will boost you up to as much as 191mph. Honda haven’t officially released any actual set-in-stone figures on the NSX’s performance but all the same they aren’t denying the claims that it can do 0-62 in 2.9 seconds.
The NSX comes with a nine-speed dual clutch gearbox fitted with shift paddles behind the steering wheel. It will shift automatically for you or you can switch it up and start doing the shifting yourself. It does an impressive job of both so you won’t find yourself wishing for a manual gearbox like you do with some automatics.
The overall ride on the road is sublime as it comes with four driving modes to choose from with which you can alter the magnetorheological dampers to suit any road surface.
