The new NSX is a hybrid sports car powered by 3.5 L twin-turbo V6 engine and three electric motors, two of which form part of the “SH-AWD” all wheel drive drivetrain. The transmission is a 9-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic. Its body utilizes a space frame design, which is made from aluminum, ultra-high strength steel, and other rigid and lightweight materials, some of which are the world’s first applications.
Unlike the first generation, the 2017 NSX is designed and manufactured in the United States. Compared to the previous generation, this version of the NSX is described as an American muscle meets European exotic. The exhaust sounds completely different from the original. While the original model sounds like an Italian exotic car, this new model has an exhaust that is heavily inspired by the original muscle cars from the 1960s, particularly the 1965 Ford Mustang or the 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle.
