At the Tokyo Auto Show we were able to see latest version of the 2015 Acura NSX. This is highly anticipated vehicle that will come as a second generation of this sports car and until now it always managed to attract a lot of attention from media and public.
One of the segments that are most interesting when it comes to 2015 Acura NSX is related to the price of this vehicle. There are no official information’s but we do expect it to be pricey. One of the sources suggest that it could be offered with price tag of $ 130.000.
2015 Acura NSX Price
Only visible difference that we are getting from this prototype is a different paint job. Looking on the outside there are no changes and we are getting identical vehicle like the one that was displayed at the Detroit Auto Show held last January.
Changes that we are getting are related to what is under the hood and affects handling and suspension. Now we are getting even more potent and sportier Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system or short SH-AWD. This makes 2015 Acura NSX and its powertrain even more potent and more performance oriented.
Same setup as before is used and we are getting three electric motors and gasoline unit. There is active torque vectoring and regenerative braking like we had in the original version. We have received some info about what to expect and we can say that there are some really nice surprises and improvements that we will be getting.

Biggest change might be the position of the engine that now is fitted to a longitudinal configuration instead of the transverse position. This change improves dynamic balance and packaging allowing space to be used better. We could notice that the V angle of the engine that we have received in this prototype is wider than what we have for 3.5 liter engine in Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD model but we did not get any confirmation’s or explanation from car maker.
Displacement of this engine is another segment about which we do not have accurate information but it expected to be between 3.5 and 3.7 liter. There is no doubt that we will be seeing two turbochargers and direct injection while the latest VTEC technology will be implemented in this engine. Position of intercoolers suggests that they will be getting cold air through the air ducts placed ahead of C pillars.
Specs Of Acura NSX
We are still waiting to see official numbers when it comes to performances and power. At this moment we know that it should offer more than 500 hp. It seams that the high efficiency dry sump oiling system will be used and that is something we could see on many high power performance vehicles. For the transmission we only know that it will offer more than si gears and that there will be a dual clutch system.
Battery pack capacity and info is still secret but we do know it will be small and packed between engine bay and passenger compartment. What we also could hear is that the 2015 Acura NSX will be capable of making short runs on electric power only and that in that case it will use front drive motors only.
