2019 Baby Acura NSX Price And Release Date – Not too long ago, Honda Motor Company had a lineup filled with fun and sporty cars, including the Prelude, CR-X and S2000, while the more luxurious Acura division had its offerings such as the Integra, RSX and, of course, the NSX. Fast-forward to today, and it’s not hard to see the brand has been focusing on strengthening its car and crossover lineup for most of the past decade as the sports cars have all died off.
2019 Baby Acura NSX Future
That will soon change, though, as Honda is bringing the 2016 Honda Civic Type R, and the 2016 Acura NSX is returning to the supercar world, but somewhere in the middle ground between these two cars, it looks like Honda is working on yet another sporty offering.
2019 Baby Acura NSX Exterior And Interior
Looking at the design, this vehicle shares cues with the recently introduced 2016 Honda S660 and the long-awaited, second-gen Acura NSX, but the small mirrors and outlandish styling still suggest that the car pictured in the images is more likely a concept car than a soon-to-be production vehicle. Still, with that kind of jumping point, it didn’t take long for our graphic artist to conjure up the fantastic rendering you see here, showing what could be an excellent mid-level performance roadster.With such an exterior design this aggressive, the interior of this car would be equally sporty. Like the NSX, the smaller sports car would offer the latest in-car technology, with the rest of the cabin likely focusing more on weight savings than luxury – especially if it does in fact have a Honda Honda badge instead of an Acura. Unlike the patent images, our rendering goes a step further by showing what this car would look like as an open-top roadster, which would make this small sports car even more fun to drive.
2019 Baby Acura NSX Engine
There is no telling what secrets are held by the bodywork of the vehicle shown in a patent image, but with the massive air intakes and vents at the rear of this car, it will surely have a mid-engine layout similar to the NSX and S660. Beyond that, reports indicate that this car will be powered by a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an output of around 330 horsepower, and a pair of electric motors at the front axle to provide an additional 70 horsepower, giving the car a combined output of 400 horsepower. Keeping weight low, the new model will use an aluminum frame with lots of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic, giving the car an estimated curb weight of close to 3,000 pounds.
2019 Baby Acura NSX Price And Release Date
Official pricing for the 2016 Acura NSX has not been revealed yet, but it is expected to fetch somewhere around $150,000 when it finally goes on sale. It doesn’t sound like Honda has plans of making the Baby an affordable sports car like the S2000, but it would still be exciting if it were priced close to the Alfa Romeo 4C and Porsche Cayman.
