Think of it as throttle response deluxe. Sandwiched between the V-6 and the 9-speed DCT, the direct drive supercar electric motor is attached directly to the driveshaft for immediate torque and acceleration. At the track, Launch Mode can slice off .5 seconds and deliver pressed-back-in-your-seat g-force the instant you release the brake.
The brain of the power unit is also its primary battery. Positioned low and center, it sits behind the seats, directing energy to electric motors front and rear.
G-loading you can feel comes from two independent electric motors at the front wheels that deal out immediate torque on the move for athletic acceleration that makes passing absolutely effortless.
NSX is the first supercar powered by a bespoke Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™, 573-hp power unit that is an absolute game-changer. NSX Engine power and direct electric torque combine for a new kind of dynamic performance, not just in acceleration, but in steering and braking too. This is interwoven dynamics in the purest sense: exhilarating performance powered by precision.
Speed, power, and amazing ingenuity live inside this clever beast: a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged, 75-degree, 3.5-liter DOHC V-6 engine with dry-sump lubrication. It’s the product of countless days and nights of relentless engineering perfected on the track.
The race-ready 9-speed DCT brings it all to the table. With an electronically-operated wet dual-clutch, high-rigidity shift forks, double-cone synchronizers, and electronic shift actuator, shift timing is precisely synchronized with power unit torque – and that means super-fast smooth-as-silk shifting.
Maximize cooling across key heat exchangers from front to back.
Directs airflow down the rear glass to cool the transmission and engine room.
Rear brakes are partially cooled via specially-tuned air deflectors directing air through the subframe.
The Synergy Of Man And Machine Begins Here, where the sense of NSX as an extension of self becomes tangible. The wheel grasp, the pedal feel, the seat designed to support its driver through even the most extreme maneuvers. It’s a command center where intuitive controls, unobstructed views, and world-class acoustics make every drive extraordinary.
The simplicity of form and elements essential to space form the foundation of the NSX cockpit design. Minimalist in its aesthetic and spacious in its dimensions, the NSX interior was precisely engineered to create a richly supportive domain for the driver – even those whose height is in the 95th percentile.
The racing inspired shape allows an unobstructed view over the top and greater leg clearance at the bottom.
Slightly-indented finger holds are located at both 10:00 and 2:00 and at 9:00 and 3:00 to satisfy the preferences of most drivers.
NSX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® applies true torque vectoring with every turn. The electric Twin Motor Unit (TMU) directs torque to each front wheel independently to maximize the effectiveness of each tire's traction as the turn is executed. It makes for uncannily precise cornering on road or track, even at speed – the car planted but eager, urging the driver on. The dynamics are such that acceleration can come much earlier out of every turn, which translates into faster lap times – and makes precision line tracing an exhilarating exercise in the freedom of spirited driving.
Stopping on demand is a beautiful thing. NSX super sports brakes are powerful, linear, predictable and virtually fade-free. High-performance Brembo® hydraulic brakes and hybrid regenerative braking are seamlessly integrated to confidently deliver authentic, high-fidelity response anywhere, anytime.
