We had the opportunity to drive and admire the very hard-to-find NSX Type S in Atlanta. Acura is adding a bit of the high-performance, sports-design DNA of the NSX to every model in their fresh line-up. This elusive and exclusive NSX Type S model is in the final year of its production and will be limited to 300 units in the US of the mere 350 in total production.
This hot Type S has quicker acceleration, sharper cornering, and a more emotional driving experience than most supercars costing thousands more thanks to the performance generated by its 600 horsepower power unit.
NSX is an incredible success story for Acura, leading the reestablishment of Acura as a performance brand and setting the stage for the return of Type S,” said Jon Ikeda, Vice President, and Acura Brand Officer.
“We’re a company of enthusiasts, and we’re already investigating what the next generation of sports cars should be in the coming electrified era.”
The NSX is instantly recognizable by its distinctive and more aggressive styling. With unique 5-spoke wheels, stickier Pirelli P-Zero tires, retuned Adaptive Damper System, Type-S decals, and the standard carbon-fiber roof are distinct design and performance highlights.
The Gotham Gray matte paint befits this car’s masculine stance and aggressive demeanor.
Spending time with this NSX Type S was a driving dream, and the adventure gave us insight into that strength and style found in every Acura today.
