    • Acura NSX finally getting the Type R treatment for 2020 model year?

      Acura seems to think it can address lackluster NSX sales with a higher performance Type R variant. The problem is the NSX is overpriced, heavy, and does not deliver the performance you would expect for the price tag in today's climate.


      Honestly, a Nissan GT-R is a better choice if you are into performance especially when the price and aftermarket is taken into account. Acura missed badly with the second generation NSX.

      So what will they change? Output is expected to be bumped to 641 from the current 573 which is a step in the right direction.

      The 3.5 liter twin turbo V6 is expected to get components from the rear wheel drive NSX race car. They will not make it rear wheel drive though which honestly, they should.

      Shaving 300 to 400 pounds off the car should be the focus. More power won't fix the issues buyers have with the NSX or draw in the classic NSX crowd.

      Acura/Honda still does not seem to get it.

        Man I hope this is true, they should call it an NSX-R like the OG one.

        Hopefully they do something cool with it but I wouldn't be too optimistic.

        Well with how hot the type r is, and how the nsx needs a boost they may do it.

        Yeah I think it also has a full electric mode, otherwise the electric assist does damper noise.
