The new NSX platform will spawn a family sports cars including the much anticipated Acura/Honda NSX Type R. This digital rendering by Autocar gives us a good idea of what the high-performance model might look like.
According to NSX project boss Ted Klaus, various versions of the NSX are being considered. The company is currently looking into a non-hybrid, convertible, all-electric and a stripped down version of the NSX.
That lightweight model would probably be the Type R. Furthermore, a convertible NSX sounds like an exciting proposition and so does a non-hybrid NSX powered by a V6 twin-turbo engine.
That said, the NSX Type R will sport a more aggressive look to match its performance. The rendering here reveals a low slung NSX with an extended front splitter, side skirts and diffuser package.
As you know, Acura/ Honda NSX uses a twint-turbo V6 engine coupled with three electric motors completing the hybrid powertrain. The combined output of the system is 573 hp and generates 406 lb-ft of torque. That’s mated to a 9-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission.
