What does it take for an auto company to succeed in this over saturated market? Well, Acura has come up with an answer to that very question with the unveiling of the new 2016 Acura NSX. This supercar is in the class of vehicles like the Ford GT and the Lexus LFA. What makes the NSX so special? It started 25 years ago when it was created to show that a Japanese auto maker can compete with the Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s of the world. Back then the NSX was a first of its kind for a Japanese auto make with its exotic, aggressive and fast supercar.
The vehicle will sport a twin turbocharged engine that is coupled with three electric motors that will surely give the driver whiplash (in a good way obviously). This engine required Acura to redesign the entire vehicle that was shown two years ago at the NAIAS because the engine was bigger then first anticipated and it needed more airflow to the intercoolers to power the twin-turbo. Acura felt they needed to make the NSX bigger and badder if they were going to compete in that price point. The most astonishing aspect about the new NSX is the time frame it took Acura to take the vehicle from idea to production model; only 3 years.
The vehicle is going to make people drool when they see it, but the price tag of $150,000 will do the same for the average joe. For people that have the obey for this vehicle, Acura will start taking orders for the NSX in August of this year.
It is the unveiling of vehicles like the NSX that makes the North American International Auto Show so special this year. This is 1 of many new vehicles that are not just concept models. These vehicles will be on showroom floors within the next year. Keep your eye out for any transporters you see on the road in the coming months because these vehicles will be on them. Only the best shippers will have the privilege to transport vehicles like the NSX and AT Quote Services will be first in line.
