The new Acura NSX Concept price which has been rumored to be a little bit north of $100k features the same clean, modern and simple surfacing as the previous models.
Under the hood, Acura has placed an all-new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD three-motor, high-performance hybrid system that combines a V-6 engine with two electric motors driving the front wheels. Given the higher than $100,000 price range, the production version Acura NSX will target competing models from Lamborghini or Ferrari or hybrid powertrain Lexus LF-LC or maybe even to some extent Tesla Model S.
The upcoming BMW i8 is also a strong competitor for the NSX since it will combine a 1.5-liter in-line three-cylinder engine with two electric motors for a final output of about 400 horsepower. The Lexus LF-LC is also rumored to be offered with a hybrid powertrain which will combine a small four-cylinder gasoline engine with a turbocharger in the front and electric booster motors between the transmission and engine.
The interior has been built around Acura’s new “Human Support Cockpit” theme and it also offers a preview on the potential Acura NSX interior design Acura opted for outstanding visibility, an exotic driving position and offers an intuitive “Simple Sports Interface” that allows the driver to focus on the driving experience. Question is would you be willing to pay more than $100,000 on an Acura NSX or on a Tesla or on a lower end model of Ferrari or higher end models from BMW ?
