Built to redefine supercar capabilities that provide intense acceleration, powerful brake system, and unparalleled handling, the Acura NSX is truly a cutting-edge design. Still, Andreas Ezelius had a better idea and created an absolutely impressive NSX Concept. Still, we dont think it is better than the latest model and here is why.
The 2017 model is made with various materials using various construction methods and languages to support its enhanced rigidity. The 2017 Acura NSX is mainly improved with the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, which excites the torque vectoring at all driving conditions.
This new system maximizes the capacities of the vehicle’s electric motors in order to produce a yaw moment under any given circumstance. As a result, the Acura NSX can deliver better precision in an instant. Furthermore, with the Super Hybrid SH-AWD solution, drivers can execute exceptionally precise line tracing as they aim to deliver the best performance whether on the track or on the highway.
This technology also increases the stability of the vehicle and requires less workload, allowing both novice and expert drivers to maximize their capabilities as they drive the Acura NSX. Cornering is made easier with the Twin Motor Unit and the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) features of the new vehicle. The VSA can be disabled anytime by selecting the Track mode setting and holding the VSA “Off” button, which is located on a panel beside the steering wheel, for at least six seconds.
Meanwhile, in terms of braking, the 2017 Acura NSX uses both the muscular mechanical braking system and the regenerative braking features. This provides a precise brake delivery even with just natural pedal feel while evoking kinetic energy for the lithium-ion hybrid battery. Integrated Dynamics System The 2017 Acura NSX boasts of having its very own Integrated Dynamic System that offers four different modes: Quiet, Sport, Sport Plus, and Track.
Basically, all dynamic chassis and powertrain systems are integrated into one— brakes, engine, magnetorheological dampers, Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, steering, throttle, transmission, and VSA control systems. The Integrated Dynamics System dials up all characteristics depending on the driver’s needs and even on the driving conditions. Under the Quiet mode, the vehicle focuses on electric-only driving at lower acceleration. This allows the Acura NSX to maximize energy efficiency while minimizing overall noise.
Meanwhile, the Sport mode maximizes the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system to provide a direct response depending on the driving inputs. Under this mode, the Intake Sound Control and the Active Exhaust Valve systems are activated to provide more intake and an improved exhaust sound, offering a more dramatic driving experience. On the other hand, the Sport Plus mode enhances drivetrain response and dynamic capabilities with intensely aggressive throttle mapping.
Because it uses the electric motor torque at a maximum level, the vehicle runs at more explosive acceleration. Moreover, the Direct Yaw Control, Agile Handling Assist (AHA), Electric Power Steering, and the magnetorheological dampers systems work hand-in-hand to further improve vehicle agility for a spirited driving experience.
Lastly, the Track mode yields the most aggressive parameters to allow the Acura NSX to achieve maximum acceleration at a consistent lap time. It also focuses on the lithium-ion battery state-of-charge to sustain consistent torque level delivery and direct yaw moment.
