Spotted in Japan: Honda NSX by Liberty Walk almost looks like it belongs on the track

Article by Christian A., on February 21, 2018

The Acura NSX, even though it has been produced in the United States, is rightfully claimed as one of its own by the legions of fans in Japan, where it is known as a Honda. For this particular example we are going to talk about, the owner definitely took it even further.

When looking at the images, it seems like the said car has been shot at Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji fish market, or some other similar market there. But it isn’t the place that matters, but the subject. As you can see here, this hybrid supercar looks like it is part of the country’s Super GT championship. But Honda is known for having several NSX-GTs in the series’ top GT500 class.

Though this Acura NSX looks a lot like a track focused car, it actually is a road going car. The supercar was modified by Liberty Walk and has been given a full body kit, making it look wider with a meaner demeanor. It had also been given enough aerodynamic enhancements that it will remind you of an air force fighter - blacked out like the one in the photo.

As for the suspension, you would notice that it had been dropped much lower to the tarmac on a custom air suspension, paired with a set of Forgiato Maglia ECL alloys, also blacked out with a matte finish and contrasted with silver rims.

After all those physical enhancements, we have not heard anything regarding the powertrain, whether the tuner has given it a more powerful engine or not. But since the NSX is already powerful, we do not know whether it still needs a power upgrade.

As it rolls off Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, the NSX already is equipped with a 3.5 liter twin turbo V6 that is paired with three electric motors and a nine speed dual clutch transmission.

Both these motors, gasoline and electric, when working together, can produce 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. And in only 3.1 seconds, it will be able to sprint to 60 miles per hour from a standstill, before it continues to its top speed of 190 miles per hour.

In other news, the new $150,000 hybrid supercar, the Acura NSX has been tested on a very snowy day, together with models like the Porsche Macan GTS, Mercedes AMG C45, Dodge Challenger GT AWD, Alfa Romeo Giulia & Stelvio and some other - of course, in their snow tires. And after testing all these cars, it was concluded that the NSX was a brilliant car to drive - in fact, it is said to be really impressive even in snowy conditions, making it the perfect car for any season.
