Watch two Acura NSXs scorch the Nurburgring
Some intrepid spy shooter captured these two Acura NSXs blasting around the Nürburgring. Without being there in person with a decibel meter, it’s hard to tell if they’re necessarily louder than stock cars, but they sure seem quick. Why test the cars now, when they’ve been on sale for a while now?
Rumors are swirling that this could be a hardcore variant. It’s unclear if Honda would call it a Type R, but a midlife refresh with a bit more power or a special limited edition with some extra kick wouldn’t be unprecedented. The original NSX had several such models, and recent sports cars like the S2000 had low-volume editions, like the Club Racer variant in the United States and the Type S in Japan. Watch the video and draw your own conclusions about what this is or isn’t. One thing’s for sure: It’s not a pure-EV variant.
In other things recent about the NSX, we learned last month that an NSX GT3 non-hybrid race car version will go on sale soon. And here’s our first drive of the US Acura-badged NSX from back in 2015. And here’s another video from inside the cockpit during an open track day back in June. Watch all the other cars get out of the way and get left behind:
