2014 Acura NSX

Acura has elevated the important thing spring rates, beefed inside the rear anti-roll bar (from 17.5mm to 19.1), and added more authority for that wheel-and-tire package. The important thing wheels (forged aluminum alloy all-around) vary from 7.-by-16 inches to 7.-by-17s, the rears from 8.5-by-17 to 9.-by-17s. Tire specs vary from 215/45-16 to 215/40-17 in-front and 245/40-17 to 255/40-17 within the rear.

With assorted half-day’s terrorizing back streets in California’s Santa Cruz Hillsides, that extra 10mm of rear contact patch, together with the the very best-selling retuned suspension, appear to reduce oversteer and increase driver certainty in a great deal of different radii.

This enhances the problem of techniques the NSX’s performance compares using this within the other large-title gamers during this general cost realm. At 290 horsepower, its all-aluminum 3.2-liter (automatic versions obtain a 252-h . p . 3.-liter) DOHC 24-valve VTEC V-6 is one of the sunshine side within the energy ledger in comparison getting its competition. The Porsche 911 Carrera flat-six might be 3.6 liters and 315 h . p . (from three.4 and 300) for 2002, the ’02 Corvettes Z06 V-8 provides 405 h . p . (up from 385 in ’01), along with the Dodge Viper V-10 brings 450 ponies for that party, with 500 due pick up.

The best NSX we examined (This summer season 1999) was an Alex Zanardi limited-edition model, which scaly in lighter (2970 pounds versus 3153) compared to curb weight Acura lists for the 2002 model. It sprinted to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds, covered the quarter-mile in 13.2 at 106 miles per hour, stopped from 70 miles per hour in 164 feet, and attracted .93 g across the skidpad.
