The awesome engine is mated to a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) for the ultimate in crisp, powerful shifts. All this is enough to push the Acura NSX from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds. There’s more to the NSX than just power. It’s a true competitor in the supercar category with fine finishing details including a paint job that takes more than 20 hours of painstaking work per car. The interior is wrapped in your choice of leather, and the cockpit-effect styling makes the Acura NSX a veritable driver’s car. The “base” model NSX has virtually every feature you could ask for. Jewel-Eye LED headlights, AcuraLink The Next Generation, Navigation, proximity sensors, and ELS Studio Premium Audio are all standard equipment. Extras can be installed. Lit door sill plates, the Tech Package, and SiriusXM are all add-ons that can be purchased should you desire. While the Acura NSX isn’t for everybody, pieces of the elite Acura machine are used in other Acura models.
