"The NSX is the benchmark to which we compare all our other models in terms of
performance and quality," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, auto
sales. "Our lineup is stronger than it has ever been and the NSX is a crucial
component of that lineup. To many of our customers, it's an icon of our brand."
The NSX offers two distinct, mid-ship mounted powertrains. The first is a
lightweight, all-aluminum 3.2 liter, DOHC, 24-valve, 90-degree V-6 engine
coupled with a 6-speed, close-ratio manual transmission producing 290 horsepower
and 224 lb-ft of torque. The second is a 3.0-liter DOHC, 24-valve V-6 engine
with a 4-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission that generates 252
horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque.
Both NSX engines are equipped with Acura's patented Variable Valve Timing and
Lift Electronic Control (VTEC), a Variable Volume Induction System, direct
ignition and a computerized Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system pioneered
in Formula One racing. The NSX engine also features titanium connecting rods,
which are stronger and lighter than comparable steel connecting rods. ...Acura NSX: Page 2
