The new 2017 Acura NSX is known to have the lowest center of gravity among its competitors. The wheels are forged light alloy with a high lateral stiffness wherein the front wheels are about 245/35ZR19 while the rear tires are 305/30ZR20 that provides the NSX's interface on the road.

This car has a seating capacity only for two. Its body shape is designed to effectively minimize the aerodynamic drag while creating a balanced front-to-rear down force.

The 2017 Acura NSX interior is a driver-centered concept. Exemplary ergonomics were developed for the NSX's sports seats. The company also uses a sophisticated dual-pinion electric power steering system and a variable gear ratio.

As to the shapes, materials, technologies and layout of the car, it is optimized to improve the driving experience. Materials used like the leather Alcantara is also carefully selected for an ideal output and the drivers and passenger's comfort satisfaction.

The 2017 Acura NSX has a standard nine-speed dual clutch automatic and all-wheel-drive. The car model utilizes a sophisticated dual-pinion electric power steering system and a variable gear ratio. Its Twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine supplies the primary power with an output of 500 horsepower and a 406 lb-ft of torque in the peak of the driving force at the driver's disposal. For the acceleration from 0 to 60 mph, it takes about 3 seconds and gets to the top speed of 191 mph.
