For all the technology it has to offer, $157,000 is not all that much money for the new NSX. Unfortunately, though, the car has been put down by most automobile reporters for being a bit too control and without a spirit. Even though this may be so, the car is actually one of the gemstones of today’s globe. In order to make everyone see that, it looks like Honda may be readying a new version of the car. At this point, these are just rumors but it looks like this new version may be released with the future 2019 Acura NSX Type R. That’s right! The Kind R logo will ultimately come back to the NSX after more than 2 years. Even though the original was only available in Japan, it quickly became one of the most capable cars on the market at the time.
Even though the current model is a capable car, it looks like this isn’t enough for today’s market. The new NSX-R will be built on the same platform as the ongoing model. However, within resources are saying the car will have more that is similar to the GT3 race-car. If this is the situation then anticipate the production Type R to feature a brand new suspension system. The car is likely going to receive the inboard suspension in the front and at the back with electronically adjustable dampers. These will be quicker to reply than those on the standard design while also being less heavy. The car is also anticipated to obtain significantly less heavy braking system in an attempt to decrease unsprung weight. The end result should make the 2019 Acura NSX Type R faster to accelerate and to stop.
2019 Acura NSX Type R Design
We managed to see quite a few Kind R growth prototypes up until now. Unfortunately, none of them had any new parts on the exterior. This may suggest the upcoming Type R will be quite similar to the current NSX or that it may feature aerodynamic elements from the GT3 car in which case Acura doesn’t really need to test them anymore. Expect the Type R to be more aggressive than the base NSX with a bigger splitter in the top side, a bigger diffuser/extractor and possibly a limited backside. The tires, on the other hand, are going to be just as big as before but Honda is anticipated to give the car better tires than those on the continuous design.
Not much is known about its interior. However, considering this will be an all-out efficiency car, it secures to believe it will be removed down. Expect carbon-fiber seats with less padding than before, likely a new steering wheel and possibly different upholstery. The end result will be more similar to a race-car than to the current NSX.
2019 Acura NSX Type R Engine & Specs
There have been quite a few rumors suggesting the 2019 Acura NSX Type R will ditch the electric motors. This has been said numerous times by now but even so, we doubt anything like this may occur. Even though the GT3 car doesn’t function the electrically powered engines, this is because that car has to abide by category rules. Because of that, it is safe to believe the Type R will be quite just like the manufacturing NSX. Expect it to boast a similar 3.5 liter twin-turbo V6 and a similar set of three electric motors. However, this time around the output is more than likely going to be closer to 650 horsepower and well over 500 lb-ft of torque. This bump should allow the new model to dip under 3.0 seconds for a 0 to 60 MPH run.
Cost Estimate & Release Date of 2019 Acura NSX Type R
The cost estimate has yet to be revealed but if all of these make it into production, it is safe to assume the 2019 Acura Type R might cost north of $250,000 which would create it the more costly Acura to date. The NSX Type R should be released in 2018 as 2019 model.
