An Ode to the Present

Cars, Acura, Carlife

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but let us show you what we see as beautiful. We looked back at the raw history sown into the design in the Packard Sedan, now we want to look at the beauty in the newest 2017 models. The prize: the Acura NSX. Carlife is an auto repair store where we appreciate how to save you money to get your car running the best it can, but we also like to dream and talk cars. Any type of cars. Today’s highlight is a treasure.

History

Acura was the first luxury brand of the Japanese automaker Honda. It was introduced into the United States in 1986 where it sought to market as high performance. In 1990, the brand launched the NSX marketed as an exotic sports car that is more practical in order to rival other exotic European sports cars. Honda has been looking to reinvent itself after a few dark years and get its mark back in the luxury model cars.
The second generation of the NSX was launched in 2015 with a twin-turbocharged mid engine, nine speed dual-clutch transmission and a sport hybrid. This newer update on the NSX rivaled many other cars of the same style and was set to be a high performance car. The NSX brand and style of car has been used in many races, and shown to be in the top ranking of a high premium. With the positive improvements of the car over the years, they are continuing to reinvent themselves with their new 2017 model.

2017 Acura NSX

This car has shown some fortitude over the years. It has gone through body style and engine remakes over the years, but coming out in the top ten performance for premium sports cars. Creation of this model began two years ago, where a smaller work crew in Ohio spent countless hours together pouring over every detail of the car. This is a car you drive with style!
A few facts about the car itself include:
Vehicle Type: Mid-engine, front and mid-motor, four-wheel drive, 2 passenger, 2 door coupe
Engine Type: twin turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve V6, aluminum block and heads, port and direct fuel injection.
Performance: zero to 60mph 2.9 seconds; zero to 100 mph 7.6 seconds with a top speed of 191 mph
Fuel Economy: EPA city/highway, 19/26 mpg
Estimated Base Price: $155,000
The specifications of this model have made it a high luxury performance car that rivals the 911 twin turbo porsche and the McLaren 570S.

The Acura NSX is a work of art. It shows of the blood, sweat and tears poured into every aspect of the vehicle. It is true beauty combined with phenomenal technology. To talk more vehicular genius, come to Carlife and let’s dream together!
