We have a good news, the new 2023 Acura NSX Type S has been confirmed, and we can expect its release sometime next year. Unfortunately, the upcoming high-performance car will be the last year’s model that will be discontinued. This car will be available in only 300 copies in the U.S.
However, the good news is that the Acura NSX will introduce a more modern exterior and interior, wearing the vaunted Type S badge all over. On top of that, the manufacture will add a new twin-turbo V-6 hybrid powertrain that should deliver around 600-horses. Acura set a price for the new Type S model as the detailed standard features list.
2023 Acura NSX Type S Redesign
The 2023 Acura NSX Type S model looks more attractive than the regular NSX. In general, it dominates on the front featuring a carbon fiber front spoiler reshaped to reduce front aerodynamic. Considering that this model has a powerful engine, the development team managed to cool it through a more prominent front grille opening.
This way, Acura NSX Type S is getting extra direct air to the radiators. You can also upgrade this model with Total Airflow Management, which brings a new nose with more angular air intakes and a more prominent diffuser at the back. The diffuser on the back will increase the high-speed stability.
On the inside, the latest 2023 Acura NSX Type S features very supportive seats and many new technologies. The cabin is undoubtedly comfortable with a premium feel, offering plenty of luxurious amenities that one can expect from an Acura. It can easily compete with the best from England and Germany.
Stepping in, you will first notice a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated navigation. The new model also comes standard with an ELS Studio nine-speaker stereo. However, like before, the NSX’s still lack driver-assistance features. The standard package includes front and rear parking sensors, lane assist, and automatic braking.
2023 Acura NSX Type S Powertrain Specs
Thanks to the new powerful hybrid system, the 2023 Acura NSX Type S will be in line with rivals like the Audi R8 or the McLaren 570S. This system, according to news, will be able to run in 3.1-second from zero to 60 mph with the 573-hp version of its hybrid powertrain.
The engine consists of a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 with three electric motors. It uses a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and one of the electric motors works as a team to power the rear wheels. However, the other two electric motors operate independently to drive the front wheels.
Release Date and Price
The new Acura’s flagship model, NSX Type S, will reportedly arrive in the first quarter of 2022. Besides many exterior changes, the new model will also come with a sportier cabin. Acura did a great job adding more quality materials inside and much more technology.
On top of that, this model is powered by a new twin-turbo V-6, and three electric motors team up to deliver excellent acceleration. Moreover, this car is not pocket-friendly at all. It starts at $171,495 for the fully loaded model.
