I know it looks like something out of a video game, but the 2017 Acura NSX is real, it’s finally ready, and they sent on to the Sonoma Raceway for Motor Trend Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa to have a go in. He brought along a first-generation NSX to see how things have moved on.

2017 Acura NSX – First Track Test Review

So, how does the new Acura NSX looks, goes and feels? Cammisa has some interesting quibbles about all those aspects of the car.

But then again, they are mostly musings of a motoring journalist whose head is full of irrelevant stuff like understeer, lap times, and 0-60 times. The average buyers looking for something cool looking and high-tech with a hybrid motor are going to love this thing to death.
