With the all-new second generation Acura NSX now more-or-less fully revealed you might expect the speculation around the car to stop. Or at least slow up. But already the company’s chief engineer has kickstarted another flurry of rumor and conjecture by hinting at a higher-spec Type R version of the car which might hit the showrooms in another two to three years.
Like the first generation NSX Type R, the new car will most likely include a number of chassis, drivetrain and aerodynamic enhancements designed to improve performance and handling. In anticipation of the new car, Hungarian automotive photoshopper X-Tomi has created a realistic rendering of the future car.
Acura still hasn’t confirmed the final technical specifications of the $150,000 standard NSX model, but they have said the twin-turbo V6 together with the three electric motors have a combined output of more than 550 horsepower. Enough to allow the all-wheel drive supercar to go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. The top speed hasn’t been specified yet.
Any NSX Type R model worth this long of a wait should shave a couple of tenths of a second off that acceleration time, while also being more dynamic on the track. By: diseno-art
