Total system output is 573 hp and 476 lb-ft. How does it get there? It all starts with the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD powertrain. It consists of a 75-degree (lower center of gravity), twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter V6, made specifically for the NSX. It's good for 500 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. Behind the engine is the rear assist motor, with 47 hp and 100 lb-ft. Hanging off the rear of that is the nine-speed dual-clutch, developed in-house. That's not all. In between the front wheels is the Twin Motor Unit (TMU), a pair of 36-hp, 54-lb-ft electric motors that add or subtract forces to their respective sides. A lithium-ion battery pack is behind the pair of seats, on the cold side of the firewall.
The body is mostly aluminum, save for a few strategic pieces of carbon fiber - like the roof - and steel - mainly for reinforcement. The really trick part is the "ablation casting" on the crash structure.
Don't expect the styling to blow you away, or make you emote like a Ferrari. It's designed to be your everyday supercar. Very Honda.
You can dial in your performance level via the dynamic mode selector. You have the option of Quiet, Sport, Sport Plus, and Track.
0-60 happens in about 3.0 seconds. And make no mistake about it. The NSX is fast, and comfy.
Steering lacks feel, but it can carry insane speed through a corner, and is very livable.
All in all, the NSX is a unique supercar. It approaches supercar performance, design, and comfort in an entirely different way. Which really makes it pretty similar to the original.

The new NSX is heavy, complicated, and expensive. But is it worth it?
