The 2018 Acura NSX Sports Car is as sexy as Mariah Carey posing in Hollywood magazines. It will leave your eyes popping. This sports car combines a turbocharged V-6 engine with hybrid components. All this means the NSX is a supercar that can hit the track and also be a daily driver. The Acura NSX first hit the market in the 1990s as a supercar that was all about mechanical purity. The NSX made a comeback in 2017 bringing together clutches, turbos, batteries, servos, and motors to come up with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) high tech supercar which creates a driving feel instead of delivering it naturally. The 2018 Acura NSX moves into its second model year unchanged. The only other complex vehicles that were competing with the NSX were the more expensive Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 (they are both out of business).
What are the pros and cons of the 2018 Acura NSX?
The 2018 Acura NSX has many advantages, first, it is sexy as hell, has an effortless high-speed grip, a launching pad, flawless sub-3-second acceleration and plenty of technological features.
On the other hand, the road feel can be affected by the tires, in some cases it lacks a supercar cachet, it's quite costly before the carbon-fiber add-ons and the hybrid gas mileage doesn't pan out.
