2019 Acura NSX Features Many Upgrades
Dynamic handling performance has been enhanced via chassis upgrades, new tire specification and Sport Hybrid power unit tuning.
The peak of the Acura brand just got a little brighter with a host of upgrades to the 2019 Acura NSX that include chassis upgrades, new tire specification and Sport Hybrid power unit tuning.
The made-to-order NSX holds its starting price from the previous year, starting at $189,900 topping out at $242,000.
The NSX represents the pinnacle of the Acura brand and more than 30 years of Precision Crafted Performance.
New for 2019, a striking Thermal Orange Pearl premium paint option continues the tradition of NSX colour names inspired by motorsports venues and iconic corners, and pays homage to 30 years of Acura motorsports vehicles with orange accented liveries.
Joining the Thermal Orange Pearl exterior, optional carbon ceramic metallic (CCM) brakes can now be fitted with orange calipers. New for 2019, the standard iron brakes can now be fitted with red calipers.
All 2019 NSX models are distinguished by a new body-colour front grille garnish (previously silver) and high-gloss treatments for the front grille surround, front air intake mesh and rear bumper outlet mesh.
High-gloss treatment is also applied to the available Carbon Fiber Decklid Spoiler and Carbon Fiber Exterior Package – including a front chin spoiler, side sill garnish and rear diffuser.
For the 2019 model, engineers modified chassis components, tires and software tuning to make NSX even more responsive to the will of the driver, elevating performance driving in all circumstances, from daily driving to the circuit.
At the limit, the NSX’s balance, playfulness and controllability have improved, allowing the driver to more precisely modulate understeer and oversteer with subtle throttle inputs.
The changes resulted in a nearly two-seconds faster lap time in testing around the world famous Suzuka Circuit.
