Years in the making, the final numbers and detailed images surrounding the 2017 Acura NSX are finally here. The second generation of the hybrid supercar was first unveiled at the NAIAS in Detroit at the top of the year, but it wasn't until now that we actually know what this beauty can produce. First things first, the purpose-built twin-turbo V6 3.5-liter engine pumps out 500HP and 406 lb-ft of torque, which is then paired with a rear assist motor good enough to throw in an extra 47 HP and 100 lb-ft of torque, all controlled with a dual-clutch 9-speed gearbox. Further fanning the flames is a pair of 36 HP and 54 lb-ft electric motors that each sit between the front wheels, powered with a lithium-ion battery wedged between the engine and the seats. If you're keeping tally at home, that's a grand total of 573 HP and 476 lb-ft of torque. All this power is good for a 0-60mph sprint time of about 3 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph as well as a rather hefty 3,802 gross weight (but who's counting?). The new 2017 Acura NSX is set to launch next spring, but with no word yet on what its final price tag will be. Until then, enjoy the detailed gallery and two videos packed with running footage below.
