2017 Acura NSX GT3 Pair

Acura enthusiasts know they’re in on a little secret, and it’s that they have access to outstanding levels of luxury, performance, and innovative tech for less than the competition. In recent years, Acura has shown no signs of letting up, with performance innovations like Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and Intelligent Variable Valve Timing (i-VVT), as well as bold new styling and advanced infotainment. Acura is showing no signs letting up, either, as the team at Acura of Ocean found out at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. Here’s what was on display.

Acura NSX GT3

If you’ve been following the Acura NSX, then you know that this premium sports car is in a special class of premium sports cars. Under the hood of this model, you’ll find a turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine, which can be complemented by a hybrid system in order to dish out a max output of 573 hp and 476 lb-ft of torque. At the Detroit Auto Show this year, Acura showed off its race car version of the Acura NSX—the Acura NSX GT3, which will be making its racing debut in the GT3 class in Daytona, FL at the Rolex 24.

Acura VR Simulator

As part of the Acura NSX experience at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, Acura put together a really fun Acura virtual reality simulator that lets you feel like you’re really behind the wheel of the Acura NSX. The system is able to perform a plethora of functions inside the car, going so far as to simulate where your hands are inside the vehicle. Pick the color of your Acura NSX, and then get inside. Once in the cockpit, you can swipe the infotainment system touchscreen, get a sense of the cabin, and then floor it—moving up to 160 mph as quickly as possible.

Acura continues to produce a wide range of innovative, high-performance, and luxury sedans, coupes, and crossovers at a lower price than much of the luxury competition.
