After two model years and around 1,000 deliveries to the US, the 2019 Acura NSX model made some improvements and a small price increase. The car debuted during The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering, during the celebrations at Pebble Beach. Although there are no major changes to the powertrain, some new color options and some refinements to the chassis are appreciated by NSX fans.
Three years after its launch, the 2019 Acura NSX offers a major upgrade. External changes are subtle: the muzzle of the beak above the grid is now silver instead of silver, while the high-gloss trim parts replace the rather matte surfaces in the body. Do you want even more shiny edges? Choose one of the outer carbon fiber packages for the ultimate, shiny, woven flair. If this is not enough, a paint-coloring thermal orange paint is now available. Complete the look with orange calipers on available carbon ceramic brakes, an option of $ 10,600.
2019 Acura NSX at least electric four-way seats are now standard and can be mounted in a sleek new Indigo Blue design. Other previously optional equipment, including premium audio and satellite navigation, is now standard as well, but there are still no frustrating volume controls.
Acura says the rest of the improvements we’re going to mention has shortened Suzuka’s full time by two seconds. So take that for the value its worth. They consist of a 26 percent stiffer front swing rod and 19 percent stiffer rear girders. 21 percent stiffer rear teen buses; a 6 percent stiffer rear hub; and a new software calibration for the computer-controlled bits: the SH-AWD system, magneto rheological dampers, electric power steering and stability control systems. For a car designed as accurately as the NSX, these are relatively important improvements. Do not necessarily expect two seconds of your best personal lap time, but if you’re tuned for suspension dynamics, the 2019 Acura NSX should give the driver more precise and direct feedback.
The 2019 Acura NSX, like the origin of the test site, is a faithful reinterpretation of real work, a simulacrum of what our senses see, hear and feel. With a base price of $ 159,300, this may not be a completely raw, visceral experience, but it’s not designed to be at least traditional. If Mizukami’s excitement on the racetrack is a clue, technology and emotions can happily coexist, as intuitive as that may be.
