Honda is planning to launch a 2017 Acura NSX Type R next year. The comeback of the company’s legendary sports car was one of the most exciting news in last time. As you probably know, original version of this Japanese ultimate sports car was launched in 1990 and it was produced for more than 15 years. Finally, company designed its successor, almost a decade after. New model came as 2016 Acura NSX. If we consider that original model was also available in “Type R” variant, same thing is expected with new one. According to the latest reports, it will come next year, as 2017 Acura NSX Type R.

Company uses this “Type R” badge for several models. This name is reserved for high-performance variants. Since original NSX was available in this variant, same thing is expected with new model.

When it is about interior, exact differences between this and “standard” NSX are unknown for now. However, if we consider that new Acura NSX Type R is expected to come with some additional savings in terms of weight, we can presume that some of the non-essential parts of the cabin could be removed. In visual aspect, expect to see some “Type R” signs all over the cabin, both inside and outside the vehicle.
