Although not confirmed yet, many car experts expect to see 2019 Acura NSX Type S ready already for the next year. Just like the original model, the second generation of this supercar will also get a Type S version, according to various reports.
To remind you, the original Type S was released in Japan in 1997. This was seven years after the model’s initial launch. However, things are going much different these days. So, the new Type S should come much earlier. Some reports suggest next year, but we will have to wait for official confirmation. For this occasion, the company will make some modification. It is still early for some more precise details, but some chassis tunings are certain. Also, we could see some additional horsepower as well. Finally, the 2019 NSX Type S could also come with some new visual details.
2019 Acura NSX Type S redesign
Despite expected modifications, the core of 2019 Acura NSX Type S should remain the same. The new version will be closely related to the base model, featuring the same platform and design. However, some mechanical tunings are expected. To remind you, the original version features a stiffer suspension, compared to the base model from 1990.
We could expect similar things with the new model. However, it is quite questionable, is there even more space for further improvements in this aspect. The current model is already absolutely amazing in pretty much all aspects when it comes to performances. Though, there is always some space for improvement.
2019 Acura NSX Type S styling
Besides some chassis tunings, the 2019 Acura NSX Type S could also get some new details in terms of styling. While the base shape and look will definitely remain the same, some new details are quite possible. So, we could see some tweaks at the front, to even more improve the look, as well as performances. This refers to things like air intakes on a bumper, grille etc. Some other cosmetic stuff like new wheels, color options, and similar things are also possible.
When it comes to the interior design, the base layout will remain the same, although we could see many details. Expect things like new materials, color schemes etc. In terms of standard equipment, the new version should include all from the base model and even include something more.
2019 Acura NSX Type S powertrain
At this moment, it is hard to make some predictions about the engine and performances. Although some additional horsepower is quite possible, we must say that the current model already features stupendous performances. It comes with a hi-output hybrid powertrain, which consists of a V6 engine and three electric motors. Transmission is a 9-speed dual-clutch PRDNLtronic. Total output goes up to amazing 573 horsepower. This amount of power is enough to provide astonishing sub-three second acceleration from zero to sixty, while a top speed over 190 miles per hour. For this occasion, we could see some smaller addition of power, which will provide even more amazing results.
2019 Acura NSX Type S release date and price
The 2019 Acura NSX Type S is yet to be confirmed. However, some reports suggest that new model could arrive already next year. If we take that the new version will come, its price will definitely be higher compared to the base model. The current model starts around 156.000 dollars. So, the new version should be closer to 200.000 dollars.
When it comes to the competition, there are many potential rivals. Just like the base model, the 2019 Acura NSX Type S will probably compete with supercars like Audi R8, Mercedes-AMG GT C, Porsche 911 and others.
