Acura NSX delayed

It’s Monday, so you should expect this kind of cruddy news: but it looks like the Acura NSX is being bumped to a 2017 model year instead of its previously announced arrival of this fall for the 2016 year. 

Yup, you’re going to have to wait till the spring of 2016 to get your hands on the brand new Acura NSX

Why the delay? Well, engineers decided the engine just wasn’t good enough or at least that it needed a change. So, instead of the originally planned transverse NA V6 mill, they’re switching it to a longitudinal twin-turbo V6 engine. This change means an entirely new and bespoke engine, hence the delay. 

This last setback means it will have taken Acura four years to begin production on the NSX since it was first announced. That’s a long time. However, we know it’ll be well worth the wait.
