Twenty-five years after the debut of the original NSX, Acura revealed the production version of its highly anticipated successor to the world's auto media today at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The company will begin accepting custom orders for its new supercar -- developed and produced in the U.S. -- starting in the summer, with deliveries expected later in the year. 

Marking a radical departure from the first generation, the all-new power unit consists of a twin-turbocharged DOHC V6 engine with a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission and three-electric motor Sport Hybrid system, making it an all-wheel drive setup. The dial-operated Integrated Dynamic System features Quiet, Sport, Sport+, and Track modes. Output has yet to be announced, however. 

The 2016 Acura NSX features an innovative new multi-material body design with world's-first material applications and construction processes. The body utilizes a space frame design -- an internal frame constructed of aluminum, ultra-high strength steel and other advanced materials. It rides on 245/35ZR19 front and 295/30ZR20 rear ContiSportContact high-performance tires.
