The 2017 Acura NSX is one of the most outstanding hybrid cars from the entire segment, the model setting apart from the others with an exquisite design and the latest technology.
Even if a regular 2017 Acura NSX is priced at $205,700 in the top of the line version, this one seen here has been sold for a whopping $1.2 million, during an auction at Barret-Jackson.
All the money will be sent to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground and will be used in cancer research.
The 2017 Acura NSX is coming with a lightweight chassis, thanks to the carbon fiber or aluminum composites on the roof or interior. Other features refer to carbon ceramic brakes or high-performance suspension system.
Under the hood, the 2017 Acura NSX is extremely powerful, thanks to the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, which develops 500 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. The engine comes with a sand-cast engine block, swing arm-type valve actuators and lightweight cylinder heads.
The engine is also backed by three electric motors, two mounted up front and the third at the rear. All are hooked to a lithium-ion battery pack. The overall power stands at 573 horsepower, being sent to all wheels via a nine-speed transmission. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is done in just 3.0 seconds.
