2017 Acura NSX: The only true all-American supercar? – Los Angeles Times

Posted: Friday, March 24, 2017

Acura likes to boast that its powerful, precise NSX is “the only supercar designed, developed and manufactured in the U.S.”

With no apologies to Chevrolet’s Corvette, Ford’s Mustang GT or Dodge’s Charger, Challenger or Viper, the Acura folks say their second-generation NSX, new for 2017, combines classic sports car sensibilities with cutting-edge car technology to create an entirely unique driving experience.

That may be overstating things. But the 2017 NSX is one awesome automobile.

Assembled at Acura’s high-performance plant in Marysville, Ohio, the NSX chassis uses space-age combinations of ultra-high-strength steel and very lightweight aluminum, married to a largely aluminum body, driven by a hybrid drivetrain with a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V-6 engine and three direct-drive electric motors.
