The Art of Interwoven Dynamics- Extraordinary By Design
Every detail of the 2017 Acura NSX has been carefully crafted with purpose. Together, the planes and curves, angles and contrasts, proportions and surfaces create an unmistakable identity uniquely its own.
According to Acura, "every aspect of the car must serve a purpose. So while NSX aesthetics are unmistakable, they’re not simply a matter of allure. Every character line, body panel, shape and crease; every air flow intake and outlet; every proportion and ratio is optimized to support its dynamic performance."
While many design elements also serve functional purposes, one of the more interesting design choices is clearly just a little fun. The engine compartment layout has been directly influenced by the Back to the Future films, says NSX chief engineer Ted Klaus.
“Those films were very influential when I was young,” Klaus told NSXPrime.com. “Every kid wanted a DeLorean with a flux capacitor. I included one in almost every car design I dreamed up over the years,” he added. “I wanted to be Doc Brown when I grew up. So it was only natural to include the design in the new NSX. While Honda wouldn’t let me use plutonium, the car still incorporates many groundbreaking new technologies, just like the original NSX. Some might even say it’s a car from the future.”
It's fascinating to see the amount of time and effort that went into building the Acura NSX. It truly is a "marriage of design and engineering." For details, pictures, videos and more information about the aerodynamics, design and craftsmanship, visit: SmailAcura.com/2017-Acura-NSX.htm.
